(1) Replacing the adsorbent as required by § 63.7925(h)(1)(i).
(2) Following the disposal requirements for spent carbon in § 63.693(d)(4)(ii).
(3) Keeping records to document compliance with the requirements of the work practice standards.
(f) You must demonstrate continuous compliance with the spent carbon replacement and disposal work practice standards for nonregenerable carbon adsorption systems in § 63.7925(h)(2) by meeting the requirements in paragraphs (f)(1) through (3) of this section.
(1) Replacing the adsorbent as required by the work practice standard in § 63.7925(h)(2)(i).
(2) Following the disposal requirements for spent carbon in § 63.693(d)(4)(ii).
(3) Keeping records to document compliance with the requirements of the work practice standards.
