Regulation No. 1146 , “Electric Generating Unit (EGU)
Multi-Pollutant Regulation” Development Documents


The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) has developed a new regulation that will reduce air emission from Delaware’s coal and residual oil fired power plants. The reason for the new regulation is to protect public health, safety, and welfare from pollutants which include nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur oxides (SOx), and mercury.

The regulation is being appealed to the Environmental Appeals Board.

Background and Development Documents

To aid in the development of the regulatory requirements, a review committee was established, made up of DNREC personnel, persons with environmental interests, persons impacted by the emissions from power plants, and power plant owners and operators.

Following is a list of the steps that were taken by DNREC and the review committee to develop Regulation No. 1146.
