SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CAA affords EPA a 45-day period to review, and object, as appropriate, to a title V operating permit proposed by a state permitting authority. Section 505(b)(2) of the CAA authorizes any person to petition the EPA Administrator, within 60 days after the expiration of this review period, to object to a title V operating permit if EPA has not done so. PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Petitions must be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the public comment period provided by the state, unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise these issues during the comment period or unless the grounds for the issue arose after this period. EPA received three petitions from the Petitioners, dated June 25, 2010, May 3, 2011, and October 3, 2012, to object to operating permits issued to Consolidated Environmental Management, Inc.—Nucor Steel Louisiana relating to a facility located near Convent, Saint James Parish, Louisiana. The 2010 Petition requested that the Administrator object to a Nucor operating permit (Permit Number 2560– 00281–V0) on the basis that: (1) The permit fails to apply the appropriate maximum achievable control technology (MACT) standards; (2) the modeling submitted by Nucor to support its PSD analysis is flawed, and (3) the title V permit fails to incorporate conditions sufficient to assure compliance with PSD. The 2011 Petition requested that the Administrator object to two Nucor operating permits (Permit Numbers 2560–00281–V1 and 3086–V0) on the following bases: (1) LDEQ failed to aggregate PSD permitting for emissions from the entire facility (this issue is also known as ‘‘Specific Objection I’’ in this matter); (2) the modified pig iron permit fails to apply MACT standards for the topgas boilers; (3) LDEQ failed to include emission limits for particulate matter less than 2.5 microns; (4) the limit for natural gas consumption is not the best available control technology for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) process; and (5) the DRI permits must specify procedures estimating GHG emissions. The 2012 Petition requested that the Administrator object to the Nucor operating permits for the reasons expressed in the 2010 and 2011 Petitions, which were incorporated by reference and attached to the 2012 Petition. On June 19, 2013, the Administrator issued a partial Order denying Specific Objection I of the 2011 Petition and as re-raised in the 2012 Petition. On January 30, 2014, the Administrator issued an Order partially granting and partially denying the 2010, 2011, and 2012 Petitions, (except Specific Objection I). These Orders explain the reasons behind EPA’s conclusion to grant in part and deny in part these three petitions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CAA affords EPA a 45-day period to 
review, and object, as appropriate, to a title V operating permit 
proposed by a state permitting authority. Section 505(b)(2) of the CAA 
authorizes any person to petition the EPA Administrator, within 60 days 
after the expiration of this review period, to object to a title V 
operating permit if EPA has not done so. Petitions must be based only 
on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable 
specificity during the public comment period provided by the state, 
unless the petitioner demonstrates that it was impracticable to raise 
these issues during the comment period or unless the grounds for the 
issue arose after this period.
    EPA received three petitions from the Petitioners, dated June 25, 
2010, May 3, 2011, and October 3, 2012, to object to operating permits 
issued to Consolidated Environmental Management, Inc.--Nucor Steel 
Louisiana relating to a facility located near Convent, Saint James 
Parish, Louisiana.
    The 2010 Petition requested that the Administrator object to a 
Nucor operating permit (Permit Number 2560-00281-V0) on the basis that: 
(1) The permit fails to apply the appropriate maximum achievable 
control technology (MACT) standards; (2) the modeling submitted by 
Nucor to support its PSD analysis is flawed, and (3) the title V permit 
fails to incorporate conditions sufficient to assure compliance with 
PSD. The 2011 Petition requested that the Administrator object to two 
Nucor operating permits (Permit Numbers 2560-00281-V1 and 3086-V0) on 
the following bases: (1) LDEQ failed to aggregate PSD permitting for 
emissions from the entire facility (this issue is also known as 
``Specific Objection I'' in this matter); (2) the modified pig iron 
permit fails to apply MACT standards for the topgas boilers; (3) LDEQ 
failed to include emission limits for particulate matter less than 2.5 
microns; (4) the limit for natural gas consumption is not the best 
available control technology for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from 
the Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) process; and (5) the DRI permits must 
specify procedures estimating GHG emissions. The 2012 Petition 
requested that the Administrator object to the Nucor operating permits 
for the reasons expressed in the 2010 and 2011 Petitions, which were 
incorporated by reference and attached to the 2012 Petition.
    On June 19, 2013, the Administrator issued a partial Order denying 
Specific Objection I of the 2011 Petition and as re-raised in the 2012 
Petition. On January 30, 2014, the Administrator issued an Order 
partially granting and partially denying the 2010, 2011, and 2012 
Petitions, (except Specific Objection I). These Orders explain the 
reasons behind EPA's conclusion to grant in part and deny in part these 
three petitions. Together, the June 19, 2013 Order and January 30, 2014 
Order

address all the objections originally raised in the 2010 Petition and 
the 2011 Petition, which were all re-raised in the 2012 Petition, as 
well as addressing the claims in the 2012 Petition.
