Clarification: EPA Fines Wood Stove Manufacturers
Last month we reported on the EPA's fining of stove manufacturers for recordkeeping violations. The EPA did not release the dates of the fines and our story did not mean to imply that these fines have just occurred. HPBA provided this rejoinder: "In over 20 years, the only violations of EPA's program have been recordkeeping issues, which have no impact on wood stove emissions. Wood stove manufacturers continue to deliver great products that heat and burn much cleaner than the millions of old, uncertified stoves that are still in people's homes." - Rich Ali, HPBA's director of Government Affairs.
