Clean Air Title V

1. Who is covered?

Sources that are subject to Illinois’ Title V permit program or CAPPP under Section 39.5 of the Environmental Protection Act.

2. What is the fee?

The site fees are based on the amount of emissions of any combination of regulated air pollutants as indicated below:

Allowable Emissions/Year Fee
< 100 tons $2,150
100 tons to <13,674 tons $21.50/ton
> 13,674 tons $294,000

3. What is the significance of the fees?

CAAPP Permits limit the allowable emissions of sources in Section 8.0 of the permit. This is done to set the sources annual site fees, which are calculated from the sources allowable emissions. While these fee limits are NOT federally enforceable, these fee related limits on a sources allowable emissions are enforecable under state law.

A 292 CAAPP fee form is required upon initial application and upon renewal application. A new fee form is also required when the source wishes to change their fee limits.
