(d) Annual phosphate rock consumption from monthly measurement records by origin (tons).

(e) If you use a CEMS to measure CO2 emissions, then you must report the information in paragraphs (e)(1) and (e)(2) of this section.

(1) The identification number of each wet-process phosphoric acid process line.

(f) If you do not use a CEMS to measure emissions, then you must report the information in paragraphs (f)(1) through (9) of this section.

(1) Identification number of each wet-process phosphoric acid process line.

(2) Annual CO2 emissions from each wet-process phosphoric acid process line (metric tons) as calculated by either Equation Z-1a or Equation Z-1b of this subpart.

(3) Annual phosphoric acid permitted production capacity (tons) for each wet-process phosphoric acid process line (metric tons).

(4) Method used to estimate any missing values of inorganic carbon content or carbon dioxide content of phosphate rock for each wet-process phosphoric acid process line.
