Mich. Admin. Code R. 336.2901 - Definitions

Current through Register Vol. 21-17, October 1, 2021

Rule 1901. The following definitions apply to terms used in this part. If a term defined here is also defined elsewhere in these rules, then the definition contained here supersedes for this part only:

(a) "Actual emissions" means the actual rate of emissions of a regulated new source review pollutant from an emissions unit, as determined under R 336.1101(b), except that this definition shall not apply for calculating whether a significant emissions increase has occurred, or for establishing a plant wide applicability limit under R 336.2907. Instead, the terms "projected actual emissions" and "baseline actual emissions" shall apply for those purposes.
(b) "Baseline actual emissions" means the rate of emissions, in tons per year, of a regulated new source review pollutant, as determined by the following:
(i) For any existing electric utility steam generating unit, baseline actual emissions means the average rate, in tons per year, at which the unit actually emitted the pollutant during any consecutive 24-month period selected by the owner or operator within the 5-year period immediately preceding when the owner or operator begins actual construction of the project. The department shall allow the use of a different time period upon a determination that it is more representative of normal source operation. The following shall apply:
(A) The average rate shall include fugitive emissions to the extent quantifiable, and emissions associated with startups, shutdowns, and malfunctions.
(B) The average rate shall be adjusted downward to exclude any non-compliant emissions that occurred while the source was operating above any emission limitation that was legally enforceable during the consecutive 24-month period.
(C) For a regulated new source review pollutant, when a project involves multiple emissions units, only one consecutive 24-month period shall be used to determine the baseline actual emissions for the emissions units being changed. A different consecutive 24-month period may be used for each regulated new source review pollutant.
(D) The average rate shall not be based on any consecutive 24-month period for which there is inadequate information for determining annual emissions, in tons per year, and for adjusting this amount if required by paragraph (i)(B) of this subdivision.
(ii) For an existing emissions unit, other than an electric utility steam generating unit, baseline actual emissions means the average rate, in tons per year, at which the emissions unit actually emitted the pollutant during any consecutive 24-month period selected by the owner or operator within the 10-year period immediately preceding either the date the owner or operator begins actual construction of the project, or the date a complete permit application is received by the department for a permit required under R 336.1201, whichever is earlier, except that the 10-year period shall not include any period earlier than November 15, 1990. All of the following shall apply:
(A) The average rate shall include fugitive emissions to the extent quantifiable, and emissions associated with startups, shutdowns, and malfunctions.
(B) The average rate shall be adjusted downward to exclude any non-compliant emissions that occurred while the source was operating above an emission limitation that was legally enforceable during the consecutive 24-month period.
(C) The average rate shall be adjusted downward to exclude any emissions that would have exceeded an emission limitation with which the major stationary source must currently comply, had the major stationary source been required to comply with the limitations during the consecutive 24-month period. However, if an emission limitation is part of a maximum achievable control technology standard that the United States environmental protection agency proposed or promulgated under 40 C.F.R. part 63, adopted by reference in R 336.1902, then the baseline actual emissions need only be adjusted if the department has taken credit for such emissions reductions in an attainment demonstration or maintenance plan.
(D) For a regulated new source review pollutant, when a project involves multiple emissions units, only 1 consecutive 24-month period shall be used to determine the baseline actual emissions for the emissions units being changed. A different consecutive 24-month period may be used for each regulated new source review pollutant.
(E) The average rate shall not be based on any consecutive 24-month period for which there is inadequate information for determining annual emissions, in tons per year, and for adjusting this amount if required by subparagraphs (B) and (C) of this paragraph.
(iii) For a new emissions unit, the baseline actual emissions for purposes of determining the emissions increase that will result from the initial construction and operation of such unit shall equal zero; and thereafter, for all other purposes, shall equal the unit's potential to emit.
(iv) For a plant wide applicability limit for a major stationary source, the baseline actual emissions shall be calculated for existing electric utility steam generating units under paragraph (i) of this subdivision, for other existing emissions units under paragraph (ii) of this subdivision, and for a new emissions unit under paragraph (iii) of this subdivision.
(c) "Begin actual construction" means, in general, initiation of physical on-site construction activities on an emissions unit which are of a permanent nature. Such activities include, but are not limited to, installation of building supports and foundations, laying of underground pipework, and construction of permanent storage structures. "A change in method of operation" refers to those on-site activities other than preparatory activities which mark the initiation of the change.
(d) "Best available control technology" or "BACT" means an emissions limitation, including a visible emissions standard, based on the maximum degree of reduction for each regulated new source review pollutant which would be emitted from any proposed major stationary source or major modification which the department, on a case-by-case basis, taking into account energy, environmental, and economic impacts and other costs, determines is achievable for such source or modification through application of production processes or available methods, systems, and techniques, including fuel cleaning or treatment or innovative fuel combustion techniques for control of such pollutant. Application of best available control technology shall not result in emissions of any pollutant which would exceed the emissions allowed by any applicable standard under 40 C.F.R. part 60 or 61, adopted by reference in R 336.1902. If the department determines that technological or economic limitations on the application of measurement methodology to a particular emissions unit would make the imposition of an emissions standard infeasible, then a design, equipment, work practice, operational standard, or combination thereof, may be prescribed instead to satisfy the requirement for the application of BACT. The standard shall, to the degree possible, set forth the emissions reduction achievable by implementation of the design, equipment, work practice, or operation, and shall provide for compliance by means which achieve equivalent results.
(e) "Building, structure, facility, or installation" means all of the pollutant-emitting activities which belong to the same industrial grouping, are located on 1 or more contiguous or adjacent properties, and are under the control of the same person, or persons under common control, except the activities of any vessel. Pollutant-emitting activities are part of the same industrial grouping if they have the same 2-digit major group code associated with their primary activity. Major group codes and primary activities are described in the standard industrial classification manual, 1987. For assistance in converting North American industrial classification system codes to standard industrial classification codes see http://www.census.gov/epcd/naics02/.
(f) "Clean coal technology" means any technology, including technologies applied at the precombustion, combustion, or post-combustion stage, at a new or existing facility which will achieve significant reductions in air emissions of sulfur dioxide or oxides of nitrogen associated with the utilization of coal in the generation of electricity, or process steam which was not in widespread use as of November 15, 1990.
(g) "Clean coal technology demonstration project" means a project using funds appropriated under the heading "department of energy-clean coal technology," up to a total amount of $2,500,000,000 for commercial demonstration of clean coal technology, or similar projects funded through appropriations for the United States environmental protection agency.

