Prevention of Significant Deterioration and Title V Greenhouse Gas Tailoring Rule Step 3

US EPA has initiated the next step in the “Tailing Rule”. This rule will further tailor the applicability criteria that determines which stationary sources and modification projects become subject to permitting requirements for greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions under the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and title V programs of the Clean Air Act (CAA).

In this rule, EPA will establish the third phase of the phase-in approach, which the agncy refers to as “Step 3”. Step 3 may apply PSD and title V to additional sources, effective July 1, 2013. Currently, EPA anticipates publishing a notification of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) in February 2012.
