Transportation of Fuel Cell or Fuel Cell Components Containing Hazardous Materials A variety of types of stationary fuel cells appear to be under development containing different electrolytes. Depending on the type of fuel cell, PHMSA may regulate it under the Federal Hazardous Materials Transportation Law, 49 U.S.C. 5101 et seq. and HMR, 49 CFR parts 171–180, when the fuel cell or fuel cell component is in transportation in commerce to the site. PHMSA would only regulate a fuel cell or fuel cell component in transportation if it contains a material identified in the Hazardous Materials Table (49 CFR 172.101) or meeting the definition of a hazardous material in 49 CFR part 173. Electrolytes used to carry electrically charged particles from one electrode to another within a fuel cell include materials such as potassium hydroxide, sodium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, phosphoric acid, calcium oxide, and zirconium oxide. Several of these—potassium hydroxide, phosphoric acid, and calcium oxide— are listed as hazardous materials in the Hazardous Materials Table and would be subject to the applicable requirements of the HMR, including packaging requirements. The HMR provide exceptions from packaging and labeling requirements for limited quantities of certain hazardous materials meeting specified criteria. For units or components too large to be packaged in accordance with the HMR, or for which there is an alternative method of packaging not provided for in the HMR, the offer may apply to PHMSA for a special permit. (49 CFR 107.105) III. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) regulatory authority with respect to stationary fuel cells depends on whether the owner or operator of stationary fuel cells is a public utility, i.e., a person that sells electric energy at wholesale in interstate commerce (a person that sells electric energy for resale). If the owner or operator is a public utility, the rates, terms and conditions of such sale are subject to the authority of the FERC pursuant to Parts II and III of the Federal Power Act, 16 U.S.C. 824, et seq. IV. Environmental Protection Agency The extent to which particular stationary fuel cells are regulated VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:29 Jan 04, 2007 Jkt 211001 directly by EPA under the Clean Air Act can usually be determined by whether they are part of a source category (like boilers or process heaters) that is covered by a New Source Performance Standard (40 CFR part 60), National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants (40 CFR part 63) or a New Source Review Regulation (40 CFR parts 51 and 52). Smaller stationary fuel cells may also be regulated as consumer or commercial products under Clean Air Act section 183(e), 42 U.S.C. 7511b(e). 5.0 General Comments on State and Local Jurisdiction The regulatory role in a hydrogen economy for state and local jurisdictions includes, but is not limited to, health and safety regulations of local building codes and safety codes applicable to the use and generation of hydrogen, many aspects of hydrogen fueling stations including tank and infrastructure installation and maintenance for hydrogen fueling operations, the design and structure of parking garages and any other infrastructure regulated by local governments and state governments.
