  1. 1. Updates http://www.agneya.inGHG Regulations - USThe nuts and bolts arrangements required to systematically regulate GHGs are being made in the US.August was a month of quick developments on the processes design. The federal government movedcloser to regulating carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions by regulation. The USEnvironmental Protection Agency (EPA) released two proposals in August to ensure that stateagencies will be in a position to start issuing air permits covering greenhouse gases on January 2,2011 when a new EPA “tailoring rule” takes effect.This rule will require developers building new power plants, factories or other “sources” ofemissions — or modifying existing sources — to get air permits before starting work if thegreenhouse gas emissions are expected to exceed certain thresholds. The rule is part of the“prevention of significant deterioration” or PSD program that already applies under the Clean Air Actto some other pollutants. Greenhouse gases are being added to the list.The rule is a beginning of greenhouse gas regulation. A permit will initially be required only forexisting facilities that are already subject to the PSD program and that increase their carbon dioxideor other greenhouse gas emissions by more than 75,000 tons per year of CO2-equivalent.The August proposals are the first of three proposals that are needed to put the machinery in placeto regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse cases. Other proposals will follow to address stateauthority to issue operating permits and what will be considered the “best available controltechnology” or BACT that owners of power plants, factories and other sources will be required toemploy to control covered emissions.
