Emission Standards for Sewage Sludge Incineration Units (Rule 4-55)

A. The affected facilities to which the provisions of this article apply are sewage sludge incineration (SSI) units that meet all of the following criteria:

1. SSI units that commenced construction on or before October 14, 2010.

2. SSI units that meet the definition of a SSI unit as defined in 9VAC5-40-8210.

3. SSI units not exempt under subsection D of this section.

B. The provisions of this article apply throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.

C. The following provisions govern changes to SSI units.

1. If the owner of a SSI unit makes changes that meet the definition of modification after September 21, 2011, the SSI unit becomes subject to Subpart LLLL of 40 CFR Part 60 and the provisions of this article no longer apply to that unit.

2. If the owner of a SSI unit makes physical or operational changes to a SSI unit for which construction commenced on or before September 21, 2011, primarily to comply with the provisions of this article, Subpart LLLL of 40 CFR Part 60 does not apply to that unit. Such changes do not qualify as modifications under Subpart LLLL of 40 CFR Part 60.

These units may be subject to 40 CFR Part 60 (e.g., Subpart CCCC of 40 CFR Part 60). The owner of such a combustion unit shall notify the board of an exemption claim under this subsection.
