Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Michigan has established a comprehensive program for controlling fugitive dust emissions, as well as visible emissions, odor, and noise requirements. In addition to incorporating by reference many of the federal standards addressing VOC leaks, the state also requires petroleum refineries, natural gas facilities, synthetic organic chemical and polymer production facilities, and transfer, storage, and disposal facilities to monitor for fugitive emissions of VOCs, and repair any leaks. The leak detection programs generally follow the federal requirements. Fugitive emissions of VOCs and other chemical substances are facility-specific. See the terms of your operating permit and contact DEQ for VOC and other chemical fugitive emissions control rules and procedures.
