The proposed rulemaking implements House Bill (HB) 788, 83rd Legislature, 2013, which requires that the commission adopt rules for the authorization of emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), to the extent required under federal law. The proposed rules revise the applicability of Chapters 116 and 122 so that major sources of GHGs will be subject to federal New Source Review and Federal Operating Permit requirements. The proposed rulemaking also specifies that GHG permit applications are not subject to a contested case hearing. In addition, the proposed rules establish that accounts with GHG emissions which meet or exceed Prevention of Significant Deterioration major source levels are subject to emissions inventory requirements. The proposed rules establish that emissions of GHGs have no reportable quantity (RQ). The proposed rules also address a rulemaking petition from 3M Company to establish an RQ of 5,000 pounds for C6 Fluoroketone, a fire protection fluid.
