SUMMARY: This regulation specifies who must obtain an air emission license, what standards and criteria must be complied with and what information an applicant must submit. The rule implements New Source Review (NSR) requirements of the Clean Air Act (CAA) and Section 590 of Title 38 Maine Revised Statutes Annotated for those minor sources that require a license and those major sources that are undergoing changes subject to NSR under the CAA. For minor sources this rule serves both as an operating licensing program as well as the pre-construction New Source Review Program. For major sources the rule serves as a pre-construction New Source Review Program while Chapter 140 implements the operating licensing requirements of 40 CFR Part 70. The pre-construction licenses issued for major sources under Chapter 115 will not expire and will be incorporated into the Chapter 140 licenses. The requirements of this Chapter regarding application pre-filing requirements and public notice requirements for applications and draft licenses supersede Chapter 2 of the Department's Regulations, where applicable. It contains extensive information on a wide variety of variables in the licensing process as specified in the following sections:
