Chapter 60. Hazardous Air Pollutant Sources

9VAC5-60-150. Application content for case-by-case MACT determinations.

A. The Part 1 application for a case-by-case MACT determination shall contain the following information:

1. The name and address (physical location) of the major source;

2. A brief description of the major source and an identification of the relevant source category;

3. An identification of the types of emissions points belonging to the relevant source category; and

4. An identification of any affected sources for which a hazardous air pollutant new source review program MACT determination has been made.

B. The following provisions govern the Part 2 application for a case-by-case MACT determination:

1. In compiling a Part 2 MACT application, the owner may cross-reference specific information in any prior submission by the owner to the board, but in cross-referencing such information the owner may not presume favorable action on any prior application or request that is still pending. In compiling a Part 2 MACT application, the owner may also cross-reference any part of a proposed emission standard for any category or subcategory that includes sources to which the Part 2 application applies.

2. The Part 2 application for a MACT determination shall contain the following information:

a. For a new affected source, the anticipated date of startup of operation.

b. Each emission point or group of emission points at the affected source that is part of a category or subcategory for which a Part 2 MACT application is required and each of the hazardous air pollutants emitted at those emission points. When the administrator has proposed an emission standard for a category or subcategory, such information may be limited to those emission points and hazardous air pollutants that would be subject to control under the proposed standard.

c. Any existing federal, state, or local limitations or requirements governing emissions of hazardous air pollutants from those emission points that are part of a category or subcategory for which a Part 2 application is required.

d. For each identified emission point or group of affected emission points, an identification of control technology in place.

e. Any additional emission data or other information specifically requested by the board.

C. The Part 2 application for a MACT determination may, but is not required to, contain the following information:

1. Recommended emission limitations for the affected source and support information consistent with 40 CFR 63.52(f). The owner may recommend a specific design, equipment, work practice, or operational standard, or combination thereof, as an emission limitation;

2. A description of the control technologies that shall apply to meet the emission limitations including technical information on the design, operation, size, estimated control efficiency, and any other information deemed appropriate by the board, and identification of the affected sources to which the control technologies shall be applied; and

3. Relevant parameters to be monitored and frequency of monitoring to demonstrate continuous compliance with the MACT emission limitation over the applicable reporting period.
