Abstract:
On June 30, 1999, EPA finalized revisions to an EPA final rule regarding permits for air toxics emissions limits for constructed or reconstructed major sources under Section 112(g) of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. This fact sheet explains these revisions which provide a longer time period during which an EPA Regional Administrator may determine maximum achievable control technology (MACT) emission limitations on a case-by-case basis, if the permitting authority has not yet established procedures for requiring MACT on constructed or reconstructed major sources. This amendment also would ensure that major sources can obtain permits to construct or reconstruct in those jurisdictions where permitting authorities need extra time to establish programs implementing the section 112(g) rule.
