Holding large polluters accountable: Waste Emissions Charge


Mar 20, 2024


2:00 pm - 3:00 pm




Clean Air Council

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently proposed its Waste Emissions Charge for oil and gas operators. This rule would require large polluters to pay a fee for excessive climate-warming emissions. It would also incentivize operators to comply with existing methane regulations as soon as possible and plug wells to avoid additional emissions.

The public comment period for the Waste Emissions Charge is currently open and will close on March 26, 2024. Please attend our informational webinar on Wednesday, March 20 from 2-3pm to learn more about the Waste Emissions Charge and how you can voice your support for a strong final rule. Clean Air Council, Moms Clean Air Force, and Earthworks staff will speak about their work addressing air pollution in Pennsylvania and how the EPA’s Waste Emissions Charge will be a key tool for ensuring operators comply with regulations and reduce their emissions.

Speakers will discuss the importance of reducing pollution, various aspects of the rule, and how the rule fits into other federal methane mitigation efforts. If you cannot attend, please register so you can receive a recording of the webinar.
