Summary

The Air Emissions Operating Permit Regulations for the Purpose of Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act make the state Title V permitting program (Permit Regulations for the Construction and/or Operation of Air Emissions Equipment) consistent with the federal requirements by including the EPA’s Green House Gas Emission standards. Green House Gasses are: Carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, and sulfur hexafluoride. These shall not be subject to regulation unless, as of July 1, 2011 the Green House Gas emissions are at a stationary source emitting or potentially emitting 100,000 tons per year of co2 equivalent emissions (calculated by multiplying the mass amount of emissions, for each of the 6 Green House Gasses, by the gas's associated global warming potential found in table A-1 to Subpart A of 40 CFR part 98- Global Warming Potentials). Prior to July 21, 2014 the mass of the carbon dioxide shall not include carbon dioxide emissions resulting from the combustion or decomposition of non-fossilized and biodegradable organic material originating from plants, animals, or microorganisms.
