Approval and Promulgation of Implementation Plan, North Carolina: 
Approval of Cape Industries, Air Permit No. 130R17

AGENCY: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On August 17, 1989, the State of North Carolina issued to Cape 
Industries, located in Wilmington, New Hanover County, North Carolina, 
air permit number 130R11, which set the sulfur dioxide emission limit 
at 2.3 pounds per million British Thermal Units (BTU). The State then 
submitted this permit to EPA on September 21, 1989, for approval as a 
revision to the State implementation plan (SIP). Air permit number 
130R11 expired on October 1, 1991, and was subsequently replaced by the 
current Cape Industries air permit number 130R17 in December 29, 1994. 
Upon review of the permit, EPA finds that the designated limit for Cape 
Industries is adequate to protect the ambient standard and approves 
this permit. In the final rules section of this Federal Register, the 
EPA is approving the State's SIP revision as a direct final rule 
without prior proposal because the EPA views this as a noncontroversial 
revision amendment and anticipates no adverse comments. A detailed 
rationale for the approval is set forth in the direct final rule. If no 
adverse comments are received in response to that direct final rule, no 
further activity is contemplated in relation to this proposed rule. If 
EPA receives adverse comments, the direct final rule will be withdrawn 
and all public comments received will be addressed in a subsequent 
final based on this proposed rule. The EPA will not institute a second 
comment period on this document. Any parties interested in commenting 
on this document should do so at this time.

DATES: To be considered, comments must be received by October 21, 1996.

ADDRESSES: Written comments on this action should be addressed to Mr. 
Randy Terry at the EPA Regional Office listed below.
    Copies of the documents relative to this action are available for 
public inspection during normal business hours at the following 
locations. The interested persons wanting to examine these documents 
should make an appointment with the appropriate office at least 24
