WASHINGTON (April 30)—All rubber product manufacturers must file the first part of a Title V permit application under the Clean Air Act by May 15, according to officials of the Rubber Manufacturers Association. The filing is required by congressional mandate because the Environmental Protection Agency hasn't yet completed its Maximum Achievable Control Technology standards for the rubber industry, and companies that don't file could be subject to stiff EPA penalties. The RMA is offering help and advice to members on its Web site relating to the applications.
