Summary

The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 is perhaps the most comprehensive and far-reaching piece of environmental legislation that has been passed. The implementation of this legislation will span the next 20 years. The intent of this paper is to discuss four aspects of the amendments. The first is relative to the history and magnitude of the clean air legislation, the second is to present a brief listing of the titles in the new legislation, the third is to discuss the applicability of the legislation to the glass industry, and the last is to suggest some courses of action.
