Volatile Organic Compounds Rule Revision and Stage II Vapor Recovery

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Direct final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Under the Federal Clean Air Act (CAA or the Act) the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is approving the revisions 
submitted by the State of Louisiana controlling emissions of volatile 
organic compounds (VOCs) and changes to the Stage II gasoline vapor 
recovery rule as part of the Louisiana State Implementation Plan (SIP).

DATES: This rule is effective on May 22, 2017 without further notice, 
unless the EPA receives relevant adverse comment by April 24, 2017. If 
the EPA receives such comment, the EPA will publish a timely withdrawal 
in the Federal Register informing the public that this rule will not 
take effect.

I. Background

A. CAA and SIPs

    Section 110 of the CAA requires states to develop and submit to the 
EPA a SIP to ensure that state air quality meets National Ambient Air 
Quality Standards (NAAQS). The NAAQS currently address six criteria 
pollutants: carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, lead, particulate 
matter, and sulfur dioxide. Each federally-approved SIP protects air 
quality primarily by addressing air pollution at its point of origin 
through air pollution regulations and control strategies. The EPA-
approved SIP provisions and control strategies are federally 
enforceable. States revise the SIP as needed and submit revisions to 
the EPA for review and approval.

B. Why do we regulate VOCs?

    Volatile Organic Compound is a term used to describe a class of 
chemicals that react in the atmosphere in the presence of sunlight to 
form ozone. Sources include vehicle exhaust, gasoline vapors, oil-based 
paints and industrial operations. A regulatory definition of Volatile 
Organic Compounds can be found at 40 CFR 51.100(s). The definition in 
Louisiana can be found in LAC 33:III, Chapter 1, section 111. Oxygen in 
the atmosphere reacts with VOCs and Oxides of Nitrogen to form ozone, a 
key component of urban smog. Inhaling even low levels of ozone can 
trigger a variety of health problems including chest pains, coughing, 
nausea, throat irritation, and congestion. It also can worsen 
bronchitis and asthma. Exposure to ozone can also reduce lung capacity 
in healthy adults.

C. Louisiana Submittals

    On July 5, 2011, the EPA approved numerous revisions\1\ to the 
Louisiana SIP, which spanned the years 1996 to 2006. The EPA is now 
approving two additional SIP revisions. First, on August 29, 2013, the 
State of Louisiana through the Louisiana Department of Environmental 
Quality (LDEQ) submitted the VOC Rule revisions, which incorporated 
revisions to the LAC during the years 2008 through 2010. These VOC 
revisions included changes to the Stage II vapor recovery rules. 
Second, on November 3, 2014, the State of Louisiana submitted the 
Permit Rule revisions that integrated revisions to the LAC during the 
years 2011 through 2013.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See 76 FR 38977
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

