Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 1200-03-14-.03 - PROCESS EMISSION STANDARDS

(1) On and after July 1, 1975, the owner or operator of an air contaminant source located in a Class I county shall not cause, suffer, allow, or permit the emission from that source of sulfur oxides (calculated as sulfur dioxide) in excess of 500 parts per million, 0.05 percent by volume, dry basis (one hour average). Different standards and averaging times may be met as an alternative, or as required, where they are specified in Chapter 1200-03-19.
(2) On and after July 1, 1975, the owner or operator of an air contaminant source located in a Class II, III, or VII county shall not cause, suffer, allow, or permit the emission from that source of sulfur dioxide in excess of 1000 parts per million, 0.10 percent by volume, dry basis (one hour average).
(3) On and after July 1, 1975, the owner or operator of an air contaminant source located in a Class IV, V or VI county shall not cause, suffer, allow, or permit the emission from that source of sulfur dioxide in excess of 2,000 parts per million, 0.20 percent by volume, dry basis (one hour average).
(4) A process source in a Class IV county as an alternative to the standard in paragraph (3) above may request from the Technical Secretary of the Tennessee Air Pollution Control Board to be regulated by not being allowed to exceed their sulfur dioxide emission capacity in 1974, on a twenty-four hour and an annual basis. These emissions will be specified in a Board Order, as a permit condition, or other legally enforceable manner. This document will be incorporated into the State Implementation Plan. The cost of the legal notice involved must be paid by the requesting source. The Technical Secretary may approve such a request after being given adequate proof that this alternative standard will not cause any air quality standards to be violated, and the company has an adequate continuous air monitoring network for determining the impact of its emissions.
(5) No person shall cause, suffer, allow, or permit the emissions from any new air contaminant source in excess of those limits specified in Chapter 1200-03-14-.03, paragraph (1), (2) or (3), whichever is applicable. Regardless of the specific emission standard, new sources shall utilize the best available control technology as deemed appropriate by the Technical Secretary of the Tennessee Air Pollution Control Board.
(6) For purposes of this chapter, thermal oxidizers, and incinerators shall be construed as process emission sources.
(7) Limiting the Effect of the Definition of Modification. For the purpose of determining the applicable sulfur dioxide emission standards in this rule, a change in fuel from natural gas, propane, butane, and/or fuel oil to any of these herein named fuels and any required alterations to existing fuel burning equipment to accommodate these fuels shall not be considered a modification.
(8) Irrespective of the maximum allowable emission as determined in the preceding paragraphs of this rule, the maximum allowable sulfur dioxide emissions for a process emission source which is relocated more than 1.0 km from the previous position after November 6, 1988, shall not exceed the greater of the actual emissions at its previous location or the allowable emissions for a new process emission source.
