Area Source Boilers

40 CFR 63, Subpart JJJJJJ, National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Area Sources:  Industrial, Commercial and Institutional Boilers (Area Source Boiler NESHAP) Reference Materials

EPA proposed the Area Source Boiler NESHAP on June 4, 2010, which establishes the date after which a source that commenced construction or reconstruction is considered to be new (rather than existing).  Fuel switching after June 4, 2010, constitutes a change significant enough to trigger new source status for the boiler.  May 20, 2011 is the effective date of the rule.  Please be aware this rule is currently under reconsideration.
