P2 in Permitting Project

Organization(s) Northeast Waste Management Officials' Association
Project Description NEWMOA is collaborating with the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM) on a Pollution Prevention in Permitting Program (P4). The purpose of this project is to facilitate the development of flexible, P2-oriented Title 5 air permits at manufacturing facilities in the region. The P4 effort in the Northeast is part of a national EPA reinvention program focused on air permitting.

P4 permits are designed to replace pipe by pipe permits by creating a single permitted cap on VOC, Hazardous Air Pollutant, and other emissions at a facility. The permit provides increased flexibility to the facility because they can make changes in their manufacturing process without having to apply for a permit modification as long as the changes do not result in an exceedance of their emissions cap and have been anticipated in their P4 permit. The permits create an incentive for P2, particularly for facilities that are interested in expanding their operations. As of Winter 2000, CT DEP had been working on a P4 permit for the past few years for Cytec, and hoped to issue the permit by the end of 2000.

NEWMOA and NESCAUM have formed a P4 Workgroup that has been meeting to develop a clear understanding of the project and to begin to identify possible P4 facilities. The project is currently doing outreach to permit writers and to potential manufacturers in the region.
