DEC is revising Part 226 Solvent Metal Cleaning Processes and attendant changes to Part 201 to establish lower VOC limits to cold cleaning solvents and remove the stipulation that they only apply to the cleaning of metal. It will also be re-designated Subpart 226-1 to accommodate the addition of a new rule, Subpart 226-2 Industrial Cleaning Solvents, which establishes VOC content limits for cleaning solvents used in operations not covered by other regulations.

DEC is revising Part 208 Landfill Gas Collection and Control Systems for Certain Municipal Solid Waste Landfills, and attendant revisions to Part 200 General Provisions, to incorporate the new federal EG for MSW Landfills codified under 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart Cf. The new federal EG is designed to reduce emissions of landfill gas containing non-methane organic compounds and methane by lowering the emission threshold at which a landfill must install and operate a landfill gas collection and control system. Once this proposal is adopted, DEC is required to revise its State Plan to reflect the new EG and submit the State Plan to EPA for review and approval.

Hearings for the proposed rule and attendant revisions to existing rules described above will be held as follows and are scheduled in places that are reasonably accessible to persons with impaired mobility.
