U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Webinar
EPA’s Air Quality Regulations for Stationary Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines (RICE) and Proposed Rule Reconsideration
Date and Time:
Thursday, June 28th 2012, 9:30 am – 12:00.
Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency office, 3104 E. Augusta, Spokane
This two-part webinar provides an overview of EPA’s regulations for stationary reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICE), and an update on potential revisions. RICE are used to produce electric power, pump water, and operate compressors. Those familiar with the rules can hear about potential rule revisions by joining the second part. Under this rule, facilities with stationary emergency engines will need to track their use to avoid exceeding annual hourly limits on non-emergency use. Some non-emergency stationary engines will be subject to emission limits (which may require retrofit), stack testing requirements, and the need to submit initial notifications that were due in August 2010 for diesel engines and February 2011 for gasoline engines. These requirements may apply to you!
Melanie King of the US EPA’s Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards, the RICE rule writer, will provide an overview of EPA’s National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) and New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for stationary RICE. She will cover the applicability of the rules, emission standards, and other compliance requirements.
Melanie King will discuss changes to the RICE NESHAP and NSPS that EPA expects to propose by May 22, 2012 in response to petitions for reconsideration of the RICE NESHAP. Roy Crystal of EPA Region 1 (New England), Heather Valdez of EPA Region 10 (Pacific Northwest), and a representative of EPA Region 8 (Rocky Mountain region) will explore compliance issues for sectors including sand and gravel mining, oil and gas production, and electric power production, and in rural Alaska. They will also present tools for compliance. The webinar will include questions and answers.
