A DEEP GROWL FROM THE EPA

The Clean Air Act is growing a new set of teeth. The Environmental Protection Agency on Mar. 1 unveiled sweeping regulations the act empowers it to make, requiring chemical manufacturers to reduce airborne emissions of 111 pollutants by 88%. The reform probably will cost chemical companies some $230 million a year and increase some chemical costs by 3%. Manufacturers will have three years to install state-of-the-art technology--such as incinerators on smokestacks--at 370 U.S. plants, but new plants must comply immediately. Companies can choose which smokestacks to control at each plant.EDITED BY KEITH H. HAMMONDS
