Air Permits

Topic Index


EPA Region 6 has very limited storage space for hardcopies of permitting related documents in our office. Therefore, we request that permit applicants submitting copies of permit applications, permit addenda, and permit related air quality modeling data to EPA do so in a searchable Portable Document Format or Microsoft Word on a compact disk (CD) by regular mail to the EPA Contact address listed at the end of this page and also send copies, properly identified, of those same files via email . If the permit applicant is responsible for publishing public notices in the State where they are requesting a permit, we request that the applicant transmit copies of those public notices via email ( R6AirPermits@epa.gov )


You will need Adobe Reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA's PDF page to learn more.

There are three Federal programs mandated by the Clean Air Act and the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments impact Air Permits for facilities that are defined as stationary sources. The regulations for these programs can be found in the 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR): New Source Review (40 CFR part 51), Operating Permits (40 CFR part 70), and Air Toxics (40 CFR part 63).


NEW SOURCE REVIEW

New Source Review (NSR) provides a State permit for air emission units prior to construction or modification. This program is the oldest of the three and is based on the provisions of the Clean Air Act to protect air quality using the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). All sources, both major and minor, are subject to NSR unless the emissions are below the regulatory threshold as specified by the State permitting authority. The regulatory thresholds are specified for six criteria pollutants defined in the Act. These pollutants are: Nitrogen Oxide compounds (NOx), Sulphur Dioxide (SO2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Volatile Organic compounds (VOC), Particulate Material (PM-10/PM-2.5), and Lead (Pb). As the NSR program is implemented under State/Local regulations, please refer to the State contact for specific questions.

Economic Development Zone (EDZ) - Section 173(a)(1)(B) of the Clean Air Act allows the Administrator to identify, in consultation with the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, zones within non-attainment areas that should be targeted for economic development. EPA approved a request from Arkansas to identify Crittenden County, Arkansas as an EDZ on February 14, 2006. Below is a copy of the approval letter and supporting documents for Crittenden County's EDZ identification:

EPA Region 6 Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) Permitting Process for Greenhouse Gases (GHG)

On February 18, 2014, EPA Region 6 proposed approval of the Texas SIP revision to adopt and implement the permitting of GHGs in the Texas PSD program. In this same action, EPA is also proposing to rescind the GHG FIP in Texas. EPA’s proposed approval is open for comment for 30 days from the date of publication. Our rulemaking docket is EPA-R06-OAR-2013-0808. EPA Region 6 has developed a process for transitioning pending permit applications and EPA issued permits to the TCEQ following the rescission of the FIP. Our transition process, titled “Transition Process for Pending GHG PSD Permit Applications and Issued GHG PSD Permits Upon Rescission of the GHG PSD FIP” is available in the docket for this rulemaking.

EPA Region 6 is the agency responsible for issuing PSD permits for major sources of Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) under Federal Implementation Plans (FIPs) in the state of Texas. The State of Texas still retains approval of their plans and PSD programs for pollutants that were subject to regulation before January 2, 2011, i.e., regulated NSR pollutants other than GHGs. Additional information describing the permitting authorities in Texas: TCEQ Letter, EPA Response Letter

Next Steps and Preliminary Views on the Application of CAA Permitting Programs to GHG Following the June 23, 2014 Supreme Court Decision.”

An April 2011 Question and Answer document describes some of the permitting scenarios for sources with “dual PSD permitting authorities”: http://www.epa.gov/nsr/ghgdocs/ghgissuedualpermitting.pdf

The Region 6 states of Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, New Mexico, and the City of Albuquerque are not under a FIP, and facilities in those states should contact the following regulatory Agencies for information about PSD permitting for major sources of GHGs:
Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality: http://www.deq.louisiana.gov/portal/tabid/64/Default.aspx
Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality: http://www.deq.state.ok.us/AQDnew/permitting/index.htm
New Mexico Environment Department: http://www.nmenv.state.nm.us/aqb/permit/index.html

Tribal Minor New Source Review Permitting

Introduction

On July 1, 2011, the EPA promulgated a final Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) that implements New Source Review (NSR) preconstruction air pollution control requirements in areas in Indian country. The FIP, which is titled "Review of New Sources and Modifications in Indian Country" includes two NSR rules for the protection of air quality in Indian country. One of those rules, known as the Minor NSR Rule, applies to new industrial facilities or modifications at existing industrial facilities with the potential to emit equal to or more than the minor NSR thresholds but less than the major NSR thresholds, generally 100 to 250 tons per year (tpy). The FIP gives EPA Region 6 the authority to review applications for and issue minor NSR permits to stationary sources on Indian country in the Region (Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas). The FIP also allows EPA to delegate that authority to tribes in the Region that request it and are able to demonstrate appropriate capability to implement the plan. Additionally, the FIP can be replaced by an EPA-approved tribal implementation plan (TIP).

The Minor NSR program provides three options for obtaining permits:

  • Site-Specific Permits - includes case-by-case determinations of the source emission limits as well as any control technology requirements;
  • General Permits - permits that have been developed for a number of similar equipment types or facilities to simplify the permit issuance process for facilities; or
  • Synthetic Minor Permits - applies to a source that has the potential to emit pollutants in amounts that are at or above major source thresholds, but has voluntarily accepted emission limitations so that its potential to emit is less than those thresholds, thereby allowing the source to avoid more stringent major source requirements of the Clean Air Act, such as Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD), and Title V Operating Permit requirements. This option is available to different types of facilities, including those that emit hazardous air pollutants so that they will not be subject to Maximum Available Control Technology (MACT) standards for major sources.

The permit issuance process includes public notice and comment requirements, as well as administrative and judicial review provisions.

The final rule is located at 40 CFR 49.151. A fact sheet is available EPA's NSR Website.

Major NSR Permits

Non-attainment NSR Permits

NSR permitsThe NA NSR program can be found in Title 1, part D of the CAA, and the federal requirements for state NA NSR implementation plans are in 40 C.F.R. part 51, subpart I. The federal requirements for EPA to implement the NA NSR program in Indian country are in 40 C.F.R. part 49.


Tribal PSD Permits

The PSD program can be found in Title I, part C of the Clean Air Act (CAA). The federal requirements for state PSD implementation plans are found in 40 C.F.R. part 51, subpart I. The federal requirements for EPA to implement the program are in 40 C.F.R. part 52, subpart A, and 40 C.F.R. part 124.

In order to facilitate the PSD permitting process for regulated entities, EPA will accept the respective State permitting forms for application of a PSD permit in Indian Country

Note that a facility may be required to obtain both types of major NSR permits if it is located in an area that is in attainment for some of the pollutants it will emit but not for others.

Title V Implementation in Indian Country

Title V permits contain only existing federal and Tribal air quality requirements. Currently only the federal New Source Performance Standards, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, and Prevention of Significant Deterioration requirements apply to Title V sources in Indian Country. EPA plans to issue a rule which will establish the basic regulatory requirements. This rulemaking is called a federal implementation plan or "FIP". The Tribe may request that EPA include (or omit) various provisions in this FIP or include requirements that differ from existing state law. The Tribe may request that EPA not issue a FIP. The Tribe may write its own rules for EPA approval under the Tribal Authority Rules in addition to or in lieu of a FIP. EPA or the Tribe would then incorporate these requirements into the Title V permit.


Part 70 Air Operating Permits

Tribes may develop their own Title V air operating permit program and seek EPA approval of such program at any time now that the Tribal Authority Rule is finalized. Tribes may develop a Title V air operating permit program that includes a cooperative agreement with the State or Local air permitting authority.

Operating Permits Program

The Operating Permits Program can be found in Title V of the CAA. Title V operating permits are legally enforceable documents issued to stationary sources after the source has begun to operate. Sources whose emissions are greater than the established Title V permitting thresholds or who meet other applicable criteria are required to obtain an operating permit. The permits contain all the air pollution control requirements that apply to the source, including requirements from NSR permits, or other applicable requirements, such as New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) or National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP). EPA-issued title V permits are often called "Part 71" permits because the regulations that establish the standards for them are found in the Code of Federal Regulations at 40 C.F.R. part 71.

The Title V Operating Permits Program provides for public participation in the permitting process. The public generally has at least 30 days to comment on all draft Title V operating permits

OPERATING PERMITS (Title V)

Operating Permits (Title V) provides a State permit for facility operation. This program was introduced in the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 and currently applies to major sources only. The Title V permit contains all air requirements including those conditions required under the NSR program and the Toxics program in a single document. Because the Title V permit contains all applicable requirements for a facility, the document also contains applicable provisions found under the New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP). A Title V permit may also contain state only requirements specified by state/local regulations. As the operating permits program is implemented under state/local regulations, please refer to your State program for specific questions.

HAZARDOUS AIR POLLUTANTS (SECTION 112)


Air Toxics (Title III) specifies requirements found in NSR permits and operating permits regarding Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP). The HAP are 189 chemicals listed in the Clean Air Act as amended in 1990 at section 112(b). The regulations are found at 40 CFR 63 and address emissions on an industry specific basis. The standards listed at part 63 are called Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards. These standards are adopted by the State/Local program in a similar fashion as the NSPS. Specific questions may be answered in the standards listed at part 63 or through your state air permitting program.

REGULATION DEVELOPMENT

Regulation development includes the development and adoption of air permitting rules and regulations by the State and local air pollution control agencies to implement the NSR, title V, and air toxic permitting requirements. The state and local air pollution control agencies adopt these rules and regulations after holding public hearings and coordinating with the EPA Air Permitting Section to ensure that these rules meet applicable requirements in the Clean Air Act. Air Permitting reviews and comments on proposed permit regulations and either approves or disapproves final permit rules that the State adopts and submits to EPA. Air Permits also reviews and comments to headquarters on draft federal regulations pertaining to air permitting.
