Greenhouse Gas Permitting
On May 13, 2010, U.S. EPA issued a final rule that establishes thresholds for
greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that define when permits under the New Source Review Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and Title V Operating Permit programs are required for new and existing industrial facilities. This final rule "tailors" the requirements of these Clean Air Act permitting programs to limit which facilities will be required to obtain PSD and Title V permits.
Georgia EPD finalized rule changes that implement the federal GHG permitting requirements.
On June 23, 2014, the US Supreme Court invalidated much of the “GHG Tailoring Rule.” In accordance with Georgia Air Quality Rules, the portions of the Tailoring Rule that included Title V (Part 70) permitting and PSD permitting for “non-anyway sources” has been rendered ineffective.
