The following highlights a few of the proposed changes to the Regulation:
1. If a facility engages in an Activity at a site that is not eligible for Sector Registry (i.e. manufacturing paint booth exhaust, process related exhausts not listed above, process heat treating, chemical manufacturing exhausts, etc.) then all equipment on-site that would normally be eligible for Sector Registry is no longer eligible and must apply for a full Environmental Compliance Approval.
2. Minimum separation distances to sensitive receptors (residence, school, place of worship, etc.) apply to cooling towers depending on their location of installation.
3. There is a maximum cumulative cooling capacity for all cooling towers on-site, depending on the type of cooling tower, in order to be eligible for Sector Registry.
