EBC Climate Change & Air Committee Meeting: Discussion of Proposed Changes to MassDEP 310 CMR 7.00 Air Pollution Control Regulations

September 20, 2016 @ 7:45 am – 9:30 am
Nixon Peabody LLP
100 Summer St
Boston, MA 02110

This EBC Climate Change and Air Committee meeting will focus on the proposed changes to MassDEP’s 310 CMR 7.00 Air Pollution Control Regulations. These changes are being made in accordance with MassDEP’s Workplan for implementing Governor Baker’s Executive Order No. 562 to reduce unnecessary regulatory burden and to meet federal Clean Air Act requirements.

The changes are broad in scope and will affect a wide spectrum of industry sectors in the Commonwealth.

As a special guest, Marc Wolman, Chief of the Stationary Facility Air Regulations Branch, Bureau of Air and Waste, Mass DEP, will be providing an overview of the rationale for the proposed changes and summarizing salient aspects of the new provisions. Many of the proposed amendments are designed to reduce emissions that contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone.

Some of the more substantive changes that will be discussed during the Committee meeting include:
• Plan Approval applicability, exemptions and procedures
• Revised stationary engine and combustion turbine requirements
• Revised volatile organic compounds (VOC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx) Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) requirements for certain emission sources; and
• Replacement of current summertime ozone season nitrogen oxide regional trading program with a state-only nitrogen oxide budget program.
