Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) II Hearings

The Reasonably Available Control Technology (RACT) standards were created to satisfy the 2008 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ozone. The NAAQS are established by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as the maximum concentrations in the atmosphere for specific air contaminants to protect public health and welfare. The RACT requirements apply statewide to the owner or operator of any major Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) emitting facility, any major Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) emitting facility or both when the installation/modification of the source(s) occurred before July 20, 2012.

The facilities listed below are seeking approval from EPA for their proposed revised State Implementation Plan (SIP).
