Emission Reduction Credits (ERC) Banking

Applicability

LAC 33:III.Chapter 6 establishes the means of enabling stationary sources to identify and preserve or acquire emission reductions for New Source Review (NSR) offsets.

Eligibility

Major stationary sources are subject to Chapter 6 for the purpose of utilizing emission reductions as offsets in accordance with LAC 33:III.504.  Minor stationary sources located in nonattainment areas may submit ERC bank applications for purposes of banking.  Except as noted below, sources located in EPA-designated attainment areas may not participate in the emissions banking program.  Any stationary point source (including fugitive emissions) at an affected facility is eligible to participate.

Sources located in the parishes of Ascension, East Baton Rouge, Iberville, Livingston, and West Baton Rouge may participate in the emissions banking program for purposes of securing offsets where required by LAC 33:III.504.M.
