Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead SCAQMD staff is proposing amendments to Regulation XX - Regional Clean Air Incentives Market (RECLAIM), Rule 2002 - Allocations for Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and Oxide of Sulfur (SOx), to reduce the allowable NOx emission limits based on current Best Available Retrofit Control Technology (BARCT) to achieve additional NOx emission reductions for the following industrial equipment and processes: 1) fluid catalytic cracking units (FCCUs); 2) refinery boilers and heaters; 3) refinery gas turbines; 4) sulfur recovery units - tail gas treatment units (SRU/TGUs); 5) non-refinery/non-power plant gas turbines; 6) non-refinery sodium silicate furnaces; 7) non-refinery/non-power plant internal combustion engines (ICEs); 8) container glass melting furnaces; 9) coke calcining; 10) Portland cement kilns; and, 11) metal heat treating furnaces. Additional amendments are proposed to establish procedures and criteria for reducing NOx RECLAIM Trading Credits (RTCs) and NOx RTC adjustment factors for year 2016 and later. For clarity and consistency throughout the regulation, other minor changes are proposed to: 1) Rule 2011 Appendix A - Protocol for Monitoring, Reporting, and Recordkeeping Oxides of Sulfur (SOx) Emissions, and, 2) Rule 2012 Appendix A - Protocol for Monitoring, Reporting, and Recordkeeping Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) Emissions.
