New NESHAP Rules for Petroleum Refineries Now Final
In addition to finalizing the technical corrections and clarifications to the NESHAP and the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for petroleum refineries proposed in February, the new rule will extend certain compliance deadlines.
For sources of HAPs constructed or reconstructed on or before June 30, 2014, today’s Final Rule adjusts the deadline for:
- MACT 1 regulatory requirements that apply at maintenance vents during startup, shutdown, maintenance, or inspection; and
- MACT 2 regulatory requirements that apply during startup, shutdown, or hot standby for fluid catalytic cracking units (FCCU) and startup/shutdown for sulfur recovery units (SRU).
Other Changes to NESHAPs Regulations for Petroleum Refineries
Other changes covered in this EPA Rule include:
- Clarification of the reporting and recordkeeping requirements for fenceline monitoring;
- Expansion of the list of exceptions for equipment leak requirements;
- An update to siting requirements for passive monitors near known sources of VOCs (volatile organic compounds);
- Updates to regulatory terms to boost clarity;
- Grammatical and typographical corrections; and more.
