Document Description
The Bay Area Air Quality Management District is proposing two new rules: Proposed Regulation 12, Rule 15: Petroleum Refining Emissions Tracking (Rule 12-15) and Proposed Regulation 12, Rule 16: Petroleum Refining Emissions Analysis, Thresholds and Mitigation (Rule 12-16). Rule 12-15 is being proposed to put in place requirements to enhance the tracking of refinery emissions, determine crude composition over time, require development of emissions inventory, require additional air monitoring, and requiring refineries to update Health Risk Assessments utilizing the latest methodology and health effects data. Rule 12-16 would use emissions information gathered under Rule 12-15 to establish trigger level emissions thresholds, require casual analysis if those emissions thresholds are exceeded, prepare enforceable Emission Reduction Plans to reduce air emissions, and conduct an audit if planned reductions are not sufficient to bring emissions back below trigger threshold levels.
