(1) Monthly production of soda ash (tons)
(2) Monthly consumption of trona or liquid alkaline feedstock (tons)
(3) Annual operating hours (hours).
(b) If a CEMS is not used to measure emissions, then you must retain records for the information listed in this paragraph (b):
(1) Records of all analyses and calculations conducted for determining all reported data as listed in § 98.296(b).

The estimated accuracy of measurements made with these devices must also be recorded, and the technical basis for these estimates must be provided.
(5) If you produce soda ash using the liquid alkaline feedstock process and use the site-specific emission factor method to estimate emissions (§ 98.293(b)(3)) then you must also retain the following relevant information:
(i) Records of performance test results.
