19. An electricity generating facility (EGF), in SIC code 4911, combusts kerosene for the purpose of generating power for distribution in commerce. Is the facility subject to EPCRA Section 313?
Yes. Under the rule that expanded the industry sectors (May 1, 1997; 62 FR 23834) that must report under EPCRA Section 313, electricity generating facilities (EGFs) in SIC codes 4911, 4931, or 4939 that combust coal and/or oil for the purpose of generating power for distribution in commerce are subject to EPCRA Section 313 reporting requirements, provided that the other threshold criteria are met. Pursuant to this expansion, kerosene (as well as petroleum coke) is an oil.
