Prior to installing a new source or modifying an existing source of regulated emissions, a facility must submit a permit application and receive an Air Quality Permit to Construct/Operate. MCAQ’s 2012 Spring Workshop: "Permitting 101" focused on the fundamentals of compiling and submitting a complete permit application. Topics included guidance on emission calculations and completing an NC Toxics Review. A brief regulatory review of Area Source GACTs for 40CFR63 Subpart JJJJJJ “National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Area Sources: Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Boilers" (6J) and 40CFR63 Subpart ZZZZ “National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Area Sources: Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines" (4Z) was provided. Breakout sessions were tailored specifically for PM Sources, VOC Sources, and Title V Sources.
NESHAP is an acronym for the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, which is found in the Code of Federal Regulations Title 40 Part 61. Mecklenburg County Air Quality ("MCAQ") enforces 40 CFR 61 Subpart M – "National Emission Standard for Asbestos." 40 CFR 61.145 - "Standard for demolition and renovation" is applicable to all facilities that are being demolished and those facilities being renovated where renovation may result in regulated asbestos containing materials ("RACM") being stripped, removed, dislodged, cut, drilled, or similarly disturbed in regulated quantities .
Stage I Vapor Recovery
Gasoline dispensing facilities receive gasoline products in underground storage tanks (UST's) from vapor tight truck tanks. Pipes and valves interconnecting the UST's and truck tank create a "closed loop" (i.e. Stage I gasoline vapor recovery system). The Stage I gasoline vapor recovery system collects 96% of the vapors that would have otherwise been emitted to the atmosphere to form ozone, and returns them to the bulk gasoline terminal for processing.
