Cans get a break

EPA has assured metal can manufacturers that the industry's Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standard will not be promulgated until at least the summer of 2001, despite a requirement in the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 that the MACT standard must be released by fall 2000.

These standards will require industries to adopt the latest technology to reduce pollution. The law gave EPA an 18-month grace period, which it apparently will exercise. This gives can makers an extra year to work with EPA officials to design a reasonable standard.
