PUBLIC NOTICE | Proposal to Renew the Hot Mix Asphalt Plant and Crushing & Screening Plant Air Quality General Permits

ADEQ has reached a preliminary determination and is proposing to renew the Hot Mix Asphalt Plant Air Quality General Permit and the Crushing and Screening Plant Air Quality General Permit. General Permits are a type of permit that applies to a class of sources; consequently, this revision will affect multiple sources throughout the state. Both of these permits contain requirements from the Federal Clean Air Act, Arizona Revised Statute 49-426, the Arizona Administrative Code, Title 18, Chapter 2 and applicable regulations from Maricopa, Pima and Pinal county codes.

The Hot Mix Asphalt Plant Air Quality General Permit and Crushing and Screening Plant Air Quality General Permit are renewals of the current permits. Both of these General Permits cover stationary or portable facilities. Facilities permitted under the proposed General Permits may emit the following air contaminants: Particulate Matter with an aerodynamic diameter less than 10 microns (PM10), Particulate Matter with an aerodynamic diameter less than 2.5 microns (PM2.5), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), and Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs).
