Utility MATS Rule Compliance (1/21/14)

For many existing affected units, compliance with Subpart UUUUU to 40 CFR Part 63 (typically referred to as the Utility MATS Rule) rule begins on April 16, 2015, although the rule does include a provision for a one-year extension for sources that need more time to install emissions controls.  While the units must be able to meet the applicable MATS emissions limits by April 16, 2015 (or April 16, 2016 if an extension applies), the rule allows sources to conduct the required compliance tests within 180 calendar days after the compliance date.  A copy of the Utility MATS Rule is located in our FTP library.

 RMB has provided regulatory and continuous emission monitoring system (CEMS) consulting services to electric utilities and industrial sources for over twenty years.  Since the Utility MATS Rule was initially proposed, RMB assisted UARG in preparing comments on various technical issues with the rule and has helped numerous utilities to develop monitoring strategies and test programs to assess options for complying with the rule. With respect to the rule’s monitoring options, RMB has provided support to many sources using particulate matter (PM) CEMS, mercury (Hg) CEMS and Hg sorbent trap systems.  RMB has managed several EPRI field demonstration projects for PM and Hg CEMS.  Since 2013, RMB has also managed EPRI’s hydrogen chloride (HCl) CEMS field demonstration project.  Click here for a copy of RMB’s recent Utility MATS Rule newsletter.  Click the following link for a list of services RMB provides to assist with all aspects of MATS compliance:  RMB MATS Services.  Please feel free to contact one of RMB’s staff to discuss our services in more detail.
