LDEQ REGULATION – AQ347
 
Definition of “Title I Modification”
LAC 33:III.502
 
PROPOSED RULE – September 20, 2015
 
The proposed rule amends the definition of “Title I Modification” at LAC 33:III.502.A., and states:
 
Title I Modification—any physical change or change in the method of operation of a stationary source which increases the amount of any regulated air pollutant emitted or which results in the emission of any regulated air pollutant not previously emitted and which meets one or more of the following descriptions.
 
a.         The change will constitute a modification as described in 40 CFR 60.14 and therefore result in the applicability of a standard of performance for new stationary sources promulgated pursuant to section 111 of the Clean Air Act.
 
b.         The change will result in a significant net emissions increase under the prevention of significant deterioration (PSD) program, as defined in LAC 33:III.509.B.
 
c.         The change will result in a significant net emissions increase under the program for nonattainment new source review, as defined in LAC 33:III.504.
 
d.         The change will result in the applicability of a maximum achievable control technology (MACT) determination pursuant to regulations promulgated under section 112(g) (modifications, hazardous air pollutants) of the Clean Air Act.
 
LDEQ states that the proposed rule revision will clarify that “Title I Modifications,” in the context of Section III of the Clean Air Act, are limited to physical or operational changes to an existing facility.

LDEQ REGULATION - HW116ft
 
Revisions to Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Rule
LAC 33:V.4911 and 4915

PROPOSED RULE – September 20, 2015

LDEQ states that the proposed revisions are identical to the revisions made to the federal regulations at 79 FR 123. A new definition for “CRT Exporter” is added.
 
“CRT Exporter” - any person in the United States who initiates a transaction to send used CRTs outside the United States or its territories for recycling or reuse, or an intermediary in the United States arranging for such export.
 
The proposed rule sets forth applicable conditions for exports of used, broken CRTs. EPA must be notified in writing of an intended export 60 days before the CRTs are scheduled to leave the United States. This notification may cover export activities extending over a 12-month period. EPA will provide a complete notification to the receiving country and any transit countries and may ask the exporter to furnish any additional information which a receiving country requests in order to respond to a notification. The export of CRTs is prohibited unless the receiving country consents to the intended export. In addition, exporters must keep copies of notifications and acknowledgments of consent to export CRTs for a period of three (3) years following receipt of the acknowledgments and must file with EPA no later than March 1 of each year, an annual report summarizing the quantities (in kilograms), frequency of shipment, and ultimate destination(s) (i.e., the facility or facilities where the recycling occurs) of all used CRTs exported during the previous calendar year.
 
The proposed rule also sets forth applicable conditions for exports of used, intact CRTs for reuse. CRT exporters who export used, intact CRTs for reuse must send a written notification to EPA. This notification may cover export activities extending over a 12-month period. Exporters must keep copies of normal business records, such as contracts, demonstrating that each shipment of exported used, intact CRTs will be reused. This documentation must be retained for a period of at least three (3) years from the date the CRTs were exported.
