Boiler MACT Technical Assistance Program Details. DOE began the Boiler MACT technical assistance program in February 2012 . with a pilot program in partnership with the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio to provide site-specific techni-cal and cost information to the more than 50 facilities in Ohio affected by Boiler MACT. DOE used the results and
Heater MACT Rule on Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Boiler and Process Heater Operators August 2010 Page 8 Introduction In June 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed new Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards for industrial boilers and process heaters, which would
The Boiler MACT rule requires owners of industrial and commercial boilers to invest in emissions control technologies that comply with EPA's standards for air pollutants, including mercury.

Subpart DDDDD), also known as the "Industrial Boiler MACT", is a complex set of emission standards and compliance requirements based on the application of maximum achievable control technology (MACT).

MACT, which was not readily available to the public during the comment period for the Boiler MACT rule, demonstrate the significant adverse impact on calculated MACT floor levels of EPA's inconsistent decisions with respect to determining the performance level achieved by the "best performing units."

The No Action Assurance expires on December 31, 2012 for the Major and Area Source Boiler MACT requirements (after an extension for the Area Source Boiler MACT) and on April 30, 2013 for the CISWI rule requirements, or upon promulgation of final rules addressing the proposed reconsiderations, whichever comes first.
AGA Comments on Major Source Boiler MACT Proposed Rule (Feb. 21, 2012) Policy February 24, 2012 On Feb. 21, 2012, AGA filed comments on EPA's proposed revisions to the hazardous air pollutant standards for industrial and commercial boilers and process heaters.

EPA Issues Final Adjustments to "Boiler MACT" Hazardous Air Emissions Rules January 9, 2013 . On December 20, 2012, EPA issued final "adjustments" to its rules regulating emissions of hazardous air pollutants from industrial, commercial and institutional boilers and process heaters at major and non-major (known as "area") source
Along with its proposed industrial boiler MACT reconsideration rule, EPA has also proposed various revisions and clarifications for the three other related rules, including the "area source" industrial boiler MACT (which applies to boilers at smaller facilities), MACT rules for incinerators that burn solid waste, and a rule to re-define the
On December 2, 2011, EPA proposed its fourth round of regulations governing industrial boilers and process heaters (i.e. the boiler MACT standards). [EPA Notice] Although additional changes are unlikely (given that this is EPA's fourth set of revisions), EPA is providing a 60-day comment period and does not expect to finalize the regulations
The industrial boiler MACT is a complex rule with a variety of compliance options. As a first step in addressing the rule, sources must decide whether to demonstrate compliance using a fuel-based or stack emission-based approach or the alternative "health-based" compliance option.

EPA's Boiler Reconsideration Rules. Under CAA section 112, EPA must issue MACT standards for major sources of hazardous air pollutants (i.e., those sources with potential emissions of any single hazardous air pollutant of at least 10 tons per year or emissions of combined hazardous air pollutants of at least 25 tons per year).
What is Boiler MACT? Boiler MACT is the EPA's National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants as they relate to industrial, commercial and institutional boilers. They do not apply to residential boilers and hot water heaters. The "Boiler MACT Rule" was issued in January 2013 and since then many facilities have sought to come into
