Final Agency Action To Issue a Prevention of Significant Deterioration Non-Applicability Determination for the AltAir Renewable Fuels Project
This notice announces that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a final agency action for a Clean Air Act Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) Non-Applicability Determination to AltAir Paramount, LLC (``AltAir''), for its Renewable Fuels Project in California's South Coast Air Basin. AltAir plans to convert the remainder of the existing Paramount Crude Oil Refinery into a renewable fuels facility. As part of this Renewable Fuels Project, existing equipment will be re-used and re-purposed, new equipment will be installed, unneeded equipment will be eliminated or permanently idled, and project upgrades to existing equipment will be made to improve efficiencies and reduce operational emissions. In its Non-Applicability Determination, the EPA determined that the Renewable Fuels Project will not result in a major PSD modification.
