Proposed EGU MACT and NSPS Revisions Published (5/3/11)

On May 3, the proposed National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) from Coal- and Oil-fired Electric Utility Steam Generating Units (“EGU MACT”) were published in the Federal Register.  Within the same rulemaking package, EPA also published proposed revisions to the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Fossil-Fuel-Fired Electric Utility Steam Generating Units (NSPS Subpart Da), Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Steam Generating Units (NSPS Subpart Db), and Small Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Steam Generating Units (NSPS Subpart Dc).

Comments on the proposed EGU MACT rule and associated NSPS revisions are due by July 5, 2011.  EPA will also hold public hearings on these proposed rules in Chicago and Philadelphia on May 24, 2011 and in Atlanta on May 26, 2011.  Further details on these hearings can be found in the April 28 Federal Register notice. EPA is subject to a Consent Decree, which requires the Agency to issue the final rule by November 16, 2011.

A copy of the proposed rulemaking can be found in our FTP library.  The EGU MACT rule will have significant impact on the electric utility industry, both for exisiting as well as potential new units.  RMB currently is engaged with several utilities in a project designed to evaluate many technical aspect of the proposed rule and help its clients develop compliance strategies and provide meaningful comments on the proposed rule.  If you are interested in participating in this project, please contact Steve Norfleet at (919) 791-3123.
