40 CFR 98.286 - Data reporting requirements.

§ 98.286 Data reporting requirements.
In addition to the information required by § 98.3(c), each annual report must contain the information specified in paragraphs (a) or (b) of this section, as applicable for each silicon carbide production facility.
(a) If a CEMS is used to measure process CO2 emissions, you must report under this subpart the relevant information required for the Tier 4 Calculation Methodology in § 98.36 and the information listed in this paragraph (a):
(1) Annual consumption of petroleum coke (tons).
(2) Annual production of silicon carbide (tons).
(3) Annual production capacity of silicon carbide (tons).
(b) If a CEMS is not used to measure process CO2 emissions, you must report the information listed in this paragraph (b) for all furnaces combined:
(1) Monthly consumption of petroleum coke (tons).
(2) Annual production of silicon carbide (tons).
(3) Annual production capacity of silicon carbide (tons).
(4) Carbon content factor of petroleum coke from the supplier or as measured by the applicable method in § 98.284(c) for each month (percent by weight expressed as a decimal fraction).
(5) Whether carbon content of the petroleum coke is based on reports from the supplier or through self measurement using applicable ASTM standard method.
(6) CO2 emissions factor calculated for each month (metric tons CO2/metric ton of petroleum coke consumed).
(7) Sampling analysis results for carbon content of consumed petroleum coke as determined for QA/QC of supplier data under § 98.284(d) (percent by weight expressed as a decimal fraction).
(8) Number of times in the reporting year that missing data procedures were followed to measure the carbon contents of petroleum coke (number of months) and petroleum coke consumption (number of months).
