GENERAL PROVISIONS


§ 128.1. Procedure for submission of alternative emission reduction plans.

 (a)  The Department may accept proposals from air contamination source owners or operators to implement an alternative emission reduction option for existing sources known as the ‘‘bubble’’ policy. General guidelines for proposing the plans are contained in the Environmental Protection Agency’s policy statement of December 11, 1979, at 44 FR 71, 780 (1979).

 (b)  Proposals by source owners and operators for an alternative emission reduction option shall be submitted in a plan approval application issued by the Department for the purpose. Approval of an alternative emission reduction plan will be incorporated in a revised permit to operate in accordance with the requirements of Chapter 127, Subchapter A (relating to general), and alternative emission requirements will be specified in this chapter.

 (c)  Regulatory changes in accordance with the act are necessary before the plan may be approved and the plan will be submitted as a revision to the applicable State implementation plan in accordance with the Clean Air Act. Under section 7 of the act (35 P. S. §  4007), the Department has been authorized to publish notice of proposed rulemaking and conduct public hearings concerning each alternative emission reduction option.

§ 128.2. Adoption of alternative emission reduction option standards.

 (a)  The owner or operator of an air contamination source which seeks an alternative emission reduction option shall submit a plan approval application under Chapter 127, Subchapter A (relating to general).

 (b)  The Department will make an initial determination concerning each plan application, and, if approvable, the Department will propose the amendments to regulations necessary to implement the alternative emission reduction plan for each source to the Environmental Quality Board.

 (c)  The Department is authorized to publish notice to the public of the time and place of a public hearing concerning the proposal for alternative emission reduction option. The notice will include a summary of the proposal and the text of amendments to the provisions of this part necessary to implement the alternative emission reduction option. The notice will be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin as notice of proposed rulemaking in accordance with section 201 of the act of July 31, 1968 (P. L. 769, No. 240) (45 P. S. §  1201) and will be published by public advertisement in a newspaper of general circulation in the region where the source is located. Both notices will be published at least 30 days prior to the scheduled date of the public hearing.

 (d)  The Department is authorized to conduct public hearings and receive comments in accordance with section 7 of the act (35 P. S. §  4007).
