Approval of Section 112(l) Authority for Hazardous Air

Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants; Plating and Polishing 

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.


SUMMARY: On December 12, 2016, pursuant to section 112(l) of the Clean 
Air Act (CAA), the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation 
(TDEC) requested approval to implement and enforce State permit terms 
and conditions that substitute for the National Emission Standards for 
Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) from Plating and Polishing Operations 
with respect to the operation of the Ellison Surface Technologies, Inc. 
facility in Morgan County, Tennessee (Ellison). The Environmental 
Protection Agency is proposing to approve this request, and thus, 
proposing to grant TDEC the authority to implement and enforce 
alternative requirements in the form of title V permit terms and 
conditions after the EPA has approved the State's alternative

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the Final Rules Section of this issue of 
the Federal Register, the EPA is approving the State's program revision 
as a direct final rule without prior proposal because the Agency views 
this as a noncontroversial submittal and anticipates no adverse 
comments. A detailed rationale for the approval is set forth in the 
direct final rule and incorporated herein by reference. If no adverse 
comments are received in response to this rule, no further activity is 
contemplated. If the EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final 
rule will be withdrawn and all adverse comments received will be 
addressed in a subsequent final rule based on this proposed rule. The 
EPA will not institute a second comment period on this document. Any 
parties interested in commenting on this document should do so at this 

    Dated: June 14, 2017.
V. Anne Heard,
Acting Regional Administrator, Region 4.
