EPA schedules 2 public hearings on Tier 3 gasoline proposal

The US Environmental Protection Agency will hold public hearings Apr. 24 in Philadelphia and Apr. 29 in Chicago about its proposed Tier 3 gasoline sulfur content and vehicle emissions limits.

Both hearings are scheduled to start at 10 a.m.

The proposal would set new vehicle emissions standards and lower the sulfur content of gasoline, considering the vehicle and its fuel as an integrated system staring in 2017, according to EPA.

The American Petroleum Institute and American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers each have called the plan unnecessary and costly.
