129 Neb. Admin. Code, ch. 1, § 080 - "Major modification"

"Major modification" means any physical change in or change in the method of operation of a major stationary source that would result in a significant emissions increase of a regulated NSR pollutant and a significant net emissions increase of that pollutant from the major stationary source.

080.01 Any significant emissions increase from any emissions units or net emissions increase at a major stationary source that is significant for volatile organic compounds or NOx shall be considered significant for ozone.
080.02 A physical change or change in the method of operation shall not include:
080.02A Routine maintenance, repair and replacement;
080.02B Use of an alternative fuel or raw material by reason of any order under sections 2(a) and (b) of the Energy Supply and Environmental Coordination Act of 1974 (or any superseding legislation) or by reason of a natural gas curtailment plan pursuant to the Federal Power Act;
080.02C Use of an alternative fuel by reason of an order or rule under section 125 of the Act;
080.02D Use of an alternative fuel at a steam-generating unit to the extent that the fuel is generated from municipal solid waste;
080.02E Use of an alternative fuel or raw material by a stationary source which:
080.02E1 The source was capable of accommodating before December 21, 1976, unless such change would be prohibited under any federally enforceable permit condition, which was established after December 21, 1976, pursuant to the Prevention of Significant Deterioration Program as defined in Chapter 1; or
080.02E2 The source is approved to use under any permit issued under regulations approved pursuant to the Prevention of Significant Deterioration Program as defined in Chapter 1;
080.02F An increase in the hours of operation or in the production rate, unless such change would be prohibited under any federally enforceable permit condition, which was established after December 21, 1976, pursuant to the Prevention of Significant Deterioration Program as defined in Chapter 1; or
080.02G Any change in ownership at a stationary source.
080.02H The installation, operation, cessation, or removal of a temporary clean coal technology demonstration project, provided that the project complies with:
080.02H1 The State implementation plan for the State in which the project is located; and
080.02H2 Other requirements necessary to attain and maintain the national ambient air quality standards during the project and after it is terminated.
080.02I The installation or operation of a permanent clean coal technology demonstration project that constitutes repowering, provided that the project does not result in an increase in the potential to emit of any regulated pollutant emitted by the unit. This exemption shall apply on a pollutant-by-pollutant basis.
080.02J The reactivation of a very clean coal-fired electric utility team generating unit.
080.03 This definition shall not apply with respect to a particular regulated NSR pollutant when the major stationary source is complying with the requirements under Chapter 19 for a PAL for that pollutant. Instead, the definition of "PAL major modification" shall apply.
