The Environmental Protection Agency got a little backup Wednesday in a federal lawsuit challenging its carbon emissions standards for new-build coal-fired power plants. Two amici curiae briefs, one submitted by carbon capture and storage scientists and another by academics whose work focuses on technology innovation, asserted that contrary to the arguments of the petitioners, the EPA is correct in determining the feasibility, as required by the Clean Air Act, of partial CCS for emissions reduction on new-build coal-fired power plants.
