40 CFR 98.456 - Data reporting requirements.

§ 98.456 Data reporting requirements.

In addition to the information required by § 98.3(c), each annual report must contain the following information for each chemical at the facility level:

(a) Pounds of SF6 and PFCs stored in containers at the beginning of the year.

(b) Pounds of SF6 and PFCs stored in containers at the end of the year.

(c) Pounds of SF6 and PFCs purchased in bulk.

(d) Pounds of SF6 and PFCs returned by equipment users with or inside equipment.

(e) Pounds of SF6 and PFCs returned to site from off site after recycling.

(f) Pounds of SF6 and PFCs inside new equipment delivered to customers.

(g) Pounds of SF6 and PFCs delivered to equipment users in containers.

(h) Pounds of SF6 and PFCs returned to suppliers.

(i) Pounds of SF6 and PFCs sent off site for destruction.

(j) Pounds of SF6 and PFCs sent off site to be recycled.

(k) The nameplate capacity of the equipment, in pounds, delivered to customers with SF6 or PFCs inside, if different from the quantity in paragraph (f) of this section.

(l) A description of the engineering methods and calculations used to determine emissions from hoses or other flow lines that connect the container to the equipment that is being filled.

(m) The values for EFci of Equation SS-5 of this subpart for each hose and valve combination and the associated valve fitting sizes and hose diameters.

(n) The total number of fill operations for each hose and valve combination, or, FCi of Equation SS-5 of this subpart.

(o) If the mass of SF6 or the PFC disbursed to customers in new equipment over the period p is determined according to the methods required in § 98.453(h), report the mean value of nameplate capacity in pounds for each make, model, and group of conditions.

(p) If the mass of SF6 or the PFC disbursed to customers in new equipment over the period p is determined according to the methods required in § 98.453(h), report the number of samples and the upper and lower bounds on the 95 percent confidence interval for each make, model, and group of conditions.

(q) Pounds of SF6 and PFCs used to fill equipment at off-site electric power transmission or distribution locations, or MF, of Equation SS-6 of this subpart.

(r) Pounds of SF6 and PFCs used to charge the equipment prior to leaving the electrical equipment manufacturer or refurbishment facility, or MC, of Equation SS-6 of this subpart.

(s) The nameplate capacity of the equipment, in pounds, installed at off-site electric power transmission or distribution locations used to determine emissions from installation, or NI, of Equation SS-6 of this subpart.

(t) For any missing data, you must report the reason the data were missing, the parameters for which the data were missing, the substitute parameters used to estimate emissions in their absence, and the quantity of emissions thereby estimated.
