Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Since the US Congress was unable to promulgate any legislation in 2010 specifically reducing GHG emissions (i.e., “cap and trade”) and because several courts have ordered the EPA to address GHG emissions, as GHGs are now considered “pollutants”, the agency has made an effort to best apply existing Clean Air Act (CAA) rules on GHG emissions.

Many have complained that this is like putting a square peg in a round hole; the CAA addresses pollutant issues, such as health effects, not directly relevant to GHGs. However, the agency was ordered to act. In 2010, the EPA issued its “Tailoring Rule” to tailor elements of the CAA to GHG emissions. Some elements of the Tailoring Rule went into effect on January 1, 2011, and the remaining elements will go into effect July 1, 2011.

The Tailoring Rule requires certain procedures to be performed in order to be permitted to build new facilities, implement certain expansions, permitting, and other activities.

This webinar will provide information on the details of the Rule, such as which types of activities and sources are applicable, how GHG emissions should be calculated, and what procedures must be performed to address the Rule to enable your proposed change to occur more smoothly.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

  • Background about the problem with GHGs and what has brought us to this point.
  • Which CAA rules are impacted by the Tailoring Rule and which types of activities an owner or operator must be concerned with applied to GHGs.
  • How these rules apply to GHGs. Which projects are impacted and how can one avoid Tailoring Rule applicability.
  • If a proposed project must address CAA rules tailored to GHGs, what must the facility do and what information is necessary to demonstrate to the EPA compliance.
  • How air permits are impacted by the Tailoring Rule and which permits may need to be modified as a result.
  • Strategies to minimize slowdowns and other impacts of the Tailoring Rule.
