Monday's edition of the Federal Register contains new rules for certain chemical substances, audits by the Defense Department and energy conservation standards for residential wood heaters.

Here's what is happening:

Efficiency: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is moving forward with new energy conservation standards for residential wood heaters under the Clean Air Act.

The EPA estimates the new energy conservation standards will produce more than $100 in public benefits for each additional dollar manufacturers spend complying with the rules.

The energy conservation standards would include new emissions limits and stronger test methods, and encompass a broader scope of wood heaters, the agency said.

"Residential wood smoke emissions are a significant national air pollution problem and human health issue," the EPA wrote. "These emissions occur in many neighborhoods across the country, including minority and low-income neighborhoods, and impact people in their homes."
