WASHINGTON, DC, May 12, 2014 (Bloomberg Businessweek) -Refiners, paper makers and steel producers have taken aim at a proposal from the Environmental Protection Agency to limit greenhouse gases from power plants, saying they worry it sets a dangerous precedent for them.

Lobbying groups told the EPA in comments released today that the agency is going beyond what's feasible with current tools in requiring new coal plants to capture carbon gases. Once EPA finishes rules for power plants, the top source of carbon dioxide emissions tied to climate change, it has pledged to move to other major emitters.
