Job Impact Statement 6 NYCRR Subpart 225-2 and Part 200

Nature of Impact

The Department is proposing to repeal Existing 6 NYCRR Part 225-2 Fuel Composition and Use - Waste Fuel (Existing Subpart 225-2) and replace it with Proposed 6 NYCRR Subpart 225-2, Fuel Composition and Use - Waste Oils (Proposed Subpart 225-2). Proposed Subpart 225-2 regulates the burning of waste oils in combustion, incineration, and process sources throughout New York State. Proposed Subpart 225-2 establishes applicability criteria, composition limits, and permitting requirements for waste oils; establishes monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements for facilities that are determined eligible to burn waste oil; and allows for the burning of waste oils in space heaters at automotive maintenance/service facilities. Also, as part of this rulemaking, the Department is adding the definition for "residual oil" to 6 NYCRR Part 200 (Part 200). If finalized, Proposed Subpart 225-2 will be included as a component of the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for New York State (NYS), as required by the Clean Air Act. These proposed changes to Subpart 225-2 are not anticipated to have an adverse impact on employment opportunities in the State.

Categories and Numbers of Jobs or Employment Opportunities Affected

Proposed Subpart 225-2 is meant to streamline regulations and is not placing any new substantive requirements on subject stationary sources. Therefore, Proposed Subpart 225-2 is not anticipated to have any short-term or long-term effects on the number of current jobs or future employment opportunities throughout New York State.

Regions of Adverse Impact

Proposed Subpart 225-2 is a statewide regulation. This regulation is not expected to have an adverse impact on jobs or employment opportunities in New York State. It does not impact any region or area of the state disproportionately in terms of jobs or employment opportunities.

Minimizing Adverse Impact

The Department does not expect any adverse impacts on jobs in New York State based on Proposed Subpart 225-2. Proposed Subpart 225-2 is a statewide regulation. Its requirements are the same for all facilities, and will not impact job opportunities in the State.

Self-Employment Opportunities

There are no anticipated affects on self-employment opportunities associated with Proposed Subpart 225-2.
