Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, August LETHBRIOGE HERALD-11 Japan short of B.C. coal VANCOUVER (CP) Spokesmen for the two major coking coal producers in British Columbia said Friday their Japanese customers are asking for increased shipments. "The Japanese are in short supply of metallurgical or coking said a spokesman for Kaiser Resources Ltd. "They have wanted increased shipments from us, as well as other companies, for some time." Kaiser, which shipped 2.592 million long tons of coal to 10 Japanese companies in the first half of this year, is Canada's largest coking coal producer. .Last year, Kaiser shipped 4.7 million tons to Japan. The company's contracts call for annual shipments of 4.5 million long tons, plus or minus five per cent. Kaiser's mines are located in southeastern B.C Norman Anderson, Fording Coal Ltd. President, also said But Fording, 40-per-cent owned and managed by Cominco Ltd., expects to ship only 1.5 million tons of the three million tons it is contracted for this year, said Mr. Anderson. Earlier this year, Fording's production in southeastern B.C. was affected by a two- month strike. "We're doing our damndest to meet our contractual obligations, but we're behind Mr. Anderson said. Stockpiles of coking coal are low on the Roberts Bank port south of here where the two companies load their coal for Japan.

Clean air battle looms WASHINGTON (AP) -The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed Friday to let states pollute existing clean air. if they decide industrial and economic growth is more important. The Sierra Club, which ear- lier won a Supreme Court decision forbidding "significant deterioration" of existing clean air, immediately promised a new court challenge to EPA's proposal. EPA deputy administrator John Quarles told a news con- ference the proposal would let the states give industrial and economic growth priority over protection of pure air. He said it would allow con- struction of huge 1.000-mega- watt coal-burning power plants, petroleum refineries, oil shale processors, coal-gas producing plants and other air-polluting installations. Quarles acknowledged that the federal courts have re- quired, since 1972, that existing clean air must be given greater protection than is afforded by the country's general air quality standards protecting public health and the environment. But Quarles also admitted EPA's proposed regulations would let the states pollute existing clean air right up to the limits, for the sake of industrial and economic growth. "I would expect there would be further litigation on this Quarles, said. His ex- pectation was quickly con- firmed by Bruce Terns, lawyer for the Sierra Club, who attended the news conference. Terris told reporters that EPA's justification of its pro- posed policy already has been rejected in the courts and would be rejected again. Quarles said a couit rejection of the EPA proposal, however, would probably prompt Congress to amend the Clean Air Act and clarify its intentions on this thorny issue. He said key members of the House of Representatives and Senate have been reluctant to get involved in it so far. In the 1970 Clean Air Act, Congress clearly required es- tablishment of federal stand- ards forbidding air pollution harmful to human health, plus later, more stringent standards protecting animals, plants, property and environmental values. These standards have been established and are being car- ried out by EPA. SCRAPER PLANT FOR SALE IN B.C. 4-Cat with lots of work in an established territory. Exceptionally pro- fitable.
