DEQ re-opened the public comment period for this rulemaking to add new and amended federal rules adopted between July 1, 2015 and July 1, 2016 and amendments made to the federal emission guidelines for commercial and industrial solid waste incineration units on June 23, 2016. The comment period closed at 4 p.m., Dec. 23, 2016.

See December 2016 Oregon Bulletin

 

DEQ proposes to update Oregon rules to reflect new and amended federal standards for:

 
  • Toxics of concern
    DEQ proposes adopting the new residual risk and technology standards for aerospace manufacturing and rework, amino and phenolic resin manufacturing, electric arc furnace steelmaking facilities, flexible polyurethane foam production, generic maximum achievable control technology, offsite waste and recovery, pesticide active ingredient production, phosphate fertilizer production, phosphoric acid manufacturing, polyether polyols production, polymer and resin production, primary aluminum reduction, and secondary aluminum production. This would give DEQ the authority to include the new federal requirements in Title V air quality permits it oversees under authority from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
  • Sources that may endanger public health and welfare
    DEQ proposes adopting the new federal standards for crude oil and natural gas facilities for which construction, modification, or reconstruction commenced after Sep. 18, 2015; greenhouse gas emissions from electric generating units; kraft pulp mills constructed, reconstructed or modified after May 23, 2013; and wool fiberglass manufacturing. This would give DEQ the authority to include the new federal requirements into Title V permits.
  • Revised federal standards
    DEQ proposes adopting revised federal standards by reference.
  • Revised federal emission guidelines
    EPA amended emission guidelines for commercial and industrial solid waste incineration units. States are required to develop rules and state plans to implement federal emission guidelines.
 
Update state plan to implement the amended federal emission guidelines for commercial and industrial solid waste incineration units.
 
 
 
 
These rules contain EPA's evaluation of fiscal and economic impacts in their preambles.