(n) "Electric utility steam generating unit" means any steam electric generating unit that is constructed for the purpose of supplying more than 1/3 of its potential electric output capacity and more than 25 megawatts electrical output to any utility power distribution system for sale. Any steam supplied to a steam distribution system for the purpose of providing steam to a steam-electric generator that would produce electrical energy for sale is also considered in determining the electrical energy output capacity of the affected facility.
(o) "Emissions unit" means any part of a stationary source that emits or would have the potential to emit any regulated new source review pollutant. The term emissions unit includes an electric steam generating unit. Each emissions unit can be classified as either new or existing based on the following:

(A) The increase in emissions from a particular physical change or change in the method of operation at a stationary source as calculated under R 336.2902(2).
(B) Any other increases and decreases in actual emissions at the major stationary source that occur within the contemporaneous period and are otherwise creditable.
(ii) The contemporaneous period must meet all of the following:
(A) Begins on the date 5 years before construction on the particular change commences.

(iii) An increase or decrease in actual emissions is creditable only if the department has not relied on it in issuing a permit under R 336.1201(1)(a) or R 336.1214a, which permit is in effect when the increase in actual emissions from the particular change occurs.
(iv) The magnitude of a creditable, contemporaneous increase in actual emissions is determined by the amount that the allowable emissions following the increase exceed the emissions unit's baseline actual emissions prior to the increase. This means allowable emissions and baseline actual emissions are determined from the date of the contemporaneous increase. Baseline actual emissions shall be determined as provided in the definition of baseline actual emissions, except that subdivision (b)(i)(C) and (b)(ii)(D) of this rule shall not apply.
(v) A contemporaneous decrease in actual emissions is creditable only to the extent that all of the following occur:

(2) The amount by which the emission unit's allowable emissions prior to the decrease exceed the level of allowable emissions following the decrease.
(3) In determining the magnitude of a creditable contemporaneous decrease, allowable emissions and baseline actual emissions are determined from the date of the contemporaneous decrease.

