The definitions in OAR 340-200-0020 and this rule apply to OAR
340-245-9000 through 9095. If the same term is defined in this rule and
340-200-0020, the definition in this rule applies to this division.
"Colored Art Glass Manufacturer" or
"CAGM" means a facility that meets the applicability requirements in OAR
and refers to the owner or operator of such a facility when the
III" means chromium in the +3 oxidation state, also known as trivalent
(3) "Chromium VI" means
chromium in the +6 oxidation state, also known as hexavalent chromium.
(4) "Chromium", without a
following roman numeral, means total chromium.
(5) "Controlled" means the glassmaking
furnace emissions are treated by an emission control device approved by DEQ.
(6) "Cullet" means pieces of
finished glass that, when mixed with raw materials and charged to a glassmaking
furnace, is used to produce new glass. Cullet does not include frit as defined
in subsection (9)(a). Cullet is not considered to be a raw material.
(7) "Emission control device" means control
device as defined in OAR chapter 340, division 200.
(8) "Finished glass" means the final glass
product that results from melting and refining materials in a glassmaking
furnace. Finished glass that has been remelted without the addition of raw
materials is still finished glass.
"Frit" means both of the following:
(a) Granules of glassified or vitrified
material that is not made from finished glass, and which contains a higher
proportion of glassmaking HAP than would be found in a finished glass. The
purpose of such material includes, but is not limited to, making powdered
glassmaking HAPs safer to handle by combining them with silica or other oxides.
(b) Granules of crushed finished
furnace" means a refractory-lined vessel in which raw materials are charged and
melted at high temperature to produce molten glass.
(11) "Glassmaking HAP" means arsenic,
cadmium, chromium, lead, manganese, nickel or selenium in any form, such as the
pure chemical element, in compounds or mixed with other materials.
"Raw material" means:
Substances that are intentionally added
to a glass manufacturing batch and melted in a glassmaking furnace to produce
glass, including but not limited to:
Minerals, such as silica sand, limestone, and dolomite;
(B) Inorganic chemical compounds, such as
soda ash (sodium carbonate), salt cake (sodium sulfate), and potash (potassium
(C) Oxides and other
compounds of chemical elements, such as lead oxide, chromium oxide, and sodium
(D) Ores of
chemical elements, such as chromite and pyrolusite.
(b) Glassmaking HAPs that are
naturally-occurring trace constituents or contaminants of other substances are
not considered to be raw materials.
(c) Raw material includes materials that
contain glassmaking HAPs in amounts that materially affect the properties of
the finished product, such as its color, texture or bubble content. Such
materials may be powdered, frit, or in some other form. For the purpose of this
definition, frit as described in subsection (9)(a) is a raw material, but frit
as described in subsection (9)(b) is not a raw material.
(d) Cullet and material that is recovered
from a glassmaking furnace control device for recycling into the glass
formulation are not considered to be raw materials.
(13) "Tier 1 CAGM" means a CAGM that produces
at least 5 tons per year, but less than 100 tons per year, of glass using raw
materials that contain glassmaking HAPs in glassmaking furnaces that are only
(a) A CAGM that produces 5 tons
per year or more of glass using raw materials that contain glassmaking HAPs in
glassmaking furnaces, at least one of which is fuel-heated or combination fuel-
and electrically-heated; or
Produces 100 tons per year or more of glass using raw materials that contain
glassmaking HAPs in any type of glassmaking furnace.
(15) "Uncontrolled" means the glassmaking
furnace emissions are not treated by an emission control device approved by
"Week" means Sunday
