Reminder: Area Source Boiler MACT Notifications are Past Due!

Posted: October 6th, 2014

Authors: Christina L. 

It has been quite some time since the Area Source Boiler MACT Notifications of Compliance Status (NOCS) were due on July 19, 2014, and even longer since the initial notifications were due on January 20, 2014.  Hopefully your facility’s initial notification and NOCS are already in the hands of your state agency and U.S. EPA regional office.  If not, don’t panic, but we recommend that you submit them as soon as possible.  We suspect that many facilities out there, such as universities, hotels, medical centers, municipal buildings, processing facilities, or mining facilities, might not know they are subject to the Area Source Boiler MACT rule, not to mention the notification requirements.  Recall that most coal-, oil-, or biomass-fired area source boilers were required to have had an initial tune-up and one-time energy assessment conducted by the March 21, 2014 compliance date.  On the flip side of the coin, some area source facilities who may have been proactive in completing their boiler tune-ups early may now find that the deadline for their next tune-up has already passed!

Although these regulatory deadlines have passed, you can still get up to speed.  Be sure to check out ALL4’s webinar to determine the applicability of the Area Source Boiler MACT to your facility.  Still have questions? ALL4 would be happy to assist you in evaluating your facility’s Area Source Boiler MACT applicability.  Feel free to contact me at 610.933.5246 x135 (cgiannascoli@all4inc.com) or Lindsey Kroos at 610.933.5246 x122 (lkroos@all4inc.com) for more information.
