Abstract:
This zipped file contains 1 WordPerfect file with the announcement of a Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed rule to delay the permit application deadline, under section 112(j) of the Clean Air Act (the Act), for owners or operators of sources in the 4-year source categories for which a Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standard has not been promulgated. A Direct Final Rule to accomplish these same objectives was also published on May 10, 1996. These source categories are Off-Site Waste Treatment, Printing & Publishing, Polymers & Resins I, and Polymers & Resins IV. This amendment to the rule may possibly eliminate the need to submit a permit application for case-by-case MACT determination.
This rule requires owner or operators of a major source in a source category for which the Agency fails to promulgate a section 112(d) MACT standard to obtain an equivalent emission limitation by permit. The permit application is required to be submitted 18 months after the EPA's missed promulgation date. This date is May 15, 1996 for the 4-year MACT standards which have not been promulgated to date. The direct final amendment to the rule would delay the section 112(j) permit application deadline for sources in the affected 4-year MACT source categories until November 15, 1996.
