In accordance with N.J.A.C. 7:27-22.31(j), the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (Department) is publishing a notice of the annual percentage increase in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) relative to the 1989 CPI and the resultant per-ton emission fee for fiscal year (FY) 2016 in the December 7, 2015 New Jersey Register.
The annual emission fee, paid by each major facility subject to N.J.A.C. 7:27-22, is calculated each year according to N.J.A.C. 7:27-22.31(b), which applies the CPI percentage increase to a base amount per ton of emissions. For FY 2016, the Department has calculated the CPI percentage increase as 0.46 percent, resulting in an annual emission fee of $116.30 per ton of regulated emissions.
A facility subject to this fee must multiply $116.30 times the quantity of regulated air contaminant emissions (VOC, NOx, CO, SO2, highest TPY of TSP, PM10, or PM 2.5) emitted in tons during calendar year 2014 (January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014). The result is the fee the facility must submit to the Department by January 31, 2016, for FY 2016. Invoices will be mailed to major facilities by December 31, 2015 based on emissions reported in the Emission Statement submitted for calendar year 2014.
