40 CFR 98.276 - Data reporting requirements.

§ 98.276 Data reporting requirements.
In addition to the information required by § 98.3(c) and the applicable information required by § 98.36, each annual report must contain the information in paragraphs (a) through (k) of this section as applicable:
(a) Annual emissions of CO2, biogenic CO2, CH4, biogenic CH4 N2O, and biogenic N2O (metric tons per year).
(b) Annual quantities fossil fuels by type used in chemical recovery furnaces and chemical recovery combustion units in short tons for solid fuels, gallons for liquid fuels and scf for gaseous fuels.
(c) Annual mass of the spent liquor solids combusted (short tons per year), and basis for determining the annual mass of the spent liquor solids combusted (whether based on T650 om-05 Solids Content of Black Liquor, TAPPI (incorporated by reference, see§ 98.7) or an online measurement system).
(d) The high heat value (HHV) of the spent liquor solids used in Equation AA-1 of this subpart (mmBtu per kilogram).
(e) The default or site-specific emission factor for CO2, CH4, or N2O, used in Equation AA-1 of this subpart (kg CO2, CH4, or N2O per mmBtu).
(f) The carbon content (CC) of the spent liquor solids, used in Equation AA-2 of this subpart (percent by weight, expressed as a decimal fraction, e.g., 95% = 0.95).
(g) Annual quantities of fossil fuels by type used in pulp mill lime kilns in short tons for solid fuels, gallons for liquid fuels and scf for gaseous fuels.
(h) Make-up quantity of CaCO3 used for the reporting year (metric tons per year) used in Equation AA-3 of this subpart.
(i) Make-up quantity of Na2CO3 used for the reporting year (metric tons per year) used in Equation AA-3 of this subpart.
(j) Annual steam purchases (pounds of steam per year).
(k) Annual production of pulp and/or paper products produced (metric tons).

§ 98.276 Data reporting requirements.

In addition to the information required by § 98.3(c) and the applicable information required by § 98.36, each annual report must contain the information in paragraphs (a) through (l) of this section as applicable:

(a) Annual emissions of CO2, biogenic CO2, CH4, biogenic CH4 N2O, and biogenic N2O (metric tons per year).

(b) [Reserved]

(c) Basis for determining the annual mass of the spent liquor solids combusted (whether based on T650 om-05 Solids Content of Black Liquor, TAPPI (incorporated by reference, see § 98.7) or an online measurement system).

(d) [Reserved]

(e) The default emission factor for CO2, CH4, or N2O, used in Equation AA-1 of this subpart (kg CO2, CH4, or N2O per mmBtu).

(f)-(i) [Reserved]

(j) Annual steam purchases (pounds of steam per year).

(k) Total annual production of unbleached virgin chemical pulp produced onsite during the reporting year in air-dried metric tons per year. This total annual production value is the sum of all kraft, semichemical, soda, and sulfite pulp produced onsite, prior to bleaching, through all virgin pulping lines. Do not include mechanical pulp or secondary fiber repulped for paper production in the virgin pulp production total.

(l) For each pulp mill lime kiln, report the information specified in paragraphs (l)(1) and (2) of this section.

(1) The quantity of calcium oxide (CaO) produced (metric tons).

(2) The percent of annual heat input, individually for each fossil fuel type.
