– Jacob Shepherd, Senior Project Engineer of SCS Engineers, will present Landfill Air Regulation Update – New Methane Control and Federal Air Rules for 2021.
All landfills regulated under the NESHAP air program must comply with updated federal regulations by September 2021, including new requirements for landfill gas beneficial use treatment systems and gas system design plans. Additionally, the EPA is expected to finalize a federal plan implementing new NSPS air rules for landfills modified or constructed before July 2014, and not yet covered under an approved state plan. At the state level, as part of a continued focus on greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction, Maryland MDE is expected to publish new regulations this year addressing landfill methane control. This presentation will cover what landfills need to do to comply with the updated federal regulations and discuss anticipated new requirements under the MDE regulatory initiative.
