ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will postpone presentation of carbon emission rules for three months, which concern on source performance requirement for fossil fuel power facilities. The delay allows EPA to conduct a lengthened and open public process to collect top data associated in carbon emission standards for fossil fuel-powered plants. The rules sought to implement the standards beginning July 26, 2011 and finalizing them on May 26, 2012.
