Public Hearings on the RMP Safer Communities by Chemical Accident Prevention Proposed Rule

On August 18, 2022, EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan signed the Safer Communities by Chemical Accident Prevention (SCCAP) Proposed Rule, which proposes revisions to the Risk Management Program (RMP) to further protect vulnerable communities from chemical accidents, especially those living near facilities with high accident rates. The proposed rule would strengthen the existing program and includes new safeguards that have not been addressed in prior RMP rules. In addition to accepting written comments during the public comment period, EPA is also holding virtual public hearings. The virtual public hearings will provide the opportunity to present information, comments or views pertaining to the SCCAP proposed rule. [Information]

Dissolved Phosphorus and Green Infrastructure: Fundamentals, Challenges, and Opportunities

Reducing phosphorus pollution in aquatic ecosystems is a primary goal in many watersheds across the United States to mitigate eutrophication and harmful algal blooms. Several forms of green infrastructure can effectively reduce loads of total phosphorus to surface waters through the retention of particles and associated phosphorus. Retention of dissolved phosphorus has proven to be more challenging, and in some cases poor retention of dissolved phosphorus, or even net dissolved phosphorus release, can compromise phosphorus load reduction goals. Furthermore, limited overall capacity to retain dissolved phosphorus in green infrastructure systems can potentially result in declining performance over time. [Information]

LESS IS MORE: BUILDING TO ZERO ENERGY, WATER, AND CARBON

Recurring droughts and fires, severe weather stressing electric grids, and fluctuations in the natural gas market have communities and individuals increasingly seeking out solutions to create more resilient homes and businesses. Buildings that are energy, carbon, and water neutral have often been considered out of reach, but with new technologies and increasing energy and water prices, they are more attainable than ever. This session will explore the current state of “zero” and identify the challenges holding us back and opportunities, such as energy codes, pushing us forward. [Information]

CRACKING THE CODE: UNLOCKING THE BENEFITS OF OFF-SITE CONSTRUCTION

Industrialized construction practices, such as off-site manufacturing, have demonstrated an ability to reduce build times, lower costs, improve quality and performance, reduce environmental impact, create safer working environments, and increase overall construction productivity. Although this practice is far from new, challenges persist around code fragmentation, state and local inspections, and general education. In this session, we will hear about how DOE is supporting this practice through the Advanced Building Construction Initiative, the development of new off-site construction standards, and how manufacturers are finding creative ways to streamline code compliance.

OUTSIDE-THE-BOX OPTIONS TO ADVANCE MULTIFAMILY BUILDING EFFICIENCY

Multifamily buildings have historically been a challenging building type when it comes to energy code requirements. Whether its challenges related to envelope tightness and testing, implementing new technologies such as EV, PV, storage or heat pumps, or even knowing which code to use – this building type is often the topic of conversation. In this session, speakers will present new multifamily research and insights to continue to advance efficiency through energy codes. [Information]
