Utah Point Source Halogen Emissions

HB 220 – Emissions Reduction Amendments, was passed during the 2023 Utah Legislature General Session. The legislation was subsequently signed into law by Governor Cox. The legislation’s applicability is limited to Box Elder, Davis, Salt Lake, Weber, Tooele and Utah counties and directs the Utah Division of Air Quality (DAQ) to:

  1. Complete an air emissions inventory of point sources that emit halogens by December 31, 2024.
  2. Complete a best available control technology emissions reduction plan to reduce the compounds of halogens with an implementation date of December 31, 2026.
  3. Provide recommendations for a state standard limiting halogen emissions.

The legislation also directs DAQ to report on the status of the above to the Natural Resources, Agriculture, and Environment (NRAE) Interim Committee during the November 2023 and 2024 meetings.
