omb -- Federal EPA webinar on proposed changes to its Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engine rule

Posted: 24 Apr 2012 08:44:35
This two-part webinar provides an overview of EPA's regulations
for stationary reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICE),
and an update on potential revisions. 

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Webinars:
EPA's Air Quality Regulations for Stationary Reciprocating
Internal Combustion Engines (RICE) and Proposed Rule
Reconsideration

Dates:	Thursday, June 14, 2012, and Wednesday, June 20, 2012
Time, both dates:	1:00-3:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (10:00
a.m.-12:30 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time)

This two-part webinar provides an overview of EPA's regulations
for stationary reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICE),
and an update on potential revisions.  RICE are used to produce
electric power, pump water, and operate compressors.  Those
familiar with the rules can hear about potential rule revisions
by joining the second part. The same agenda is offered on both
dates.  Under this rule, facilities with stationary emergency
engines will need to track their use to avoid exceeding annual
hourly limits on non-emergency use. Some non-emergency stationary
engines will be subject to emission limits (which may require
retrofit), stack testing requirements, and the need to submit
initial notifications that were due in August 2010 for
compression ignition (diesel) engines and February 2011 for spark
ignition (gasoline and gas-fired) engines.  These requirements
may apply to you!  For more information go to
http://epa.gov/region1/rice/.

Part 1: 1:00-2:00 p.m. 

Melanie King of the US EPA's Office of Air Quality Planning and
Standards, the RICE rule writer, will provide an overview of
EPA's National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants
(NESHAP) and New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for
stationary RICE.  She will cover the applicability of the rules,
emission standards, and other compliance requirements. 

Part 2: 2:00-3:30 p.m.  

Melanie King will discuss changes to the RICE NESHAP and NSPS
that EPA expects to propose by May 22, 2012 in response to
petitions for reconsideration of the RICE NESHAP.  Roy Crystal of
EPA Region 1 (New England),  Heather Valdez of EPA Region 10
(Pacific Northwest), and Alexis North of EPA Region 8 (Rocky
Mountain region) will explore compliance issues for key sectors
including sand and gravel mining, oil and gas production, and
electric power production, and in rural Alaska.  They will also
present tools for compliance.  The webinar will include questions
and answers.
