Topic: Chrome platers get good news

Small metal refinishing businesses--chrome platers--have been looking down the barrel of a legislative gun recently, but it looks as though the safety's back on.
On December 9, 2005, the EPA released its Final Rule regarding air pollution from small facilities. In general, the news was good: Small operations in five industries, including "chromium electroplaters," will not be required to obtain federal operating permits, a hugely complicated process geared toward large factories.
"The EPA is making a finding for these categories, consistent with the Clean Air Act requirement for making such exemptions," states the text of the rule, "that compliance with title V permitting requirements is impracticable, infeasible, or unnecessarily burdensome on the source categories."
Chrome platers are still required to abide by the standards of the 1990 Clean Air Act, but for now, they can breathe a little easier. An overview of the rule can be found online at www.epa.gov.
