EPA clean air plan will create more work for Boilermakers

Charles W. Jones, International President Emeritus

Mandate to reduce NOx emissions spells golden opportunity for construction Boilermakers

Construction Boilermakers considering early retirement should look at the increased benefits two more years of steady work can bring. It could be 30 percent or more.

In September, Carol Browner, director of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), announced a wide-ranging plan for cleaning up the air in 22 states in the eastern U.S. Her plan mandates reducing smog-causing nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions by 1.1 million tons by the year 2003, or 28 percent by the year 2007.
