Demystify the OOOO Maze with BAIR

March 14, 20241 min read
EPA OOOO regulations

Here's a quick breakdown of the four key OOOO categories and their impact:

OOOOa applies to new and modified facilities, mandating stricter controls on volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and methane emissions. This means enhanced Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) programs that potentially need continuous monitoring for high emitting sources.

OOOOb focuses on pneumatic controllers, requiring replacements or retrofits with low-bleed or zero-bleed technologies. This necessitates inventorying controllers, analyzing replacement feasibility, and budgeting for potential upgrades.

OOOOc targets existing facilities, implementing LDAR programs and requiring regular emissions inspections. Companies will need to identify high-emitting sources and prioritize repairs, potentially leading to increased maintenance costs.

These changes can lead to a range of challenges, including:

  • Operational Disruption: Implementing new requirements often involves facility modifications and schedule adjustments.

  • Costly Upgrades: New equipment, monitoring systems, and LDAR program enhancements can necessitate significant investments.

  • Compliance Uncertainty: Navigating the intricacies of the regulations can be daunting, with the risk of unintentional non-compliance.

But fear not! BAIR can be your OOOO compliance compass:
