Assessment Topic

A standard of performance for the control of emissions of nitrogen oxides from new and modified lignite-fired steam generators is being proposed under the authority of Section 111 of the Clean Air Act. When standards of performance for large steam generators were promulgated under Subpart D of Part 60, lignite-fired units were exempted from the nitrogen oxides standard (the sulfur dioxide and particulate matter standards are applicable to lignite-firing) because of a lack of data on attainable levels of emission from such units. Since then, sufficient data has been obtained to propose a standard. This document contains the background information, environmental impact statement, and the rationale for the derivation of the proposed standard.
