Document Description
NOTE: Review per lead SCAQMD staff is proposing amendments to Regulation SS - Regional Clean Air Incentives Market (RECLAIM), Rule 2002 - Allocations for Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and Oxides of Sulfur (Sox), to reduce the allowable Sox emission limits based on current Best Available Retrofit Control Technology (BARCT) for the following industrial equipment and processes: 1) petroleum coke calciners; 2) cement kilns; 3) coal-fired boiler (cogeneration); 4) container glass melting furnace; 5) diesel combustion 6) fluid catalytic cracking units; 7) refinery boilers/heaters; 8) sulfur recovery units/tail gas treatment units; and 9) sulfuric acid manufacturing. Additional amendments are proposed to establish procedures and criteria for reducing RECLAIM Trading Credits (RTCs) and RTC adjustment factors for year 2013 and later. Other minor changes are proposed for clarity and consistency throughout the regulation. The Initial Study identified the topics of aesthetics, air quality, energy, hydrology and water quality, hazards and hazardous materials, and transportation/traffic as areas in the Draft Program Environmental Assessment (PEA) has shown the only the topics of air quality and hydrology (water demand) exceed the SCAQMD's significance thresholds associated with implementing the proposed project.
