Controlling Emissions from Ground Support Equipment (Withdrawn)

Information and links to documents about the regulation to control emissions from airport ground support equipment.

The regulation on airport ground support equipment was an enforceable control strategy under Texas’ State Implementation Plan (SIP). The regulation has since been repealed and replaced with individual agreements. This page provides information and downloadable documents about this repealed control strategy.


Background

Area(s) affected: HGB, DFW

Expiration/End date: None

Applicability Period: Year-round

Source type: Off-road Mobile Source

Emission(s) targeted: Nitrogen Oxides (NOx)

Rule/Citation: N/A

Description: This control strategy required owners and operators of airport ground support equipment to ensure that their ground support equipment fleet is powered either by electricity or by other low-emission technologies.

In December 2000, this rule was withdrawn in the Houston-Galveston-Brazoria (HGB) area and replaced by agreements with Continental Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and the City of Houston, making local ozone precursor emission reductions of nitrogen oxide (NOx) from sources at the Houston Airport System federally enforceable.

On May 23, 2001, the TCEQ repealed the airport ground support equipment rule for the Dallas–Fort Worth (DFW) area because agreements were signed with the area’s major airlines, airports, and governmental entities to achieve the same NOx reductions as would have been achieved by the rule.
