Major New Source Review (Rev. A13)
Action 3923
General Information
Action Summary Article 8 of 9VAC5 Chapter 80 (Permits for Stationary Sources) applies to the construction or reconstruction of new major stationary sources or major modifications to existing ones in prevention of significant deterioration (PSD) areas. The amendments revise the definition of "regulated NSR pollutant" to remove the term “particulate matter emissions” from the requirement to include the condensable particulate matter fraction. "Particulate matter emissions" refers to the non-criteria indicator for particulate matter (PM) that is regulated under new source performance standards (NSPSs). EPA has determined that only PM10 and PM2.5 may include condensable PM, unless a specific NSPS or applicable implementation plan otherwise requires the condensable portion to be included.
