USEPA will begin regulating the emissions of greenhouse gases in Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permits beginning January 2nd, 2011, just a few weeks away. Their long-awaited GHG BACT guidance was issued on November 10 and included over 450-pages of guidance and sector-specific whitepapers (seven sectors) on controlling greenhouse gases. All new major source permits not finalized by January 2nd are potentially impacted. Some facilities may have to install new controls, modify their permitting practices, and comply with significant new recordkeeping and permitting requirements. There is a good likelihood that your next major permitting effort and capital project will be considerably more difficult and complicated under the new GHG rules and guidance.
This presentation is intended to help you quickly understand this new EPA guidance and come up-to-speed on the latest strategies for addressing GHG BACT.
In this presentation, the speakers will:
Discuss strategies for minimizing the impact of the permitting and control requirements associated with the new rules from USEPA.
Explain regulatory options, control equipment options, costs, and control efficiencies achieved in practice; and
Help you make informed decisions about these issues that could dramatically affect your facility.
The focus of the presentation will be to discuss strategies for minimizing the impact of the permitting and control requirements associated with the new rules from USEPA. Significant time will be spent discussing regulatory options, control options, costs, and control efficiencies achieved in practice.
