 AGA Comments on EPA Proposed Hazardous Air Pollutant Standards for RICE Engines (June 3, 2009) 

On June 3, 2009 AGA submitted comments to EPA on EPA’s National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines (RICE) Proposed Rule, published in the Federal Register on March 5, 2009 (74 Fed. Reg. 9698). These comments note AGA supports the detailed technical comments filed in this docket of the Interstate
Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA). We also support the comments filed by our member company Southwest Gas Corporation. AGA submits these comments to highlight issues of particular concern to our members. In particular, we agree with INGAA and Southwest Gas that the record for the proposed rule focuses mainly on diesel engines, and it contains very limited and questionable data to support the standards proposed for natural gas-fired engines. We urge EPA to negotiate an alternate rulemaking schedule for natural gas-fired engines, to enable the gathering and analysis of pertinent data, and ensure the promulgation of standards that will in fact achieve the required reduction in hazardous air pollutants.
