40 CFR 98.283 - Calculating GHG emissions.

Status message

There are 3 Updates appearing in the Federal Register for 40 CFR 98. View below or at eCFR (GPOAccess)
§ 98.283 Calculating GHG emissions.
You must calculate and report the annual process CO2 emissions from each silicon carbide process unit or production furnace using the procedures in either paragraph (a) or (b) of this section. You must determine CH4 process emissions in accordance with the procedures specified in paragraph (d) of this section.
(a) Calculate and report under this subpart the process CO2 emissions by operating and maintaining CEMS according to the Tier 4 Calculation Methodology specified in § 98.33(a)(4) and all associated requirements for Tier 4 in subpart C of this part (General Stationary Fuel Combustion Sources).
(b) Calculate and report under this subpart the process CO2 emissions using the procedures in paragraphs (b)(1) and (b)(2) of this section.
(1) Use Equation BB-1 of this section to calculate the facility-specific emissions factor for determining CO2 emissions. The carbon content must be measured monthly and used to calculate a monthly CO2 emisssions factor:
Where:
EFCO2,n = CO2 emissions factor in month n (metric tons CO2/metric ton of petroleum coke consumed).
0.65 = Adjustment factor for the amount of carbon in silicon carbide product (assuming 35 percent of carbon input is in the carbide product).
CCFn = Carbon content factor for petroleum coke consumed in month n from the supplier or as measured by the applicable method incorporated by reference in § 98.7 according to § 98.284(c) (percent by weight expressed as a decimal fraction).
44/12 = Ratio of molecular weights, CO2 to carbon.
(2) Use Equation BB-2 of this section to calculate annual CO2 process emissions from all silicone carbide production:
Where:
CO2 = Annual CO2 emissions from silicon carbide production facility (metric tons CO2).
Tn = Petroleum coke consumption in month n (tons).
EFCO2,n = CO2 emissions factor from month n (calculated in Equation BB-1 of this section).
2000/2205 = Conversion factor to convert tons to metric tons.
n = Number of month.
(c) If GHG emissions from a silicon carbide production furnace or process unit are vented through the same stack as any combustion unit or process equipment that reports CO2 emissions using a CEMS that complies with the Tier 4 Calculation Methodology in subpart C of this part (General Stationary Fuel Combustion Sources), then the calculation methodology in paragraph (b) of this section shall not be used to calculate process emissions. The owner or operator shall report under this subpart the combined stack emissions according to the Tier 4 Calculation Methodology in § 98.33(a)(4) and all associated requirements for Tier 4 in subpart C of this part.
(d) You must calculate annual process CH4 emissions from all silicon carbide production combined using Equation BB-3 of this section:
Where:
CH4 = Annual CH4 emissions from silicon carbide production facility (metric tons CH4).
Tn = Petroleum coke consumption in month n (tons).
10.2 = CH4 emissions factor (kg CH4/metric ton coke).
2000/2205 = Conversion factor to convert tons to metric tons.
0.001 = Conversion factor from kilograms to metric tons.
n = Number of month.
