Readily Available Permit: Tanks and Loading Increases

This New Source Review (NSR) amendment action authorizes an increase of throughput for tanks and/or loading at an existing site. The existing equipment must already be authorized by a New Source Review permit.

Sources included in this RAP are storage tanks, loading (drum, tote, truck, and rail), and control devices (flare, vapor combustion unit, and carbon absorption system).

The application workbook contains step-by-step instructions, specific qualifying criteria, and technical information including emission calculations, the Best Available Control Technology, an impacts evaluation, and the draft Special Conditions.

If you cannot meet the qualifying criteria or do not agree with the technical representations in the workbook, you will receive notice that the application has been voided and you should seek a different type of authorization as appropriate. Refer to Types of New Source Review Authorizations.
