Lower Limits On Sulfur In Heating Oil, Permit Fees, Volkswagen Settlement On Feb. 8 DEP Air Quality Technical Advisory Committee Agenda

The DEP Air Quality Technical Advisory Committee is scheduled to meet February 8 on a variety of issues including increasing permit fees, lowering the sulfur limit for heating oil and the General Permits related to oil and gas production methane emissions.
Also on the agenda is an update on the EPA Volkswagen Settlement Program and how Pennsylvania is proposing to spend its share of the funds.
On sulfur limits, DEP is proposing to lower the sulfur limit in heating oil sold in Pennsylvania from 500 ppm to 15 ppm to conform to the limits of many surrounding states.  The compliance date of the proposed rule is July 1, 2019.
There will also be a general update on rulemakings related to State Air Quality Implementation Plan revisions and a discussion of the final regulation setting emissions standards for cleaning solvents.
The meeting will be held in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson Building in Harrisburg starting at 9:15.
