NSPS Review - Subpart G - Nitric Acid Plants

 
Docket ID: EPA-HQ-OAR-2010-0750
Agency: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
Summary:
Section 111(b)(1)(B) of the Clean Air Act mandates that EPA review and if appropriate revise existing New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) at least every 8 years. This NSPS was initially promulgated in 1971. This NSPS was reviewed in 1979 and 1984. On January 2010, consent decree was entered into US District Court between EPA and several environmental groups that required EPA to review the NSPS. This action reviewed and revised the existing NSPS, resulting in new requirements for facilities built or modified after October of 2011. The final rule for this NSPS review was signed on May 14, 2012 and published in the Federal Register August 14, 2012 (77 FR 48433).