II. The EPA's Evaluation

    As detailed in the Technical Support Document (TSD) accompanying 
this action, the LDEQ submitted SIP revisions to the VOC regulations 
found in LAC 33:III, chapters 1, 21, 22 and 25 which are addressed in 
this action.
    The August 29, 2013 Volatile Organic Compounds Rule Revisions 
promulgated during 2008-2010. LAC 33:III chapters 1: Section 111, 21: 
Sections 2103, 2107, 2108, 2121, 2125, 2131, 2132, 2145, 2147, 22: 
Section 2201 and 25: Sections 2511, 2521, 2531 are addressed in this 
approval. The revision to section 523 was addressed previously (81 FR 
51342).
    The November 3, 2014 Permit Rule SIP Revisions were promulgated 
during 2011-2013. LAC 33:III chapter 21: Section 2132 is addressed in 
this approval. The submittal also included revisions to regulations in 
LAC 33:III chapters 2, 3, 5, and 6 but those revisions will not be 
acted upon here. The chapter 2 revisions were withdrawn in a chapter 2 
``repeal and replace'' submission dated February 23, 2016. Revisions to 
chapter 5, sections 525, 527 and 529 were withdrawn by Louisiana on 
July 14, 2016. Revisions to sections 317 and 319 will be addressed at a 
later date. The remaining sections have been addressed in a separate 
Federal Register document (81 FR 51341).
    Please refer to Table 1 for a list of subchapters, divisions, and 
key sections proposed for revision in the Louisiana SIP by the LDEQ.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The revisions to sections 111, 2121, 2125, 2131, 2145, 2147 and 
2201 are all limited to outline/numbering changes and wording 
corrections. These revisions are ministerial in nature and are 
approvable.
    The revisions to sections 2107, 2108, 2511, 2521 and 2531 concern 
notifications to the department and due dates for reporting. These 
changes improve the enforceability of the regulations and are 
therefore, approvable.
Section 2132: Stage II Vapor Recovery
    The revisions to section 2132 include numbering/outline and wording 
corrections as well as provide a Stage II vapor recovery exemption for 
facilities that exclusively fuel or refuel vehicles with onboard 
refueling vapor recovery (ORVR). The Louisiana SIP requires Stage II 
vapor recovery at gasoline dispensing facilities in Ascension, East 
Baton Rouge, Iberville, Livingston, Pointe Coupee, and West Baton Rouge 
parishes. Background information on Stage II vapor recovery is provided 
in the TSD. The submitted revision would provide an exemption from 
Stage II vapor recovery requirements for facilities used exclusively 
for the initial fueling and/or refueling of vehicles equipped with 
onboard refueling vapor recovery (ORVR) equipment. The exact wording of 
the revision is: ``Exemption. Any segregated motor vehicle fuel 
dispensing system used exclusively for the fueling and/or refueling of 
vehicles equipped with onboard refueling vapor recovery equipment 
(e.g., initial fueling of new vehicles at automobile assembly plants, 
refueling of rental cars at rental car facilities, and refueling of 
flexible fuel vehicles at E85 dispensing pumps), located at a facility 
subject to this regulation, is exempt from the requirements in 
Paragraphs B.5 and 6 of this Section.'' This submitted rule means that 
no facility fueling/refueling vehicles that are not 100% ORVR is 
covered by the rule. While LDEQ is not asking to remove Stage II 
requirements for these parishes it does revise the Stage II 
requirements for a certain portion of the fleet.
    Under CAA section 110(l), Stage II vapor recovery programs cannot 
be revised or removed unless it is demonstrated that revision or 
removal of such program from the SIP would not interfere with any 
applicable requirement concerning attainment and reasonable further 
progress or any other applicable requirement under the CAA. While 
Louisiana's submittal is not requesting the withdrawal of its Stage II 
rule for these parishes, this SIP revision is requesting revisions to 
Louisiana's Stage II requirements, and thus this revision must be shown 
to satisfy 110(l) of the CAA.
    This SIP revision is approvable because all the vehicles whose 
initial fueling and refueling is being excluded from Stage II vapor 
recovery rules are equipped with ORVR, an equivalent vapor recovery 
system. In order for a system to constitute Stage II and ORVR, the 
systems must demonstrate a 95 percent or greater VOC control 
efficiency; thus, there will be no increase in emissions as a result of 
this SIP revision. During the phase-in of ORVR controls, which began in 
1997, Stage II vapor recovery has provided VOC reductions in ozone 
nonattainment

[[Page 14825]]

