§ 63.642 General standards.
(a) Each owner or operator of a source subject to this subpart is required to apply for a part 70 or part 71 operating permit from the appropriate permitting authority. If the EPA has approved a State operating permit program under part 70, the permit shall be obtained from the State authority. If the State operating permit program has not been approved, the source shall apply to the EPA Regional Office pursuant to part 71.
(b) [Reserved]
(c) Table 6 of this subpart specifies the provisions of subpart A of this part that apply and those that do not apply to owners and operators of sources subject to this subpart.
(d) Initial performance tests and initial compliance determinations shall be required only as specified in this subpart.
(1) Performance tests and compliance determinations shall be conducted according to the schedule and procedures specified in this subpart.
(2) The owner or operator shall notify the Administrator of the intention to conduct a performance test at least 30 days before the performance test is scheduled.
(3) Performance tests shall be conducted according to the provisions of § 63.7(e) except that performance tests shall be conducted at maximum representative operating capacity for the process. During the performance test, an owner or operator shall operate the control device at either maximum or minimum representative operating conditions for monitored control device parameters, whichever results in lower emission reduction.
(4) Data shall be reduced in accordance with the EPA-approved methods specified in the applicable section or, if other test methods are used, the data and methods shall be validated according to the protocol in Method 301 of appendix A of this part.
(e) Each owner or operator of a source subject to this subpart shall keep copies of all applicable reports and records required by this subpart for at least 5 years except as otherwise specified in this subpart. All applicable records shall be maintained in such a manner that they can be readily accessed within 24 hours. Records may be maintained in hard copy or computer-readable form including, but not limited to, on paper, microfilm, computer, floppy disk, magnetic tape, or microfiche.
(f) All reports required under this subpart shall be sent to the Administrator at the addresses listed in § 63.13 of subpart A of this part. If acceptable to both the Administrator and the owner or operator of a source, reports may be submitted on electronic media.
(g) The owner or operator of an existing source subject to the requirements of this subpart shall control emissions of organic HAP's to the level represented by the following equation:
EA = 0.02Σ EPV1 Σ EPV2 0.05Σ ES1 Σ ES2 Σ EGLR1C Σ EGLR2 (R) Σ EMV1 Σ EMV2 Σ EWW1C Σ EWW2
where:
EA = Emission rate, megagrams per year, allowed for the source.
0.02Σ EPV1 = Sum of the residual emissions, megagrams per year, from all Group 1 miscellaneous process vents, as defined in § 63.641.
Σ EPV2 = Sum of the emissions, megagrams per year, from all Group 2 process vents, as defined in § 63.641.
0.05Σ ES1 = Sum of the residual emissions, megagrams per year, from all Group 1 storage vessels, as defined in § 63.641.
Σ ES2 = Sum of the emissions, megagrams per year, from all Group 2 storage vessels, as defined in § 63.641.
Σ EGLR1C = Sum of the residual emissions, megagrams per year, from all Group 1 gasoline loading racks, as defined in § 63.641.
Σ EGLR2 = Sum of the emissions, megagrams per year, from all Group 2 gasoline loading racks, as defined in § 63.641.
(R)Σ EMV1 = Sum of the residual emissions megagrams per year, from all Group 1 marine tank vessels, as defined in § 63.641.
R = 0.03 for existing sources, 0.02 for new sources.
Σ EMV2 = Sum of the emissions, megagrams per year from all Group 2 marine tank vessels, as defined in § 63.641.
Σ EWW1C = Sum of the residual emissions from all Group 1 wastewater streams, as defined in § 63.641. This term is calculated for each Group 1 stream according to the equation for EWWic in § 63.652(h)(6).
Σ EWW2 = Sum of emissions from all Group 2 wastewater streams, as defined in § 63.641.
The emissions level represented by this equation is dependent on the collection of emission points in the source. The level is not fixed and can change as the emissions from each emission point change or as the number of emission points in the source changes.
(h) The owner or operator of a new source subject to the requirements of this subpart shall control emissions of organic HAP's to the level represented by the equation in paragraph (g) of this section.
(i) The owner or operator of an existing source shall demonstrate compliance with the emission standard in paragraph (g) of this section by following the procedures specified in paragraph (k) of this section for all emission points, or by following the emissions averaging compliance approach specified in paragraph (l) of this section for specified emission points and the procedures specified in paragraph (k) of this section for all other emission points within the source.
(j) The owner or operator of a new source shall demonstrate compliance with the emission standard in paragraph (h) of this section only by following the procedures in paragraph (k) of this section. The owner or operator of a new source may not use the emissions averaging compliance approach.
(k) The owner or operator of an existing source may comply, and the owner or operator of a new source shall comply, with the miscellaneous process vent provisions in §§ 63.643 through 63.645, the storage vessel provisions in § 63.646, the wastewater provisions in § 63.647, the gasoline loading rack provisions in § 63.650, and the marine tank vessel loading operation provisions in § 63.651 of this subpart.
(1) The owner or operator using this compliance approach shall also comply with the requirements of § 63.655 as applicable.
(2) The owner or operator using this compliance approach is not required to calculate the annual emission rate specified in paragraph (g) of this section.
(l) The owner or operator of an existing source may elect to control some of the emission points within the source to different levels than specified under §§ 63.643 through 63.647, §§ 63.650 and 63.651 by using an emissions averaging compliance approach as long as the overall emissions for the source do not exceed the emission level specified in paragraph (g) of this section. The owner or operator using emissions averaging shall meet the requirements in paragraphs (l)(1) and (l)(2) of this section.
(1) Calculate emission debits and credits for those emission points involved in the emissions average according to the procedures specified in § 63.652; and
(2) Comply with the requirements of §§ 63.652, 63.653, and 63.655, as applicable.
(m) A State may restrict the owner or operator of an existing source to using only the procedures in paragraph (k) of this section to comply with the emission standard in paragraph (g) of this section. Such a restriction would preclude the source from using an emissions averaging compliance approach.
