Ozone Transport Commission approves recommendation for additional control measures under Clean Air Act
On June 2, 2020, the Ozone Transport Commission approved a
recommendation for additional control measures that will be submitted to
the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under Clean Air Act Section
184(c). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the action was taken without a
meeting under Article X of the Commission’s bylaws.
The Commission is recommending that the U.S. EPA require Pennsylvania to
revise the Pennsylvania State Implementation Plan to include additional
control measures which would establish daily nitrogen oxides (NOx)
emission limits for all coal-fired electric generating units (EGUs) with already
installed Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) or Selective Non Catalytic
Reduction (SNCR) control technology to ensure that these technologies are
optimized to minimize NOx emissions each day of the ozone season.
