Superphosphoric acid process line means any process line which concentrates wet-process phosphoric acid to 66 percent or greater P2O5 content by weight.
Total fluorides means elemental fluorine and all fluoride compounds, including the HAP hydrogen fluoride, as measured by reference methods specified in 40 CFR part 60, appendix A , Method 13 A or B, or by equivalent or alternative methods approved by the Administrator pursuant to § 63.7(f).
