EPA to revise GHG permitting limits, will focus on larger sources

U.S. EPA has revised its plans for regulating greenhouse gases to focus on larger emission sources than originally proposed, Administrator Lisa Jackson said today. The revisions will affect a "tailoring" rule that initially proposed requiring emission permits for facilities that emit more than 25,000 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent a year -- raising the thresholds from 100 or 250 tons that trigger permitting requirements for so-called conventional pollutants. The final threshold will be larger still, Jackson told reporters after a hearing with Senate appropriators.
