Capped Air Emission State Permit


This webpage contains information related to the state permit option, called "capped emission permit." A capped emission permit restricts a facility's emissions below federal permitting thresholds and requires the facility to comply with all applicable requirements. The facility is allowed to make changes as long as emissions remain below the facility-wide thresholds and the facility can demonstrate continued compliance with all requirements.

The rule (Minn.R.7007.1140 to 7007.1148) creating this permit option was effective on December 6, 2004. The Statement of Need and Reasonableness (SONAR) for the rulemaking provides explanation of the proposed rules:

As of January 24, 2011, greenhouse gas emissions are limited under the capped permits. For more information about this change, see the GHG Rulemaking web page.

Application forms are available on the Air Quality Forms web page. If you've previously submitted an application for a different type of permit or currently hold an air emissions permit, contact the MPCA at 651-296-6300 or 1-800-657-3864 prior to filling out the capped application forms to obtain information about your facility from the MPCA's database to simplify your application process

Ambient Air Quality Assessment Resources

Part 7007.1148 of the rule requires a facility to conduct an ambient air quality assessment when demonstrating initial eligibility for a capped permit or a state permit with environmental management system provision, or when required to do a pre-change analysis under part 7007.1146, subpart 3 of the rule. A facility is allowed to use the method in subpart 2 (CAPS spreadsheet) or subpart 3 (SCREEN3) of part 7007.1148 for each pollutant standard. The tools available for a facility to conduct this assessment are:
