For major sources of air toxics, this rule would only apply to engines that are:
- Smaller than or equal to 500 horsepower that were constructed or reconstructed before June 12, 2006, or
- Larger than or equal to 500 horsepower that were constructed or reconstructed before December 19, 2002.
The EPA estimates that this rule would reduce air toxics emissions by 13,000 tons per year, particle pollution by 2,600 tons and carbon monoxide emissions by 510,000 tons, when fully implemented in 2013.
