arbcombo -- Subject line: inuseag—Proposed Regulation for State Implementation Plan Credit from Mobile Agricultural Equipment Workshop—July 9, 2013 in

Posted: 01 Jul 2013 16:01:24
The California Air Resources Board (ARB or Board) is pleased to
invite you to participate in the third public workshop to discuss
the development of the Proposed Regulation for State
Implementation Plan Credit from Mobile Agricultural Equipment
(this regulation was previously referred to as In-Use
Self-Propelled Off-Road Mobile Agricultural Equipment Regulation
or Mobile Ag Regulation).  ARB’s proposed regulation will provide
a mechanism to ensure that incentive-funded mobile agricultural
equipment projects implemented using Carl Moyer Program
guidelines and administered by San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution
Control District (SJVAPCD) result in emission reductions that are
eligible for State Implementation Plan (SIP) credit.  This
proposed regulation would also allow an opt-in for any other air
district in California that complies with the requirements of the
proposed regulation to have mobile agricultural equipment
emission reductions that result from incentive programs be
eligible to be considered for SIP credit.  To meet U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency requirements for SIP
creditability, the emission reductions must be surplus,
quantifiable, enforceable, and permanent.  The proposed
regulation is intended to complement SJVAPCD’s proposed Rule 9610
which provides administrative requirements on local, state, and
federal voluntary incentive programs in the San Joaquin Valley to
ensure that emission reductions will be eligible to receive SIP

The proposed regulation requires that the mobile agricultural
equipment incentive projects follow the Carl Moyer Program
guidelines.   To ensure accountability, ongoing program reviews
and audits by the SJVAPCD will be required to verify project
data, application information, emission reductions, destruction
verification, and retention of application, inspection,
destruction, and other project-related documentation consistent
with the Carl Moyer Program guidelines.  This proposed regulation
will be presented for Board consideration in October 2013.

The workshop will be held at the following date and time:

In the 2007 8-hour Ozone SIP, ARB committed to developing a
measure to reduce emissions from in-use self-propelled off-road
mobile agricultural equipment.  ARB staff’s proposed approach for
ensuring the emission reduction goals and commitments of the 2007
SIP are met is to take this proposed regulation to the Board in
October 2013.
