Hopke To Review Epa Air Pollutant Analysis Plan

Clarkson University Professor Philip Hopke is on a committee of the EPA Science Advisory Board that meets on August 3 to review a document telling companies how to analyze air pollutants they're emitting. The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 list 189 hazardous air pollutants. Companies must install technology to reduce emission of these hazardous air pollutants. They must then perform a "residual risk analysis" ¾  looking at what they're emitting may do to people in the area. The EPA is preparing a document to tell companies how to do these residual risk assessments. Hopke's committee will meet on August 3 to review the document and provide comments to the EPA.
