NDEQ Proposed Area Source NESHAP Rule

The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) is proposing that seven area source NESHAPS be adopted and implemented as issued by the EPA. For two EPA standards, however, the NDEQ is proposing additional rules which will allow sources to limit monthly throughputs below the facility’s maximum design capacity in order to avoid the more stringent and costly controls required for facilities with greater monthly throughputs. Sources taking these limits must document their adherence to the agreed upon lower throughputs. The two industry categories for which this option will be offered are bulk gasoline terminals and gasoline dispensing facilities.

  • Hospital Ethylene Oxide Sterilizers (Subpart WWWWW)
