PA DEP Opens Comment Period On New Air Regulation For Compressor Stations

On the same day that Rand published a study finding compressor stations are the major source of air pollution from gas production, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection announced a rule that its press release asserts cuts emissions from compressor stations by 75% to 90%.

Comments on the regulation are due March 19th.  Emissions from compressor stations can be slashed by running them on electricity or natural gas or by installing the best available pollution control equipment on engines using diesel for power.
