Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide environmental counsel with a thorough review of the EPA's new guidance and its requirements under the new GHG regulations and cover what to expect from state and local authorities. The panel will also offer practical tips for understanding and complying with the new regulatory requirements.

Description

The Environmental Protection Agency issued its long-awaited Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Permitting Guidance for state and federal authorities, as well as companies required to obtain permits, on issuing permits for large GHG emitters. The new requirements are scheduled to take effect Jan. 2, 2011.

The guidance demonstrates what is expected with the best available control technology (BACT) process. This new and intrusive approach to BACT presents many challenges for companies and their counsel.

To comply with the GHG regulations, companies and their counsel must understand the new requirements, the guidance, and how state and federal permitting authorities are planning to apply the guidance in issuing permits covering GHG emissions.

Listen as our authoritative panel of environmental and energy attorneys examines the guidance and the requirements under the new GHG regulations, explains what to expect from state and local authorities, and offers practical tips on meeting the new regulatory requirements.
