Start Preamble


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


Withdrawal of direct final rule.


Due to an adverse comment, EPA is withdrawing the direct final rule to approve reasonable available control technology (RACT) to limit volatile organic compound (VOC) and nitrogen oxides (NOX) emissions from three individual sources located in Pennsylvania. In the direct final rule published on April 4, 2005 (70 FR 16955), we stated that if we received adverse comment by May 4, 2005, the rule would be withdrawn and not take effect. EPA subsequently received an adverse comment on April 16, 2005. EPA will address the comment received in a subsequent final action based upon the proposed action also published on April 4, 2005 (70 FR 17027). EPA will not institute a second comment period on this action.


The direct final rule is withdrawn as of May 26, 2005.
