40 CFR Appendix Table 4 to Subpart FFFF of Part 63 - Emission Limits for Storage Tanks

Table 4 to Subpart FFFF of Part 63 - Emission Limits for Storage Tanks

As required in § 63.2470, you must meet each emission limit in the following table that applies to your storage tanks:

For each . . . For which . . . Then you must . . .
1. Group 1 storage tank a. The maximum true vapor pressure of total HAP at the storage temperature is ≥76.6 kilopascals i. Reduce total HAP emissions by ≥95 percent by weight or to ≤20 ppmv of TOC or organic HAP and ≤20 ppmv of hydrogen halide and halogen HAP by venting emissions through a closed vent system to any combination of control devices (excluding a flare); or
ii. Reduce total organic HAP emissions by venting emissions through a closed vent system to a flare; or
iii. Comply with the requirements in § 63.2450(e)(4), as applicable; and reduce total HAP emissions by venting emissions to a fuel gas system or process in accordance with § 63.982(d) and the requirements referenced therein. 1
b. The maximum true vapor pressure of total HAP at the storage temperature is <76.6 kilopascals i. Comply with the requirements of subpart WW of this part, except as specified in § 63.2470; or
ii. Reduce total HAP emissions by ≥95 percent by weight or to ≤20 ppmv of TOC or organic HAP and ≤20 ppmv of hydrogen halide and halogen HAP by venting emissions through a closed vent system to any combination of control devices (excluding a flare); or
iii. Reduce total organic HAP emissions by venting emissions through a closed vent system to a flare; or
iv. Comply with the requirements in § 63.2450(e)(4), as applicable; and reduce total HAP emissions by venting emissions to a fuel gas system or process in accordance with § 63.982(d) and the requirements referenced therein. 1
2. Halogenated vent stream from a Group 1 storage tank You use a combustion control device to control organic HAP emissions Meet one of the emission limit options specified in Item 2.a.i or ii. in Table 1 to this subpart.
3. Storage tank of any capacity and vapor pressure Beginning no later than the compliance dates specified in § 63.2445(i), the stored liquid contains ethylene oxide such that the storage tank is considered to be in ethylene oxide service as defined in § 63.2550 Comply with the applicable emission limits specified in items 1 and 2 of this Table, and also:
i. Reduce emissions of ethylene oxide by venting emissions through a closed-vent system to a flare; or
ii. Reduce emissions of ethylene oxide by venting emissions through a closed-vent system to a control device that reduces ethylene oxide by ≥99.9 percent by weight, or to a concentration <1 ppmv for each storage tank vent.

1 Beginning no later than the compliance dates specified in § 63.2445(g), any flare using fuel gas from a fuel gas system, of which 50 percent or more of the fuel gas is derived from an MCPU that has processes and/or equipment in ethylene oxide service or that produces olefins or polyolefins, as determined on an annual average basis, must be in compliance with § 63.2450(e)(5). For purposes of compliance, an MCPU that “produces olefins or polyolefins” includes only those MCPUs that manufacture ethylene, propylene, polyethylene, and/or polypropylene as a product. By-products and impurities as defined in § 63.101, as well as wastes and trace contaminants, are not considered products.
