    Wayne Nastri

    (909) 396-3131
    Rees (909) 396-2856

    October 27, 2020:

    A. Determine That Proposed Amendments to Rule 445 – Wood-Burning Devices, Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Rule 445

    Proposed amendments to Rule 445 will satisfy U.S. EPA contingency measure requirements due by October 31, 2020 for the South Coast Air Basin (Basin) which is classified as an extreme non-attainment area for ozone. The proposed amendments would include addition of an ozone-based No-Burn day forecast for the Basin, effective September 1 through April 30. The ozone threshold for No-Burn days would be incrementally lowered automatically for each subsequent final determination by the U.S. EPA of a failure to meet an applicable Clean Air Act milestone. PM2.5 rule provisions will remain unchanged, including calling No-Burn days only from November 1 through the end of February. Other minor amendments include revisions/additions to the definition of terms used in the rule and revisions to improve clarity/rule implementation. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 445 – Wood-Burning Devices, are exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act; and 2) Amending Rule 445 – Wood-Burning Devices. (Review: Stationary Source Committee, October 16, 2020)

    B. Set Public Hearing November 6, 2020 to Determine That Proposed Amendments to Rule 1178 – Further Reductions of VOC Emissions from Storage Tanks at Petroleum Facilities, Are Exempt from CEQA and Amend Rule 1178

    Rule 1178 establishes requirements to control VOC emissions from storage tanks at petroleum facilities. Amendments to Rule 1178 are needed to address safety concerns related to the enclosure of external floating roof tanks that store sour water. Proposed Amended Rule 1178 will reinstate an expired provision that allows operators to accept a permit condition to limit the vapor pressure of organic liquid stored. This action is to adopt the Resolution: 1) Determining that the proposed amendments to Rule 1178 – Further Reductions of VOC Emissions from Storage Tanks at Petroleum Facilities, are exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act, and 2) Amending Rule 1178 – Further Reductions of VOC Emissions from Storage Tanks at Petroleum Facilities.

    Matt Miyasato

    (909) 396-3249
    Microgrids are gaining attention as a means of increasing the resiliency and reliability of the electricity system to support alternative fuel transportation. The University of California Irvine Advanced Power and Energy Program (UCI APEP) proposes a study to assess air quality impacts of connected microgrids by evaluating the fueling and charging options of alternative transportation under microgrid control. This action is to execute a contract with UCI APEP to develop a model for a connected network of microgrids for zero emission transportation in an amount not to exceed $290,000 from the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31).

    In 2019, the Board approved three projects to develop natural gas and propane conversion systems for the new Ford 7.3-liter gasoline engine with Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifiers, including a $607,825 award to Agility Fuel Solutions (Agility). However, a contract with Agility was not executed due to lack of necessary Ford approvals. CARB recently adopted a new lower Optional Low NOx Standard of 0.01 g/bhp-hr under the Heavy-Duty On-Road Low NOx “Omnibus” regulation. Subsequently, Agility submitted a revised proposal to further optimize the engine to achieve the newly adopted level.  This action is to execute a contract with Agility Fuel Solutions to develop, demonstrate and commercialize the Ford 7.3-liter medium-duty natural gas and propane conversions systems in an amount not to exceed $607,825 from the Clean Fuels Program Fund (31).
