The NYSDEC Proposes to Lower Particulate Matter Limits for Combustion Sources

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) is proposing to repeal and replace 6 NYCRR Subpart 227-1, Stationary Combustion Installations, as well as attendant provisions under Part 200, General Provisions. The revisions to Subpart 227-1 include lowering PM emission limits for existing and new stationary combustion installations that either predate, or are not subject to, a federal new source performance standard (NSPS) and/or national emissions standard for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP). These revisions will also correct minor typographical errors and update the regulation to incorporate changes to the air permitting regulations that have occurred over the past 20 years. In addition, the Department is revising Part 200 to incorporate by reference the applicable federal rule provisions.

Following adoption, Subpart 227-1 will be submitted to EPA as a revision to the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for New York State.
