Emissions Rules Could Cost Homebuilders $55M

New emissions standards could cost homebuilders and other manufacturers more than $55 million initially and close to $20 million each year after to comply with, The Hill reports.

The EPA proposal, announced this week, would set emissions standards for the manufacturers of brick, structural clay, ceramic walls, floor tiles, and other products used to build homes.

The proposal aims to improve air quality and protect the public health by limiting hazardous pollutants often found in brick and clay. It would limit manufacturers emissions of mercury, metal, dioxins, furans, and acid gas used in the process of making bricks and clay.

Late last month the agency proposed a rule to reduce smog.
