Oregon DEQ Passes New Air Quality Rules

FOR RELEASE APRIL 22, 2016—The Oregon Environmental Quality Commission approved the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality's proposed temporary rules for regulating art glass manufacturers in order to reduce metals emissions in Portland. The new temporary rules are more restrictive than federal National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, to which the US Environmental Protection Agency recently concluded Bullseye is subject.
