Final IB-MACT Rules and Notice of Reconsideration Published (3/21/11)

On March 21, the final IB-MACT Rules for Area sources and Major sources, CISWI NSPS, and DSW Rules were published in the Federal Register. Also published was EPA's Notice of Reconsideration of the final rules. EPA is taking comments on specific elements of the final rules including the following issues related to the area and major source IB MACT rules:

  • Subcategory revisions

  • Fuel specification for the 'Gas-1' subcategory

  • Work practice standard for limited use boilers

  • Application of GACT for area source biomass- and oil-fired boilers

  • Affirmative defense provisions for malfunction events

  • Carbon monoxide monitoring requirements

  • Dioxin/furan emission limit and testing requirements

  • Application of GACT for PM for area source oil-fired boilers

EPA has also invited petitions for reconsideration of other areas of the final rules. The deadline for submission of comments and petitions for reconsideration is May 20, 2011. Please be aware that the reconsideraton process does not change the compliance deadlines of the rules. For sources affected by the IB-MACT rules, the compliance deadline for existing sources is March 21, 2014 and the compliance deadline for new sources is May 20, 2011 or upon startup, whichever is later. Copies of the final rules can be found in our FTP library.
