Court of Appeals denies rehearing on EPAs RD&D rule

The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has denied a petition filed by the Cotati, Calif.-based GrassRoots Recycling Network (GRRN) requesting a rehearing on the organization’s challenge of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Research, Development and Demonstration Rule (RD&D). In 2004, GRRN challenged the RD&D rule, which enables landfills to receive research and development permits from state landfill permitting programs. In November 2005, the U.S. Court of Appeals denied GRRN’s challenge for a lack of standing.
