Coal Ash Rule Petition for Review Opinion

These consolidated petitions challenge the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2015 Final Rule governing the disposal of coal combustion residuals (“Coal Residuals”) produced by electric utilities and independent power plants. See Hazardous and Solid Waste Management System; Disposal of Coal Combustion Residuals from Electric Utilities (“Final Rule”), 80 Fed. Reg. 21,302 (April 17, 2015). Coal Residuals make up “one of the largest industrial waste streams generated in the U.S.”
