The article reports on the approval of the prevention of significant deterioration (PSD) of particulate matter (PM) less than 2.5 micrometers, significant impact levels and significant monitoring concentration by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Furthermore, the Agency also announces the cancellation of the annual PM 10 increments to PM 2.5 which will be utilized for evaluating particulates subject to PSD. It states that the results will be the basis for granting PSD permit application which complies to the PM 2.5 emissions. The EPA stresses that the comment period for the proposed rule was on November 20, 2007.
