Title: Petition to Delist Stationary Combustion Turbines From the List of Categories of Major Sources of Hazardous Air Pollutants 
Abstract:

The Clean Air Act (CAA) requires EPA to regulate substances listed as hazardous air pollutants (HAP) under CAA section 112(c). CAA section 112(c)(9) requires EPA to consider petitions to add or remove source categories. EPA reviews a petition to determine whether it provides adequate data and can be determined complete. If EPA decides that information is not adequate, the Administrator may use any authority available to them to acquire such information. Once the petition is determined complete, EPA must, within 12 months, either grant or deny the petition. On August 28, 2019, EPA received a petition to remove the Stationary Combustion Turbines source category from the list of categories of major sources. On November 19, 2019, EPA received a supplement to the petition. The EPA is currently evaluating the petition for completeness and plans to issue a notice once the petition is determined to be complete. In the second notice, the EPA will notify the petitioners and the public of its determination of whether the petition will be granted (a proposed rulemaking) or denied.
