EPA Sets Greenhouse Gases Permitting Requirements for Major Sources

US EPA has announced the timing for major sources of greenhouse gases to revise their permits, or to obtain new permits under the new greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting and permitting regulations. The first stationary sources will be required to get Clean Air Act permits that cover greenhouse gases in January, 2011. EPA is trying to balance what it sees as its mandate to protect Americans’ health and welfare, and to provide time for large industrial facilities and state governments to put in place cost-effective, innovative technologies to control and reduce carbon pollution. The permitting requirements will be effective on January 2, 2011.
