Permits for Stationary Sources of Pollutants Subject to Regulation [9 VAC 5 ‑ 85]
This action is exempt from the executive branch review process.
Action:
Permits for Stationary Sources of Pollutants Subject to Regulation (Revision E11)
 
General Information
Action Summary On July 20, 2011 (76 FR 43490), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated final amendments to its regulations for permitting of greenhouse gases (GHGs). The purpose of the regulatory changes is to defer, for a 3-year period, the application of the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and Title V permitting requirements to carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from bioenergy and other biogenic stationary sources in order for EPA to conduct a detailed examination of the science associated with biogenic CO2. The amendments affect the PSD NSR regulations in 40 CFR 51.166 by revising the definition of "subject to regulation." Because Virginia has the authority to directly implement federal PSD regulations as long as its rules are at least as protective as the federal, the corresponding Virginia regulation must be revised accordingly when a final federal rule is promulgated. The amendments also affect the federal operating permit (Title V) regulations in 40 CFR Part 70 by revising the definition of "subject to regulation." Virginia's federal operating permit regulations are federally approved, and must be be revised accordingly when a final federal rule is promulgated.
