The TCEQ updated Qualified Changes Under Senate Bill 1126 Section 116.116(e) Guidance and PI-E Form and associated instructions. The updates clarify which “qualified” facilities may make physical and operational revisions without being required to obtain a permit amendment by including certain criteria to allow a facility to obtain a no net increase in allowable emissions.
To obtain a no net increase in allowable emissions of any air contaminant or new air contaminant, the TCEQ will account for the facility’s
- Addition of any air pollution control method applied to the qualified facility.
- Consider decreases in allowable emissions from other qualified facilities that have received a preconstruction permit or permit amendment no earlier than 120 months before the change will occur.
- Consider any decrease in actual emissions from other qualified facilities at the same commission air quality account that are not included in the provision stated above.
Please refer to the Qualified Changes Under Senate Bill 1126 Section 116.116(e) Guidance Document for more information regarding this update.
