A National Overview of PSD Permitting for Greenhouse Gas Emissions & BACT Determinations

Monday, March 3, 2014 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Since 2011, the Clean Air Act’s Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) program has applied to greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from new major sources and major modifications at existing sources that meet specified GHG emission thresholds. What constitutes the “Best Available Control Technology” (“BACT”) for GHG emissions in these permitting decisions is a state and project specific decision.  Geoff Goode will provide an overview of PSD GHG permitting decisions across the country, both by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and by states, including the range of BACT determinations.  The presentation will also touch on the scope of EPA comments on PSD GHG permits and the issues most commonly addressed in comments by environmental nonprofit organizations.
