Preferred Project Period:
5/10/10 - 8/20/10

Desired Education Level(s):

Project Title:
Greenhouse Gas Permitting for Nontraditional Emissions Sources

Sponsoring Office:
Office of Air and Radiation, Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards, Air Quality Policy Division, Operating Permits Group

Project Overview:
A variety of sources emit greenhouse gases, including large power plants and many smaller sources that burn fossil fuels for energy. In the event that Congress enacts legislation, or separate authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions is used, sources of greenhouse gas emissions - some of which have not traditionally been subject to regulation - may be required to obtain air pollution permits. Under this project, the fellow will research and characterize affected sources that emit greenhouse gases and review outreach materials that provide information for state and local permit agencies and nontraditional emissions sources on obtaining pollution permits for greenhouse gas emissions.

Project Goals:
The fellow will gain critical insight into sources of greenhouse gas emissions and the U.S. air pollution permit system.

Final Product of the Project:
The fellow will develop a final report and make presentations summarizing the results of completed activities to EPA staff and management, as well as others, as appropriate.

Project Location:
EPA Headquarters, Research Triangle Park, NC