areas and certain attainment areas of the OTR. Congress recognized that 
ORVR and Stage II would eventually become largely redundant 
technologies, and provided authority to the EPA to allow states to 
remove Stage II from their SIPs after EPA finds that ORVR is in 
widespread use.
    Not only are there no increases in VOC emissions from this rule, 
but the parishes are in attainment of the 1-hour, 1997, and 2008 ozone 
standards. On March 26, 2009, EPA proposed a determination of 
attainment of the 1-hour ozone standard for the BR area comprised of 
the Ascension, East Baton Rouge, Iberville, Livingston, and West Baton 
Rouge parishes. A final determination was published in the Federal 
Register on February 10, 2010 (75 FR 6570). On June 25, 2010, EPA 
proposed a determination of attainment of the 1997 8-Hour Ozone 
standard for the BR area (75 FR 36316). A final determination was 
published in the Federal Register on September 9, 2010 (75 FR 54778). 
EPA proposed to redesignate the BR area to attainment on August 30, 
2011 (76 FR 53852) and published approval of the redesignation to 
attainment of the 1997 8-hour ozone NAAQS on November 11, 2011 (76 FR 
74000). On November 4, 2016, we proposed to redesignate the BR area to 
attainment for the 2008 8-hour ozone NAAQS (81 FR 76891) and we 
finalized the redesignation to attainment on December 27, 2016 (81 FR 
95051). Under the 1990 CAA Amendments, Pointe Coupee Parish was 
included as part of the BR nonattainment area, and continued to be 
designated nonattainment for the 1-hour ozone NAAQS by operation of 
law. EPA approved Louisiana's request to remove Pointe Coupee from the 
BR area and redesignated Pointe Coupee Parish to attainment for the 1-
hour ozone standard on January 6, 1997 (62 FR 648). Pointe Coupee 
Parish was designated as unclassifiable/attainment for the 1997 ozone 
standard on April 30, 2004, and designated as unclassifiable/attainment 
for the 2008 ozone standard on May 21, 2012 (77 FR 30088).
    The rule does not increase VOC emissions, it does not apply to 
facilities fueling/refueling vehicles with less than 100% ORVR, and all 
the affected parishes are in attainment for the 1-hour, 1997, and 2008 
ozone standards; therefore, we find that these revisions will not 
interfere with any applicable requirement concerning attainment and 
reasonable further progress or any other applicable requirement under 
the CAA.
    This revision is consistent with our guidance memo dated December 
12, 2006,\2\ and EPA's action in other similar situations. See 71 FR 
52464 (approving removal of Stage II vapor recovery systems at Ford's 
Chicago Assembly Plant); and 75 FR 74624 (approving exemption of 
facilities used exclusively to fuel/refuel ORVR equipped vehicles in 
Georgia); 78 FR 58884 (approving exemption of Enterprise rental car 
facility in Kentucky).

    \2\ ``Removal of Stage II Vapor Recovery in Situations Where 
Widespread Use of Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery is 
Demonstrated,'' Memorandum from Stephen D. Page and Margo Tsirigotis 
Oge, December 12, 2006.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The ORVR systems are considered to be as efficient as Stage II 
vapor recovery equipment in reducing emissions from fueling and 
refueling. In relevant part, the Page Memorandum states that if a SIP 
revision demonstrates that 95 percent of the new vehicles fueled at an 
automobile assembly plant are equipped with ORVR, and that this level 
of ORVR use would not decrease, then EPA can determine that widespread 
use of ORVR has been achieved for the fleet of motor vehicles that are 
fueled at that facility. Page Memorandum, page 2. The CAA allows EPA to 
revise or waive the Section 182(b)(3) Stage II gasoline vapor recovery 
rules, after determining ORVR emissions control systems are in 
widespread use throughout the motor vehicle fleet. Louisiana revised 
its Stage II vapor recovery rule to exclude initial fueling and 
refueling of motor vehicles 100% equipped with ORVR.
    Under Louisiana's changes, the only facilities excluded from Stage 
II vapor recovery rules are those which fuel/refuel 100% vehicles that 
are equipped with ORVR. Because only facilities that fuel/refuel 100% 
ORVR equipped vehicles are subject to Louisiana's rule changes, the 
criteria for widespread use for this fleet of vehicles is achieved. 
Furthermore, EPA made the determination on May 16, 2012 that there was 
widespread use throughout the country (77 FR 28772). A detailed 
discussion of this guidance and the 100(l) demonstration is provided in 
the TSD. A copy of this memo is included in the docket. This revision 
is approvable.
Section 2103: Storage of Volatile Organic Compounds
    The submitted revisions to section 2103 provide an exemption from 
the ``submerged fill pipe'' provisions for a limited number of tanks at 
a specific facility. These tanks contain a highly corrosive material 
and the submerged fill pipe must be higher than 6 inches from the 
bottom of the tank for safety considerations. Please see our detailed 
evaluation and the RACT determination beginning on page 5 of the TSD. 
The filling of these tanks represents a very low volume of VOC 
emissions due to the presence of vapor loss control devices and will 
not have a significant effect or interfere with maintenance or 
attainment of any NAAQS.\3\

    \3\ On May 4, 2016, EPA published a final rule entitled 
``Determinations of Attainment by the Attainment Date, Extensions of 
the Attainment Date, and Reclassification of Several Areas 
Classified as Marginal for the 2008 Ozone National Ambient Air 
Quality Standards'' where the Agency determined that the BRNA had 
attained the 2008 8-hour ozone NAAQS, by the applicable attainment 
date of July 20, 2015, based on 2012-2014 monitoring data. See 81 FR 
26697.

