EPA/AR RIN: 2060-AQ29 Publication ID: Spring 2011 
Title: Stationary Combustion Turbine NSPS Amendments to Address UARG Reconsideration Petition 
Abstract: EPA is proposing to amend specific provisions in the NSPS for stationary combustion turbines to resolve issues and questions raised by the utility air regulatory group (UARG) on the original final rulemaking published on July 6, 2006 (71 FR 38482), and to address other technical and editorial issues that have been identified since promulgation. The primary issues raised in the petition include the NOx standard and the monitoring and reporting requirements for owners/operators that elect to install NOx CEMS. This proposed rule would also amend the location and wording of existing paragraphs to clarify the requirements of the NSPS. It would also exempt owners/operators of stationary combustion turbines that meet the applicability criteria of and that are complying with the SO2 standard in either subparts J or Ja (standards of performance for petroleum refineries) or only burn fuels containing inherently low amounts of sulfur from complying with the otherwise applicable SO2 limit in subpart KKKK. In addition, we are requesting comment on how to address combustion turbine engines that are overhauled or refurbished off site in such a manner that neither the owner, operator, or manufacturer can identify which components have been replaced and, therefore, cannot conduct the otherwise required reconstruction analysis. Also, in recognition that the ultra-low sulfur diesel requirements include Hawaii, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands we are intending and requesting comment on requiring owner/operators of turbines in these locations to the meet the same sulfur requirements as owner/operators of turbines located in State territories. Finally, we are proposing to require electronic reporting of performance tests.
