Effectuation of Additional and New Deferrals for Area Sources from Title V Permitting Requirements, Incorporation by Reference of Federal Amendments to 40 C.F.R. part 63, subparts M, N, O, T, X, DD, YY, EEE, and JJJ, and Incorporation by Reference of new Federal Standards in 40 C.F.R. part 63, subparts EEE, 000, RRR, and VVV into Colorado Air Quality Control Commission

Background

This Statement of Basis, Specific Statutory Authority and Purpose complies with the requirements of the Administrative Procedures Act, C.R.S. (1988), Sections 24-4-103(4) and (12.5) for adopted or modified regulations, and with the requirements of Federal regulations incorporated by reference.

Prior to the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments, section 112 of the Clean Air Act was enacted to help reduce the levels of air toxics emissions nationwide; EPA was given the authority to promulgate national health-based standards (40 C.F.R. part 61). However, the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments established Title III that amended section 112 of the Clean Air Act to provide EPA with the authority to establish national technology-based standards (40 C.F.R. part 63) to reduce the emission of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) from sources that emit such pollutants. Both parts 61 and 63 standards are called National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs). However, the part 63 standards have also been called Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards.

Basis

In accordance with section 502(a) of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the authority to exempt non-major sources, including area sources within the section 112 program, from Title V permitting requirements if the agency finds that compliance with the permitting requirements is impracticable, infeasible, or unnecessarily burdensome on the sources. Also, the General Provisions that implement section 112 of the CAAA provide that unless the EPA explicitly exempts or defers area sources that are subject to a NESHAP from Title V permitting requirements, they are subject. As a result, the EPA provided permitting authorities with the discretion to defer these sources from submitting an application for a Title V permit until December 9,2000. Through a rulemaking in February 1999, the AQCC effectuated the deferral. The EPA has promulgated additional and new area source discretionary deferrals for the following NESHAP source categories: dry cleaners, chrome platers, halogenated solvent degreasers, ethylene oxide sterilizers, secondary lead smelters, and secondary aluminum producers. The additional and new deferrals were promulgated in order to obtain sufficient information to determine whether permanent exemptions are warranted for these area sources given the benefit for permitting such sources versus the costs and other burdens on such sources associated with obtaining Title V permits. Moreover, EPA was concerned with the impact on permitting authorities in issuing area source permits in addition to the existing major source and other source permits that state agencies have been struggling to issue since the inception of the Title V program. The Division agrees with the EPA's assessment. The additional and new deferrals would require these sources to submit a Title V application by December 9,2005. Just as with the December 9,2000 deferral, this additional Title V operating permit deferral is an option that may be adopted by the Commission and not an automatic deferral that these sources can invoke. Also, as with the previous deferral, the additional deferral does not affect compliance by these sources with the underlying standards. There are approximately 445-660 sources that would be affected by this rulemaking.

In addition, the EPA has promulgated revisions to the following current standards: 40 C.F.R. part 63, Dry Cleaning, Chrome Plating, Ethylene Oxide Sterilization, Halogenated Solvent Cleaning, Secondary Lead Smelting, Offsite Waste Recovery, and Groups I and IV Polymers and Resins NESHAPs; and the EPA has promulgated the following new standards: 40 C.F.R. part 63, Hazardous Waste Combustors, Publicly Owned Treatment Works, Amino/Phenolic Resins Production, and Secondary Aluminum Production. The State of Colorado is required under section 112 of the Clean Air Act to adopt such revisions and new standards into its regulations. This rulemaking adopts these revisions to current NESHAPs and new NESHAPs.

Authority

Sections 25-7-105(1)(b) and 25-7-109(2)(h) and -109(4), C.R.S. (1999) authorize the Commission to adopt emission control regulations and emission control regulations relating to hazardous air pollutants respectively.

Purpose

Effectuation of the additional and new area source deferrals would provide the Division with additional time to obtain sufficient information to determine whether a permanent deferral for these types of sources is warranted. In addition, if the deferrals are not effectuated, the Division's Title V program will be processing permits for 445-660 facilities as of December 9,2000.

Adoption of the federal amendments to 40 C.F.R. part 63, subparts M, N, O, T, U, X, DD, YY, EEE, and JJJ, and new federal standards in 40 C.F.R. part 63, subparts EEE, OOO, RRR, and VVV will make these revised NESHAPs and new NESHAPs enforceable under Colorado law.

Effectuation of the deferrals and adoption of the amendments to the existing NESHAPs and new NESHAPs will not impose upon sources additional requirements beyond the minimum required by federal law, and may benefit the regulated community by providing sources with up-to-date information.
