Under the decree, Apache will perform a computer-simulated air flow study for a nitric acid production unit called ‘‘AOP–4’’ to determine, at a minimum, the feasibility of Selective Catalytic Reduction as a control technology. The results of the study will be submitted to Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (‘‘ADEQ’’), the permitting authority under the Arizona SIP, and ADEQ will make a Best Available Control Technology determination and issue an appropriate permit based on its finding.

The original Consent Decree was entered on May 7, 2015, and resolved civil claims under the Clean Air Act at the Defendant’s three carbon black manufacturing facilities located in Oklahoma, Alabama, and Texas. The Consent Decree imposed various pollution control requirements on Defendant’s facilities, including requirements related to sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and particulate matter VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:14 Dec 27, 2017 emissions. At the Ponca City facility in Oklahoma and the Phenix City facility in Alabama, these pollution control requirements included, among other requirements, installation of Dry Gas Scrubber or Wet Gas Scrubber (‘‘DGS’’ or ‘‘WGS’’) systems designed to reduce sulfur dioxide emissions, and Selective Catalytic Reduction (‘‘SCR’’) systems to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions. The sulfur dioxide reduction systems are also expected to result in an ancillary reduction in particulate matter emissions. The parties have now agreed to modify certain Consent Decree deadlines.

Orion Engineered Carbons, LLC (W.D. La.), Civil Action No. 6:17–cv–01660. In this civil enforcement action under the federal Clean Air Act (‘‘Act’’), the United States and the State of Louisiana allege that Orion Engineered Carbons, LLC (‘‘Defendant’’), failed to comply with certain requirements of the Act intended to protect air quality at four carbon black manufacturing facilities in Franklin, Louisiana, Borger, Texas, Orange, Texas, and Belpre, Ohio. The complaint seeks injunctive relief and civil penalties for violations of the Act’s Prevention of Significant Deterioration provisions, 42 U.S.C. 7470–92, the Act’s Nonattainment New Source Review provisions, 42 U.S.C. 7501–7515, the Act’s Title V permit provisions and certain operating permit requirements, 42 U.S.C. 7661a–76661f, and various Clean Air Act implementing regulations. The complaint alleges that Defendant failed to obtain appropriate permits and failed to install and operate required pollution control devices to reduce emissions of sulfur dioxide (‘‘SO2’’), nitrogen oxides (‘‘NOX’’), and/or particulate matter (‘‘PM’’) at its four carbon black facilities. The proposed Consent Decree would resolve violations for certain provisions of the Act at the four facilities, and would require the Defendant to reduce harmful SO2, NOX, and PM emissions through the installation and operation of pollution controls. The Defendant will also spend $550,000 to fund environmental mitigation projects that will further reduce emissions and benefit communities adversely affected by the pollution from the facilities, and pay a civil penalty of $800,000.

(``AAC''), which has been approved by the Environmental Protection 
Agency (``EPA'') under Section 110 of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 
7410, and for allegedly violating a federal standard of performance for 
new sources (``NSPS'') for nitric acid plants (40 CFR part 60, subpart 
G) promulgated under Section 111 of the Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7411.
    Under the decree, Apache will perform a computer-simulated air flow 
study for a nitric acid production unit called ``AOP-4'' to determine,
