Reclassification of Major Sources as Area Sources Under Section 112 of the Clean Air Act
On this page:
This rule implements the clear language of the Clean Air Act that allows a “major source” of hazardous air pollutants to reclassify as an “area source” after acting to limit emissions.
The rule will encourage facilities to pursue innovations in pollution-reduction technologies and relieve regulatory requirements intended for much larger emitters.
