Wave Of EPA Regulations Could Overshadow New Pollution Rule

(NASDAQ 7-10-2010) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released a major set of power-plant air-pollution rules this week, but even more far- reaching regulations are in the works.

The regulations may also make it more difficult for Milwaukee’s utility, WE Energies, to sell the ash, which is a byproduct of the coal burning process. It’s successfully marketed this waste product to concrete, cement and wallboard manufacturers.
