§ 128.1. Procedure for submission of alternative emission reduction plans.

 (a)  The Department may accept proposals from air contamination source owners or operators to implement an alternative emission reduction option for existing sources known as the ‘‘bubble’’ policy. General guidelines for proposing the plans are contained in the Environmental Protection Agency’s policy statement of December 11, 1979, at 44 FR 71, 780 (1979).

 (b)  Proposals by source owners and operators for an alternative emission reduction option shall be submitted in a plan approval application issued by the Department for the purpose. Approval of an alternative emission reduction plan will be incorporated in a revised permit to operate in accordance with the requirements of Chapter 127, Subchapter A (relating to general), and alternative emission requirements will be specified in this chapter.

 (c)  Regulatory changes in accordance with the act are necessary before the plan may be approved and the plan will be submitted as a revision to the applicable State implementation plan in accordance with the Clean Air Act. Under section 7 of the act (35 P. S. §  4007), the Department has been authorized to publish notice of proposed rulemaking and conduct public hearings concerning each alternative emission reduction option.
