Status message

There are 9 Updates appearing in the Federal Register for 40 CFR 60. View below or at eCFR (GPOAccess)
§ 60.47Da Commercial demonstration permit.
(a) An owner or operator of an affected facility proposing to demonstrate an emerging technology may apply to the Administrator for a commercial demonstration permit. The Administrator will issue a commercial demonstration permit in accordance with paragraph (e) of this section. Commercial demonstration permits may be issued only by the Administrator, and this authority will not be delegated.
(b) An owner or operator of an affected facility that combusts solid solvent refined coal (SRC-I) and who is issued a commercial demonstration permit by the Administrator is not subject to the SO2 emission reduction requirements under § 60.43Da(c) but must, as a minimum, reduce SO2 emissions to 20 percent of the potential combustion concentration (80 percent reduction) for each 24-hour period of steam generator operation and to less than 520 ng/J (1.20 lb/MMBtu) heat input on a 30-day rolling average basis.
(c) An owner or operator of an affected facility that uses fluidized bed combustion (atmospheric or pressurized) and who is issued a commercial demonstration permit by the Administrator is not subject to the SO2 emission reduction requirements under § 60.43Da(a) but must, as a minimum, reduce SO2 emissions to 15 percent of the potential combustion concentration (85 percent reduction) on a 30-day rolling average basis and to less than 520 ng/J (1.20 lb/MMBtu) heat input on a 30-day rolling average basis.
(d) The owner or operator of an affected facility that combusts coal-derived liquid fuel and who is issued a commercial demonstration permit by the Administrator is not subject to the applicable NOX emission limitation and percent reduction under § 60.44Da(a) but must, as a minimum, reduce emissions to less than 300 ng/J (0.70 lb/MMBtu) heat input on a 30-day rolling average basis.
(e) Commercial demonstration permits may not exceed the following equivalent MW electrical generation capacity for any one technology category, and the total equivalent MW electrical generation capacity for all commercial demonstration plants may not exceed 15,000 MW.
Technology Pollutant Equivalent electrical capacity(MW electrical output)
Solid solvent refined coal (SCR I) SO2 6,000-10,000
Fluidized bed combustion (atmospheric) SO2 400-3,000
Fluidized bed combustion (pressurized) SO2 400-1,200
Coal liquification NOX 750-10,000
Total allowable for all technologies 15,000
(f) An owner or operator of an affected facility that uses a pressurized fluidized bed or a multi-pollutant emissions controls system who is issued a commercial demonstration permit by the Administrator is not subject to the total PM emission reduction requirements under § 60.42Da but must, as a minimum, reduce PM emissions to less than 6.4 ng/J (0.015 lb/MMBtu) heat input.
(g) An owner or operator of an affected facility that uses a pressurized fluidized bed or a multi-pollutant emissions controls system who is issued a commercial demonstration permit by the Administrator is not subject to the SO2 standards or emission reduction requirements under § 60.43Da but must, as a minimum, reduce SO2 emissions to 5 percent of the potential combustion concentration (95 percent reduction) or to less than 180 ng/J (1.4 lb/MWh) gross energy output on a 30-boiler operating day rolling average basis.
(h) An owner or operator of an affected facility that uses a pressurized fluidized bed or a multi-pollutant emissions control system or advanced combustion controls who is issued a commercial demonstration permit by the Administrator is not subject to the NOX standards or emission reduction requirements under § 60.44Da but must, as a minimum, reduce NOX emissions to less than 130 ng/J (1.0 lb/MWh) or the combined NOX plus CO emissions to less than 180 ng/J (1.4 lb/MWh) gross energy output on a 30-boiler operating day rolling average basis.
(i) Commercial demonstration permits may not exceed the following equivalent MW electrical generation capacity for any one technology category listed in the following table.
Technology Pollutant Equivalent electrical capacity(MW electrical output)
Multi-pollutant Emission Control SO2 1,000
Multi-pollutant Emission Control NOX 1,000
Multi-pollutant Emission Control PM 1,000
Pressurized Fluidized Bed Combustion SO2 1,000
Pressurized Fluidized Bed Combustion NOX 1,000
Pressurized Fluidized Bed Combustion PM 1,000
Advanced Combustion Controls NOX 1,000