(D) It has approximately the same qualitative significance for public health and welfare as that attributed to the increase from the particular change.
(vi) An increase that results from a physical change at a source occurs when the emissions unit on which construction occurred becomes operational and begins to emit a particular pollutant. Any replacement unit that requires shakedown becomes operational only after a reasonable shakedown period, not to exceed 180 days.
(vii) The definition of actual emissions in R 336.1101(b) shall not apply for determining creditable increases and decreases after a change, instead the definitions of the terms "projected actual emissions" and "baseline actual emissions" shall be used.
(x) "Nonattainment major new source review" or "NSR" program means the requirements of this rule, R 336.1220, or R 336.1221. A permit issued under any of these rules is a major new source review permit.
(y) [Reserved]
(z) "Potential to emit" means the maximum capacity of a stationary source to emit a pollutant under its physical and operational design. Any physical or operational limitation on the capacity of the source to emit a pollutant, including air pollution control equipment and restrictions on hours of operation or on the type or amount of material combusted, stored, or processed, shall be treated as part of its design only if the limitation or the effect it would have on emissions is federally legally enforceable. Secondary emissions do not count in determining the potential to emit of a stationary source.

A single stationary source may contain more than one process unit, and a process unit may contain more than one emissions unit.
(i) Pollution control equipment is not part of the process unit, unless it serves a dual function as both process and control equipment. Administrative and warehousing facilities are not part of the process unit.
(ii) For replacement cost purposes, components shared between two or more process units are proportionately allocated based on capacity.
(iii) The following list identifies process units at specific categories of stationary sources.
(A) For a steam electric generating facility, the process unit consists of those portions of the plant that contribute directly to the production of electricity. For example, at a pulverized coal-fired facility, the process unit would generally be the combination of those systems from the coal receiving equipment through the emission stack (excluding post-combustion pollution controls), including the coal handling equipment, pulverizers or coal crushers, feedwater heaters, ash handling, boiler, burners, turbine-generator set, condenser, cooling tower, water treatment system, air preheaters, and operating control systems. Each separate generating unit is a separate process unit.
(B) For a petroleum refinery, there are several categories of process units: those that separate or distill, or both petroleum feedstocks; those that change molecular structures; petroleum treating processes; auxiliary facilities, such as steam generators and hydrogen production units; and those that load, unload, blend or store intermediate or completed products.

(ii) In determining the projected actual emissions before beginning actual construction, the owner or operator of the major stationary source shall do the following:
(A) Consider all relevant information, including but not limited to, historical operational data, the company's own representations, the company's expected business activity, and the company's highest projections of business activity, the company's filings with the state or federal regulatory authorities, and compliance plans under the approved state implementation plan.
(B) Include fugitive emissions to the extent quantifiable, and emissions associated with startups, shutdowns, and malfunctions.
(C) Exclude, in calculating any increase in emissions that results from the particular project, that portion of the unit's emissions following the project that an existing unit could have accommodated during the consecutive 24-month period used to establish the baseline actual emissions of this rule and that are also unrelated to the particular project, including any increased utilization due to product demand growth.

(iii) For the purposes of applying the requirements of R 336.2902(8) to modifications at major stationary sources of nitrogen oxides located in an ozone nonattainment area or in an ozone transport region, the significant emission rates and other requirements for volatile organic compounds in R 336.2901(hh)(i)(D), R 336.2901(hh)(ii) and R 336.2901(hh)(v) shall apply to nitrogen oxides emissions.
(iv) Notwithstanding the significant emissions rate for carbon monoxide in R 336.2901(hh)(i)(A), significant means, in reference to an emissions increase or a net emissions increase, any increase in actual emissions of carbon monoxide that would result from any physical change in, or change in the method of operation of, a major stationary source in a serious nonattainment area for carbon monoxide if such increase equals or exceeds 50 tons per year, provided that the United States environmental protection agency has determined that the stationary sources contribute significantly to carbon monoxide levels in that area.
(v) Notwithstanding the significant emissions rates for ozone in R 336.2901(hh)(i)(D) and R 336.2901(hh)(ii), any increase in actual emissions of volatile organic compounds from any emissions unit at a major stationary source of volatile organic compounds located in an extreme ozone nonattainment area that is subject to subpart 2, part D, title 1 of the clean air act shall be considered a significant net emissions increase.
(ii) "Significant emissions increase" means, for a regulated new source review pollutant, an increase in emissions that is significant for that pollutant.
(jj) "Stationary source" means any building, structure, facility, or installation which emits or may emit a regulated new source review pollutant.
