Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Proposed rule.

SUMMARY:

The EPA is proposing to approve revisions to volatile organic compound (VOC) requirements for Eli Lilly and Company (Eli Lilly). This facility is in Marion County, Indiana. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) submitted a Commissioner's Order requesting the revision on February 11, 2004 as an amendment to the Indiana State Implementation Plan (SIP).

Eli Lilly operates a synthesized pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Marion County. This SIP revision covers new and existing sources in Eli Lilly's Building 110 pilot plant. Eli Lilly is seeking an exemption from 326 Indiana Administrative Code (IAC) 8-5-3, control requirements for synthesized pharmaceutical manufacturing, under the site-specific reasonably available control technology (RACT) rule, 326 IAC 8-1-5. Eli Lilly is seeking this exemption for reactors, filters, centrifuges, and vacuum dryers. Other Building 110 sources such as air dryers, in-process tanks, and storage tanks comply with 326 IAC 8-5-3. The total VOC annual emissions from Building 110 are limited to less than 10 tons per year (TPY).

DATES:

The EPA must receive written comments by December 8, 2004.

I. What Actions Are the EPA Taking Today?

EPA is proposing to approve revisions to VOC requirements for the Eli Lilly pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Marion County, Indiana. The revisions include an exemption from the control requirements of 326 IAC 8-5-3 for reactors, centrifuges, filters, and vacuum dryers in Building 110, the pilot plant for Eli Lilly. This exemption can be approved under Indiana's site-specific RACT rule, 326 IAC 8-1-5. Another revision is that Eli Lilly can now add research and development equipment to Building 110 without a new SIP revision. Eli Lilly will follow the appropriate RACT plan for any new equipment and keep the total annual VOC limit for Building 110 to less than 10 TPY.
