Major Source (Title V)

Facilities with the Potential to Emit one or more of the following are major sources:

  • 50 tons per year VOC
  • 10 tons per year of a single Hazardous Air Pollutant
  • 25 tons per year of all Hazardous Air Pollutants combined
  • 100 tons per year of any other regulated pollutant

Major sources of air emissions are regulated under both Chapter 115 and Chapter 140 of the Department's Regulations.

Installation of new equipment or modification of existing equipment requires a New Source Review (NSR) license processed under Chapter 115.

In addition to NSR licenses, major sources are required to obtain and maintain an air emission license, known as a “Part 70” or “Title V” license, processed under Chapter 140.
