  1. Greenhouse Gases Permitting Tasha Burns Air Permits Division Texas Commission on Environmental Quality Environmental Trade Fair 2014

  2. Introduction Rulemaking Title V & PSD Applicability Transition Implementation

  3. Rulemaking

  4. HB 788 • Governor signed - June 14, 2013 • Effective immediately • Amended THSC §382.0621 • New THSC §382.05102

  5. Process to Gain Authority TCEQ rulemaking TCEQ SIP revision submittal EPA SIP approval EPA FIP rescission

  6. Parallel Processing

  7. Authority Transition Process TCEQ Permitting GHGs Rule Adoption Rule Proposal FIP Rescission SIP Approval SIP Proposal March 26, 2014 Oct 23, 2013 Feb 18, 2014 30 days

  8. Affected 30 TAC Chapters

  9. Basics

  10. The Pollutant GHGs

  11. Calculating CO2e

  12. Applicability

  13. Title V Applicability • Potential to emit • 100 tpy or more GHGs on mass basis, and • 100,000 tpy or more CO2e

  14. Title V Applicability Example • Mass basis (condition 1) • 25,000 tpy CO2 • 5,000 tpy CH4 • 1,000 tpy N2O = 31,000 tpy GHGs

  15. Title V Applicability Example • CO2e (condition 2) • (25,000 tpy CO2) x (1 GWP) • (5,000 tpy CH4) x (25 GWP) • (1,000 tpy N2O) x (298 GWP) =448,000 tpy CO2e

  16. Title V Applicability Example YES! • Does Title V apply? • Mass = 31,000 tpy • 100 tpy or more, and • CO2e = 448,000 • 100,000 tpy or more CO2e

  17. Title V Timeline 12 months

  18. PSD Applicability • EPA’s approach to GHGs • PSD major source • Subject to regulation

  19. PSD Applicability • Mass basis = 100/250 tpy GHGs • New = 100,000 + tpy CO2e • Major mod = 75,000 + tpy CO2e

  20. §116.164(a) • New “non-anyway” (a)(3) • “Anyway” mod • (a)(2) • “Non-anyway” mod • (a)(4) • New “anyway” • (a)(1) • Minor with new major source • (a)(5) • §116.164

  21. PSD Timeline Prior to construction

  22. Transition

  23. Transfer to TCEQ

  24. Transfer to TCEQ

  25. Remain at EPA
