Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving state implementation plan (SIP) revisions submitted by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (Pennsylvania). The revisions pertain to a demonstration that Philadelphia County (Philadelphia) meets the requirements for reasonably available control technology (RACT) of the Clean Air Act (CAA) for nitrogen oxides (NOX) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) as ozone precursors for the 1997 8-hour ozone national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS). In this rulemaking action, EPA is approving three separate SIP revisions addressing RACT under the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS for Philadelphia; approving portions of two previously submitted RACT SIP revisions, which EPA had found deficient and conditionally approved; and converting the prior conditional approval of the Philadelphia RACT demonstration for the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS to full approval. EPA is approving these revisions to the Pennsylvania SIP addressing 1997 8-hour ozone RACT for Philadelphia in accordance with the requirements of the CAA.

DATES:

This final rule is effective on November 7, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

On June 15, 2016 (81 FR 38992), EPA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPR) for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In the NPR, EPA proposed approval of five revisions to the Pennsylvania SIP to satisfy the RACT requirements for the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS for Philadelphia. The formal SIP revisions were submitted by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP), on behalf of Philadelphia Air Management Services (AMS), on September 29, 2006, June 22, 2010, June 27, 2014, February 18, 2015, and April 26, 2016.

Pursuant to section 110(k)(4) of the CAA, on December 13, 2013 (78 FR 75902), EPA conditionally approved the Philadelphia 1997 8-hour ozone RACT demonstration, as provided in the 2006 and 2010 SIP revisions, with the condition that PADEP, on behalf of AMS, submitted additional SIP revisions addressing the source-specific RACT requirements for major sources of NOX and/or VOC in Philadelphia under the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS. EPA had identified two deficiencies in the 1997 8-hour ozone Philadelphia RACT demonstration, as provided in the 2006 SIP revision and the 2010 SIP revision, which precluded EPA's approval. These deficiencies relied on Pennsylvania's NOX SIP Call SIP provisions to address RACT for electric generating units (EGUs),[1 2] which cannot meet RACT based on a 2009 decision from the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (D.C. Circuit);[3] and not sufficiently addressing source-specific RACT requirements for certain major sources of NOX and VOC under the Pennsylvania SIP approved regulation in 25 Pa Code sections 129.91-92. Altogether, the RACT SIP revisions submitted to EPA on June 27, 2014, February 18, 2015, and April 26, 2016 are intended to fulfill the conditions in EPA's December 13, 2013 conditional approval. This rulemaking action addresses all five SIP revisions concerning Philadelphia RACT requirements under the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS.[4]

II. Summary of SIP Revisions

On September 29, 2006, PADEP submitted, on behalf of AMS, a SIP revision purporting to address the RACT requirements for Philadelphia under the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS. The 2006 SIP revision consisted of a RACT demonstration for Philadelphia, including a certification that previously adopted RACT regulations approved by EPA in Pennsylvania's SIP under the 1-hour ozone NAAQS continue to represent RACT for the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS implementation purposes; and a negative declaration that certain VOC source categories that would be covered by Control Technique Guideline (CTG) documents [5] do not exist in Philadelphia. The 2006 SIP revision also included federally enforceable permits that represented RACT control for four major VOC sources, but these particular requirements were later addressed by the 2010 SIP revision, thus superseding this portion of the 2006 SIP revision.[6]

Another SIP revision addressing RACT requirements for certain VOC source categories covered by CTGs in Philadelphia was submitted by PADEP, on behalf of AMS, on June 22, 2010. The 2010 SIP revision consisted of two new CTG regulations, Air Management Regulation (AMR) V section XV (“Control of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) from Marine Vessel Coating Operations”) and AMR V section XVI (“Synthetic Organic Manufacturing Industry (SOCMI) Air Oxidation, Distillation, and Reactor Processes”), and related amendments to AMR V Section I (“Definitions”), as adopted by AMS on April 26, 2010, effective upon adoption. The 2010 SIP revision also included a negative declaration for the CTG source category of natural gas and gasoline processing plants.

On June 27, 2014, February 18, 2015, and April 26, 2016, PADEP submitted to EPA, on behalf of AMS, three separate SIP revisions pertaining to the Philadelphia 1997 8-hour ozone RACT demonstration to fulfill the conditions in EPA's December 13, 2013 conditional approval. The three latest RACT SIP revisions include a RACT evaluation for each major source of NOX and/or VOC in Philadelphia.

AMS evaluated a total of 25 major NOX and/or VOC sources in Philadelphia for 1997 8-hour ozone RACT, from which 16 major sources were subject to Pennsylvania's source-specific RACT requirements in 25 Pa Code 129.91-92. The new or additional controls or the revised existing controls resulting from the source-specific RACT determinations were specified as requirements in new or revised federally enforceable permits (RACT permits) issued by AMS for each source. These RACT permits are included as part of the Philadelphia RACT SIP revisions for EPA's approval in the Pennsylvania SIP under 40 CFR 52.2020(d)(1), and are specified in Table 1.

a Grays Ferry Cogeneration, Veolia Schuylkill, and Veolia Energy Efficiency are treated as a single major source after the 1-hour RACT determination was issued. AMS submitted RACT documentation for each facility separately, although considering RACT applicability as a single major source of NOX.

As part of the source-specific RACT determinations, AMS also certified for certain emissions units at major sources subject to previously approved source-specific RACT determinations, that the existing RACT controls approved under the 1-hour ozone NAAQS continued to represent RACT for the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS. Furthermore, AMS addressed another 27 NOX and/or VOC sources in Philadelphia that were previously subject to source-specific RACT determinations for the 1-hour ozone NAAQS in the Pennsylvania SIP, by certifying that these sources are no longer subject to RACT for purposes of the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS because they are either no longer major sources of NOX and/or VOC or have shutdown. AMS requested to remove from the SIP source-specific RACT determinations approved under the 1-hour ozone NAAQS, as codified in 40 CFR 52.2020(d)(1), for 18 sources that have shutdown, as listed in Table 2.

On April 26, 2016, PADEP submitted a letter, on behalf of AMS, withdrawing from the 2006 SIP revision the certification of the Pennsylvania rules related to the NOX SIP Call as 19978-hour ozone RACT, specifically 25 Pa Code sections 145.1-145.100, 25 Pa Code sections 145.111-145.113, and 25 Pa Code sections 145.141-144. In the letter, PADEP reaffirms that AMS is no longer relying on the SIP approved provisions related to the NOX SIP Call as 1997 8-hour ozone RACT for any sources in Philadelphia.

III. EPA's Rationale for Final Action

After review and evaluation, EPA determined that AMS provided adequate documentation in the September 29, 2006, June 22, 2010, June 27, 2014, February 18, 2015 and April 26, 2016 Philadelphia RACT SIP revisions to support that RACT has been met for all major sources of NOX and/or VOC in Philadelphia, including sources subject to source-specific RACT determinations, in accordance with the Start Printed Page 69690Phase 2 Ozone Implementation Rule and latest available information.[7] EPA finds that the June 27, 2014, February 18, 2015, and April 26, 2016 SIP revisions satisfy the December 15, 2013 conditional approval, and thus adequately correct the deficiencies in the Philadelphia RACT demonstration EPA identified from reviewing the 2006 and 2010 SIP revisions. EPA also determined that the certified and recently adopted NOX and VOC regulations and the negative declarations included in the September 29, 2006 and June 22, 2010 SIP revisions, with exception of the withdrawn portions of the 2006 SIP revision, meet all other remaining CAA RACT requirements under the 19978-hour ozone NAAQS for Philadelphia. For further discussion on EPA's rationale for its final rulemaking action are explained in the NPR and in the technical support document (TSD), both available in the docket for this rulemaking action, and thus will not be restated here. No public comments were received on the NPR.

IV. Final Action

In this final rulemaking action, EPA determines that the Philadelphia 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS RACT demonstration, included within the September 29, 2006, June 22, 2010, June 27, 2014, February 18, 2015, and April 26, 2016 SIP revisions, satisfies all applicable RACT requirements under the CAA for Philadelphia for the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS. EPA is taking various actions on the revisions to the Pennsylvania SIP addressing Philadelphia 1997 8-hour ozone RACT. EPA is approving as RACT under the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS for Philadelphia the certified and recently adopted NOX and VOC regulations and CTG negative declarations included in the September 29, 2006 and June 22, 2010 SIP revisions, with exception of the portions of the 2006 SIP submittal that were withdrawn by PADEP on April 26, 2016. Specifically, EPA is finalizing approval of the CTG RACT requirements in AMR V sections I, XV, and XVI, as amended or adopted in April 26, 2010 and effective upon adoption. EPA is approving as RACT under the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS for Philadelphia the source-specific RACT determinations provided in the June 27, 2014, February 18, 2015, and April 26, 2016 SIP revisions. EPA is also removing the conditional nature of the December 13, 2013 conditional approval and granting full approval to the Philadelphia 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS RACT demonstration, based on EPA's determination that the June 27, 2014, February 18, 2015, and April 26, 2016 RACT SIP revisions satisfy the conditions established in its conditional approval.

V. Incorporation by Reference

In this rule, EPA is finalizing regulatory text that includes incorporation by reference. In accordance with requirements of 1 CFR 51.5, EPA is finalizing the incorporation by reference of source-specific RACT determinations under the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS for certain major sources of NOX and VOC emissions and Philadelphia CTG RACT regulations of AMR V sections I, XV, and XVI, as amended or adopted in April 26, 2010 and effective upon adoption. Therefore, these materials have been approved by EPA for inclusion in the SIP, have been incorporated by reference by EPA into that plan, are fully federally enforceable under sections 110 and 113 of the CAA as of the effective date of the final rulemaking of EPA's approval, and will be incorporated by reference by the Director of the Federal Register in the next update to the SIP compilation. 62 FR 27968 (May 22, 1997). EPA has made, and will continue to make, these materials generally available through http://www.regulations.gov and/or at the EPA Region III Office (please contact the person identified in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this preamble for more information).

VI. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

A. General Requirements

Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP submission that complies with the provisions of the CAA and applicable federal regulations. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR 52.02(a). Thus, in reviewing SIP submissions, EPA's role is to approve state choices, provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. Accordingly, this action merely approves state law as meeting federal requirements and does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by state law. For that reason, this action:

  • Is not a “significant regulatory action” subject to review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Orders 12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993) and 13563 (76 FR 3821, January 21, 2011);
  • Does not impose an information collection burden under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.);
  • Is certified as not having a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.);
  • Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4);
  • Does not have federalism implications as specified in Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999);
  • Is not an economically significant regulatory action based on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 19885, April 23, 1997);
  • Is not a significant regulatory action subject to Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001);
  • Is not subject to requirements of section 12(d) of the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent with the CAA; and
  • Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).

In addition, this rule does not have tribal implications as specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000), because the SIP is not approved to apply in Indian country located in the state, and EPA notes that it will not impose substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal law.

B. Submission to Congress and the Comptroller General

The Congressional Review Act, 5 U.S.C. 801 et seq., as added by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996, generally provides that before a rule may take effect, the agency promulgating the rule must submit a rule report, which includes a copy of the rule, to each House of the Congress and to the Comptroller General of the United States. EPA will submit a report containing this action and other required information to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Comptroller General of the United States prior to publication of the rule in the Federal Register. A major rule cannot take effect until 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register. This action is not a “major rule” as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).Start Printed Page 69691

In addition, section 804 exempts from section 801 the following types of rules: Rules of particular applicability; rules relating to agency management or personnel; and rules of agency organization, procedure, or practice that do not substantially affect the rights or obligations of non-agency parties. 5 U.S.C. 804(3). Because a portion of this rule is a rule of particular applicability, EPA is not required to submit a rule report regarding the portion of this action which is of particular applicability under section 801, but will submit the remainder of the rule.

C. Petitions for Judicial Review

Under section 307(b)(1) of the CAA, petitions for judicial review of this action must be filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the appropriate circuit by December 6, 2016. Filing a petition for reconsideration by the Administrator of this final rule does not affect the finality of this action for the purposes of judicial review nor does it extend the time within which a petition for judicial review may be filed, and shall not postpone the effectiveness of such rule or action. This action approving the Philadelphia RACT requirements under the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS may not be challenged later in proceedings to enforce its requirements. (See section 307(b)(2)).
