EPA Wins Court Challenge

Exxon Mobil Corp. and Chevron Corp. have lost a court challenge of a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ruling that allows states to set tougher clean- fuel standards than the federal government.

The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld an EPA ruling that Clark County, Nevada, can require companies to sell gasoline with a minimum 3.5 percent oxygen content during the winter season. The requirement is intended to cut down carbon monoxide emissions in the Las Vegas area.

The federal Clean Air Act of 1990 requires refiners to make and sell oxygenated, or reformulated, gasoline in the most polluted areas of the country by using additives like ethanol or methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE). The EPA is seeking a national ban on the use of MTBE, which it says is leaking from gas storage tanks into drinking water supplies.
