Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 1200-03-18-.06 - HANDLING, STORAGE, USE, AND DISPOSAL OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOC'S)

(1) Applicability of this rule is as follows:
(a) This rule applies to all facilities in Davidson, Rutherford, Shelby, Sumner, Williamson, or Wilson County which contains any source which is subject to standards and requirements in Rules 1200-03-18-.11 through .21 and .24 through .79 of this chapter other than only those requirements for demonstration of exemption or for maintenance of records to document exemption is achieved, for example, a threshold of material use or VOC emission per unit of time has not been exceeded.
(b) This rule does not apply to:
1. Any VOC or material containing VOC emitted in compliance with any other VOC standard under this chapter;
2. Waste paint (sludge) handling systems, water treatment systems, and other similar operations at coating and printing facilities using complying coatings and/or inks; and
3. Sources for which the applicable requirements in Rules 1200-03-18-.11 through .21 and .24 through .79 are only for demonstration of exemption or for maintenance of records to document exemption is achieved, for example, a threshold of material use or VOC emission per unit of time has not been exceeded.
(2) "Minimum reasonably attainable emissions" is the minimum quantity of VOC's which is emitted when utilizing all reasonable techniques for controlling evaporation during handling of materials for storage and disposal. Prevention of any evaporation of VOC's from storage and disposal techniques is considered minimum reasonably attainable.
(3) Standards as follow apply:
(a) No owner or operator of a source subject to this rule may cause, allow, or permit the disposal of more than 5 kilograms (kg) (11 pounds [lb]) of any volatile organic compound (VOC), or of any materials containing more than 5 kg (11 lb) of any VOC's, in any 1 day in a manner that would permit the evaporation from the facility of that VOC into the ambient air in excess of the minimum reasonably attainable.
(b) No owner or operator of a source subject to this rule shall use open containers for the storage or disposal of materials impregnated with VOC's that are used for surface preparation, cleanup, coating removal, or facility or equipment cleaning or maintenance.
(c) No owner or operator of a source subject to this rule shall store in open containers spent or fresh VOC to be used for surface preparation, cleanup, coating removal, or facility or equipment cleaning or maintenance except as otherwise provided for in this rule, such as in Subparagraph (d) of this paragraph.
(d) No owner or operator of a source subject to this rule shall use VOC for the cleanup of tools and process equipment, such as spray equipment, unless equipment is used to collect the cleaning compounds and to reasonably minimize their evaporation to the atmosphere.
(e) The owner or operator of a source subject to this rule and utilizing all reasonable techniques for controlling evaporation during handling, storage, use, and disposal of materials shall be considered to have achieved the minimum reasonably attainable VOC emissions required in Subparagraph (a) of this paragraph and to have reasonably minimized VOC emissions as required in Subparagraph (d) of this paragraph. Of course, prevention of any evaporation of VOC's from handling, storage, use, and disposal shall be considered achievement of minimum reasonably attainable and to reasonably minimize emissions. Such prevention of any evaporation shall be accepted as a method of achieving compliance with the requirements of Subparagraph (a) and (d) of this paragraph.
(4) {Reserved}
(5) {Reserved}
(6) By July 1, 1996, the owner or operator of an existing source as of August 11, 1996, and subject to this rule shall submit to the Technical Secretary a plan acceptable to the Technical Secretary specifying the methods that will be implemented to achieve compliance with the requirements of Subparagraph (3)(a) and (d) of this rule, along with details of records to be kept demonstrating compliance is maintained.
(7) With respect to compliance certification, initiation of recordkeeping and reporting, and completion of control system compliance testing of a source, the owner or operator of that source shall comply with the requirements of Rule 1200-03-18-.04 of this chapter, except that the applicable date for initial compliance and certification and performance testing shall be November 15, 1996 rather than April 22, 1994. Records demonstrating compliance with the requirements of Paragraph (3) of this rule shall be maintained for a minimum of 3 years and shall be made available to the Technical Secretary upon request.
(8) With respect to petitioning for a source-specific compliance schedule according to and as provided for in Rule 1200-03-18-.07 of this chapter, the owner or operator of an existing source as of August 11, 1996, shall insure the petition is received by the Technical Secretary no later than July 1 1996, rather than October 22, 1993.
(9) For any source which is subject to any Rule 1200-03-18-.11 through .21 or .24 through .79 of this chapter and which handles, stores, uses, or disposes of volatile organic compounds, the standards and requirements of that rule with respect to handling, storage, use, or disposal shall take precedence over standards and requirements in this Rule 1200-03-18-.06 with respect to handling, storage, use, and disposal.
