The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) is proposing to revise the guidelines for Part 212 to improve the clarity of its requirements.
The document issued by NYSDEC outlines the procedures for evaluating the emissions of criteria and non-criteria air contaminants from process operations in New York State. Guidelines include three (3) flow charts to help the end user understand how to:
Flow chart #1 tells us the first step in implementing Part 212 is to determine:
Flow chart #2 explains how to assign an ER for all criteria and non-criteria air contaminants from the applicable process operations.
Flow chart #3 describes how to determine the required amount of control for the process operations.
Implication to Process Facilities: The new Air guide establishes the procedures that facilities with process air emissions need to take to determine if the facility is covered by Part 212, and whether the facility is in compliance with the Part 212 emission limits and whether the facility has to reduce their emissions.
The NYS DEC is giving interested parties the opportunity to submit written comments on the proposed Air Guide. Comments may be submitted until 5:00 p.m. February 12, 2021.
