Status message

There are 4 Updates appearing in the Federal Register for 40 CFR 98. View below or at eCFR (GPOAccess)
§ 98.176 Data reporting requirements.
In addition to the information required by § 98.3(c), each annual report must contain the information required in paragraphs (a) through (h) of this section for each coke pushing operation; taconite indurating furnace; basic oxygen furnace; non-recovery coke oven battery; sinter process; EAF; decarburization vessel; direct reduction furnace; and flare burning coke oven gas or blast furnace gas. For reporting year 2010, the information required in paragraphs (a) through (h) of this section is not required for decarburization vessels that are not argon-oxygen decarburization vessels. For reporting year 2011 and each subsequent reporting year, the information in paragraphs (a) through (h) of this section must be reported for all decarburization vessels.
(a) Unit identification number and annual CO2 emissions (in metric tons).
(b) Annual production quantity (in metric tons) for taconite pellets, coke, sinter, iron, and raw steel.
(c) If a CEMS is used to measure CO2 emissions, then you must report the relevant information required under § 98.36 for the Tier 4 Calculation Methodology.
(d) If a CEMS is not used to measure CO2 emissions, then you must report for each process whether the emissions were determined using the carbon mass balance method in § 98.173(b)(1) or the site-specific emission factor method in § 98.173(b)(2).
(e) If you use the carbon mass balance method in § 98.173(b)(1) to determine CO2 emissions, you must report the following information for each process:
(1) The carbon content of each process input and output used to determine CO2 emissions.
(2) Whether the carbon content was determined from information from the supplier or by laboratory analysis, and if by laboratory analysis, the method used.
(3) The annual volume of each type of gaseous fuel (reported separately for each type in standard cubic feet), the annual volume of each type of liquid fuel (reported separately for each type in gallons), and the annual mass (in metric tons) of each other process inputs and outputs used to determine CO2 emissions.
(4) The molecular weight of gaseous fuels.
(5) If you used the missing data procedures in § 98.175(b), you must report how the monthly mass for each process input or output with missing data was determined and the number of months the missing data procedures were used.
(f) If you used the site-specific emission factor method in § 98.173(b)(2) to determine CO2 emissions, you must report the following information for each process:
(1) The measured average hourly CO2 emission rate during the test (in metric tons per hour).
(2) The average hourly feed or production rate (as applicable) during the test (in metric tons per hour).
(3) The site-specific emission factor (in metric tons of CO2 per metric ton of feed or production, as applicable).
(4) The annual feed or production rate (as applicable) used to estimate annual CO2 emissions (in metric tons).
(g) The annual amount of coal charged to the coke ovens (in metric tons).
(h) For flares burning coke oven gas or blast furnace gas, the information specified in § 98.256(e) of subpart Y (Petroleum Refineries) of this part.
