EPA Proposes New MSAT Vehicle Emissions Standard.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced it has proposed a minor adjustment to gasoline standards for certain refiners and importers under the Mobile Source Air Toxics (MSAT) rule.

According to EPA, air toxics baselines serve as fuel standards to reduce emissions of hazardous air pollutants from gasoline-powered vehicles. EPA said the new proposal contains a minor amendment that updates the baseline to reflect new data that was not available when the MSAT rules were finalized in 2001.
