New Source Performance Standards (NSPS)
National Air Quality Conference
February 12, 2014
We are proposing three subparts as follows:
1 We refer to “Strategies for Reducing Residential Wood Smoke” on EPA’s Burn Wise website and note that it includes ideas for local regulations, voluntary programs, funding mechanisms and best burn practices - all of which can help reduce particle pollution from existing wood-burning appliances.
Manufacturers must use 3rd-party, independent, ISO-accredited and EPA-approved test laboratories and certifying entities to demonstrate compliance with a representative appliance for a model line.
EPA also is seeking comment on a 3-Step approach over an 8-year period. This approach would include an interim limit of 0.15 pounds per million Btu heat output 3 years after the rule is published in the Federal Register.
EPA also is seeking comment on phasing in the limits in 3 steps over an 8-year period. This approach would include an interim emissions limit of 0.15 pounds per million Btu heat output 3 years after the rule is published in the Federal Register (the same interim limit as for hydronic heaters).
