Volkswagen Settlement

 

Oklahoma has been initially allocated approximately $21 million dollars from the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust Agreement to be used towards reducing nitrogen oxide emissions from the transportation sector. DEQ has been designated as lead agency for the administration of these funds.

On December 5, 2017 DEQ conducted a public meeting to collect information from stakeholders and receive comments concerning the BMP. The Department will refer to received comments as a resource in the development of the BMP. This comment period is now closed. After the BMP has been written, it will be made available on this website, and there will be another opportunity for public comment. For information on the trust agreement, funding-eligible projects, presentation slides from the December 5 meeting, and more, visit our VW page. Updated December 7, 2017

Oklahoma Clean Diesel Grants

 

DEQ is soliciting proposals for projects that reduce emissions from and improve fuel efficiency of diesel engines. $566,018 of grant money is available through this EPA-sponsored program.

Potential projects include verified idle reduction technologies and the replacement of diesel vehicles and buses throughout Oklahoma. Eligible vehicles may include school buses, municipal fleet vehicles (city buses, refuse vehicles, etc.), and some commercial transportation vehicles. The grant funds will be for the purchase and installation of verified idle reduction technologies, EPA- or CARB-certified vehicle replacements, and/or all-electric vehicle replacements.

While projects from the entire state will be accepted, special consideration will be given to projects in counties that are in potential non-attainment of NAAQS, counties with toxic air pollutant concerns as identified from NATA data, and counties containing Federal Class I areas. Priority will be given to projects that will result in a decrease in emissions from school buses.

Please take a look at the Request for Proposal (RFP), application materials, and more info on the Oklahoma Clean Diesel web page. The application deadline is January 19, 2018. Updated November 15, 2017

E-Permitting for Air Quality Permits



 

Our new online permitting system is live. The following materials provide an overview of creating individual accounts for the system, creating and tracking permit applications, and optimizing your experience.

This guidance will show you the types of applications available online, how to upload supplemental materials, how to interact with the assigned engineer, and how to streamline using previous online submissions. If you need assistance, please call (405) 702-4100 and ask for E-Permitting help. Updated February 8, 2017

 

 

Permit By Rule for Emergency Engine Facilities

 

Effective September 15, 2016, a newly-promulgated Permit by Rule (PBR) is available OAC 252:100-7-60.6 for facilities that must obtain a permit because of installation of an emergency engine that is subject to a federal standard. Use new Form #100-224 to register under the PBR. Updated September 14, 2016

 

 

Revisions to Test Methods, Performance Specifications, and Testing Regulations for Air Emission Sources

 

Final Rule Signed August 5, 2016: The final "revisions" rule allows source owners and operators of stationary spark ignition internal combustion engines to continue to use Methods 18 and 320 and ASTM D6348-03 to measure VOC but requires reporting of all QA/QC data. See Subpart JJJJ, Section 60.4245(d) and Table 2.

    For Method 18, results from Sections 8.4 and 11.1.1.4 must be reported.

    For Method 320, results from Sections 8.6.2, 9.0, and 13.0 must be reported.

    For ASTM D6348-03, results of all QA/QC procedures in Annexes 1-7 must be reported.

In the preamble to the final "revisions" rule, EPA states that it will revisit the above decision and make a subsequent determination of the appropriateness of the use of Method 320 and/or ASTM D6348 during the first risk and technology review evaluation for stationary spark ignition internal combustion engines. Updated August 30, 2016
