Clean Air Act Advisory Committee (CAAAC)

Air Permitting Streamlining Techniques and Approaches for Greenhouse Gases, 2012

CAAAC Greenhouse Gas Permit Streamlining Workgroup, Final Report

September 14, 2012 - This final report presents potential GHG permit streamlining options and observations developed by the Clean Air Act Advisory Committee (CAAAC): Permits, New Source Review and Toxics Subcommittee GHG Permit Streamlining Workgroup. In April 2012, the EPA convened what we call the GHG Permit Streamlining Workgroup to explore potential streamlining approaches that may make the administration of the CAA permitting programs more efficient for permitting authorities, and that may potentially reduce the permitting burden for smaller GHG-emitting sources if the programs are expanded to apply to these sources.
