2,3,4,6-tetrachlorophenol a <ML b (c)
Pentachlorophenol a <ML b (c)
(ii) The following pretreatment standards apply with respect to each new source fiber line operated by an indirect discharger producing ammonium-based sulfite pulps if the indirect discharger discloses to the pretreatment control authority in a report submitted under 40 CFR 403.12(b) that it uses exclusively TCF bleaching processes at that fiber line:
Subpart E—Production of Ammonium-Based Sulfite Pulps
Pollutant or pollutant parameter PSES (TCF)
Maximum for any 1 day Monthlyaverage
a “<ML” means less than the minimum level specified in § 430.01(i) for the particular pollutant.
b This regulation does not specify this type of limitation for this pollutant; however, pretreatment control authorities may do so as appropriate.
AOX <ML a (b)
(3)
(i) The following pretreatment standards apply to all indirect dischargers in the specialty grade sulfite pulp segment:
Subpart E—Production of Specialty Grade Sulfite Pulps
Pollutant or pollutant property PSES
Maximum for any 1 day Monthly average
a These limitations do not apply with respect to fiber lines operated by any indirect discharger that discloses to the pretreatment control authority, at the time it submits the report required under 40 CFR 403.12(b), (d), or (e), that it uses a TCF bleaching process at that fiber line.
b “<ML” means less than the minimum level specified in § 430.01(i) for the particular pollutant.
c This regulation does not specify this type of limitation for this pollutant; however, pretreatment control authorities may do so as appropriate.
TCDD a <ML b (c)
TCDF a <ML b (c)
Trichlorosyringol a <ML b (c)
3,4,5-trichlorocatechol a <ML b (c)
3,4,6-trichlorocatechol a <ML b (c)
3,4,5-trichloroguaiacol a <ML b (c)
3,4,6-trichloroguaiacol a <ML b (c)
4,5,6-trichloroguaiacol a <ML b (c)
2,4,5-trichlorophenol a <ML b (c)
2,4,6-Trichlorophenol a <ML b (c)
Tetrachlorocatechol a <ML b (c)
Tetrachloroguaiacol a <ML b (c)
2,3,4,6-tetrachlorophenol a <ML b (c)
Pentachlorophenol a <ML b (c)
(ii) The following pretreatment standards apply with respect to each fiber line operated by an indirect discharger producing specialty grade sulfite pulps if the indirect discharger discloses to the pretreatment control authority in a report submitted under 40 CFR 403.12(b), (d), or (e) that it uses exclusively TCF bleaching processes at that fiber line. These pretreatment standards must be attained on or before April 16, 2001:
Subpart E
Pollutant or pollutant parameter PSES (TCF)
Maximum for any 1 day Monthlyaverage
a “<ML” means less than the minimum level specified in § 430.01(i) for the particular pollutant.
b This regulation does not specify this type of limitation for this pollutant; however, pretreatment control authorities may do so as appropriate.
AOX <ML a (b)
(b) The following pretreatment standards apply to each indirect discharger, in accordance with the previous subcategorization scheme, unless it certifies to the pretreatment control authority that it is not using these compounds as biocides. In cases when POTWs find it necessary to impose mass effluent limitations, equivalent mass limitations are provided as guidance:
Subpart E
Pollutant or pollutant property Supplemental PSES
Maximum for any 1 day
kg/kkg (or pounds per 1,000 lb) of product Milligrams/liter
Pentachlorophenol 0.00058exp(0.017x) ((0.011)(12.67)exp(0.017x))/y
Trichlorophenol 0.0043exp(0.017x) ((0.082)(12.67)exp(0.017x))/y
x = percent sulfite pulp in final product.
y = wastewater discharged in kgal per ton of product.
(c) An indirect discharger must demonstrate compliance with the pretreatment standards in paragraphs (a)(2) or (a)(3) of this section, as applicable, by monitoring for all pollutants at the point where the wastewater containing those pollutants leaves the bleach plant.
