EPA Discusses Renewable Fuel With Senator

Posted: Updated:

Senator Heidi Heitkamp and the head of the Environmental Protection Agency will be in North Dakota this week to discuss coal and renewable fuel.

North Dakota may have missed out on the opportunity of hosting an EPA's listening session last year, but industry leaders will have a chance to speak about new coal regulations with the head of the EPA this Friday.

Gina McCarthy will be at the Great Plains Synfuels plant later this week to meet with representatives in the coal industry about the proposed EPA emission rules for existing power plants.

"She's coming out here. It looks like she's coming to see first hand some of the coal technology and things that we're working on. If she comes and looks at these with an open mind it almost can't help but have an impact on the regulations. She'll be able to see with her own eyes what a great job we're doing here in North Dakota on coal technology," says McCarthy.

McCarthy will also hear from the agriculture industry about proposed changes to the federal Renewable Fuel Standard that would affect North Dakota's ethanol industry.