    A complete summary is referenced in the Technical Support Document 
(TSD), ``Louisiana Administrative Code (LAC) Title 33 Environmental 
Quality Part III--Air,'' a copy of which is posted in the docket of 
this action.

III. Final Action

    We are approving rule revisions to LAC 33:III for chapters 1, 21, 
22 and 25 for the 2008-2010 VOC Rule revisions submittal and chapter 21 
for the 2011-2013 Permit Rule revisions submittal into the Louisiana 
SIP as they appear in Table 1 above.
    The EPA is publishing this rule without prior proposal because we 
view this as a non-controversial amendment and anticipate no adverse 
comments. However, in the proposed rules section of this Federal 
Register publication, we are publishing a separate document that will 
serve as the proposal to approve the SIP revision if relevant adverse 
comments are received. This rule will be effective on May 22, 2017 
without further notice unless we receive relevant adverse comment by 
April 24, 2017. If we receive relevant adverse comments, we will 
publish a timely withdrawal in the Federal Register informing the 
public that the rule will not take effect. We will address all public 
comments in a subsequent final rule based on the proposed rule. We will 
not institute a second comment period on this action. Any parties 
interested in commenting must do so now. Please note that if we receive 
relevant adverse comment on an amendment, paragraph, or section of this 
rule and if that provision may be severed from the remainder of the 
rule, we may adopt as final those provisions of the rule that are not 
the subject of an adverse comment.
    We are also making a ministerial correction to the table in 40 CFR 
52.970(c) to reflect accurately the inclusion of sections 1101 and 1109 
within Chapter 11, which addresses Control of Emissions from Smoke in 
the EPA-approved SIP on March 3, 1989 (54 FR 9795).

[[Page 14826]]

IV. Incorporation by Reference

    In this action, the EPA is including in a final rule regulatory 
text that includes incorporation by reference. In accordance with the 
requirements of 1 CFR 51.5, the EPA is incorporating by reference 
revisions to the Louisiana regulations as described above. The EPA has 
made, and will continue to make, these documents generally available 
electronically through www.regulations.gov and/or in hard copy at the 
EPA Region 6 office.

V. Statutory and Executive Order Reviews

    Under the CAA, the Administrator is required to approve a SIP 
submission that complies with the provisions of the Act and applicable 
Federal regulations. 42 U.S.C. 7410(k); 40 CFR 52.02(a). Thus, in 
reviewing SIP submissions, the EPA's role is to approve state choices, 
provided that they meet the criteria of the CAA. Accordingly, this 
action merely approves state law as meeting Federal requirements and 
does not impose additional requirements beyond those imposed by state 
law. For that reason, this action:
     Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' subject to 
review by the Office of Management and Budget under Executive Orders 
12866 (58 FR 51735, October 4, 1993) and 13563 (76 FR 3821, January 21, 
2011);
     Does not impose an information collection burden under the 
provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.);
     Is certified as not having a significant economic impact 
on a substantial number of small entities under the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.);
     Does not contain any unfunded mandate or significantly or 
uniquely affect small governments, as described in the Unfunded 
Mandates Reform Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-4);
     Does not have Federalism implications as specified in 
Executive Order 13132 (64 FR 43255, August 10, 1999);
     Is not an economically significant regulatory action based 
on health or safety risks subject to Executive Order 13045 (62 FR 
19885, April 23, 1997);
     Is not a significant regulatory action subject to 
Executive Order 13211 (66 FR 28355, May 22, 2001);
     Is not subject to requirements of section 12(d) of the 
National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (15 U.S.C. 272 
note) because application of those requirements would be inconsistent 
with the CAA; and
     Does not provide EPA with the discretionary authority to 
address, as appropriate, disproportionate human health or environmental 
effects, using practicable and legally permissible methods, under 
Executive Order 12898 (59 FR 7629, February 16, 1994).
    In addition, the SIP is not approved to apply on any Indian 
reservation land or in any other area where EPA or an Indian tribe has 
demonstrated that a tribe has jurisdiction. In those areas of Indian 
country, the rule does not have tribal implications and will not impose 
substantial direct costs on tribal governments or preempt tribal law as 
specified by Executive Order 13175 (65 FR 67249, November 9, 2000).
