leave a comment »

In August, the American Wood Council held its second annual members meeting in Atlanta, focusing on the Boiler MACT rule, green building and building energy codes.
The meeting’s theme of “Regulatory Chaos – From Boilers to Buildings” discussed topics relating to increasing regulations facing the wood industry, such as Boiler MACT, formaldehyde, methanol, wood dust, building energy codes and green building regulations.
