Lynn L. Bergeson, "Disclosure Protection May Narrow," Chemical Processing, February 2010.

A business' ability to claim information as confidential when submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) may soon be at risk, based on several EPA initiatives rolled out over the past year. As Congress gears up for Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) legislative reform, stakeholders are preparing for changes in the scope of confidential business information (CBI) protection under TSCA.

Lynn L. Bergeson, "EPA Takes Unprecedented Action," Chemical Processing, January 2010.

Lynn L. Bergeson, "EPA Targets Electric Utilities," Chemical Processing, November 2009.

Approximately 5.4 million cubic yards, or 1.1 billion gallons, of coal ash from the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) plant near Knoxville, Tenn., in December 2008 flooded some 300 acres of land, damaging property, polluting waterways, and killing fish. TVA will likely spend more than $500 million and perhaps as much as $1 billion dollars on the cleanup, says the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The TVA debacle was EPA’s wake-up call for potential hazards presented by coal ash staged in some 584 units at approximately 219 domestic electric utilities.

EPA launched an online discussion forum on August 31 to receive input on future priorities for EPA’s National Enforcement Program.
