On January 2, 2011, GHG emissions from the largest stationary sources were included in the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) and Title V Operating Permit Programs. These permitting programs were prudent vehicles for reducing GHG emissions. However, the thresholds in the Clean Air Act for determining whether a source is subject to these permitting programs--100 and 250 tons/year of emissions--were based on traditional pollutants. They were not intended to be applied to GHGs. This recorded webinar provides an overview of the GHG Permitting Guidance, issued by EPA in November 2010 (and updated in March 2011). The webinar provides the basic knowledge permit writers need to address GHG emissions in permits.
