(g) Co-fired units. Units are exempt from your State plan if four requirements are met:
(1) The unit has a federally enforceable permit limiting municipal solid waste combustion to 30 percent of the total fuel input by weight.
(2) You are notified by the owner or operator that the unit qualifies for the exemption.
(3) You receive from the owner or operator of the unit a copy of the federally enforceable permit.
(4) The owner or operator records the weights, each quarter, of municipal solid waste and of all other fuels combusted.
(h) Plastics/rubber recycling units. Units are exempt from your State plan if four requirements are met:
(1) The pyrolysis/combustion unit is an integrated part of a plastics/rubber recycling unit as defined under “Definitions” (§ 60.1940).
(2) The owner or operator of the unit records the weight, each quarter, of plastics, rubber, and rubber tires processed.
(3) The owner or operator of the unit records the weight, each quarter, of feed stocks produced and marketed from chemical plants and petroleum refineries.
(4) The owner or operator of the unit keeps the name and address of the purchaser of the feed stocks.
(i) Units that combust fuels made from products of plastics/rubber recycling plants. Units are exempt from your State plan if two requirements are met:
(1) The unit combusts gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel, fuel oils, residual oil, refinery gas, petroleum coke, liquified petroleum gas, propane, or butane produced by chemical plants or petroleum refineries that use feed stocks produced by plastics/rubber recycling units.
(2) The unit does not combust any other municipal solid waste.
(j) Cement kilns. Cement kilns that combust municipal solid waste are exempt from your State plan.
(k) Air curtain incinerators. If an air curtain incinerator (see § 60.1940 for definition) combusts 100 percent yard waste, then those units must only meet the requirements under “Model Rule—Air Curtain Incinerators That Burn 100 Percent Yard Waste” (§§ 60.1910 through 60.1930).
