2015-040-101-AI Emissions Inventory and General Definitions Update
This rulemaking would lower the lead emissions reporting threshold to 0.5 tons per year for point source in §101.10 to align with reporting requirements in the AERR, in 40 CFR §51.100(s), change the §101.10 rule applicability distance for sites from the shoreline to nine nautical miles from 25 miles for consistency with other state regulations, and exclude certain organic compounds from regulation as a VOC in §101.1. Other proposed changes codify existing business processes and clarify the emissions inventory requirements. If adopted, the revised rules would be submitted to the EPA as revisions to the SIP.
