Proposed Rule 1118.1 Control of Emissions from Non-Refinery Flares
Document Type
EA - Environmental Assessment
Document Description
Note: Draft EA (equivalent to a Draft Neg Dec) Proposed Rule 1118.1 seeks to reduce oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and volatile organic compounds emissions from flaring activities at landfills, wastewater treatment plants, oil and gas production facilities, organic liquid loading stations, and tank farms and to encourage alternatives to flaring. PR 1118.1 establishes emission limits that reflect Best Available Retrofit Control Technology standards for flares and provides an exemption for low-use and low-emitting flares. PR 1118.1 also establishes a capacity threshold, based on a flare's max rated capacity, to identify flares that would need to be replaced or undergo a flare gas throughout reduction (e.g., use gas beneficially). Additionally, PR 1118.1 establishes requirements for facilities to conduct periodic source tests, monitor and record gas usage, and submit reports. PR 1118.1 is estimated to reduce 0.2 ton per day of NOx. The Draft EA did not result in the identification of any environmental topic areas that would be significantly adversely affected by PR 1118.1. One of the facilities affected by PR 1118.1 was identified on lists compiled by DTSC.
