(1) Applicability of this rule is as follows:
(a) This rule applies to the sources at any facility in Davidson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson, or Wilson County for which the aggregate potential VOC emissions from the sources at the facility total 45.4 megagrams (Mg) (50 tons) or more per calendar year on or after November 15, 1996. In calculation to determine whether this applicability threshold is exceeded, potential VOC emissions from the following sources are not included:
1. Any sources subject to standards in Rules .11 through .77 of this chapter;

3. Any sources which are within the source categories listed in Subparagraph (c) of this paragraph.
(b) After publication of the notice specified in Paragraph (7) of this rule, the owner or operator of a facility which has potential VOC emissions which are below the applicability threshold of Subparagraph (a) of this paragraph, but which otherwise would be subject to this rule, shall comply with the certification, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements of Paragraph (4) of this rule.
(c) This rule will not apply to:

Barge loading facilities;

Coke ovens (including by-product recovery plants);

Fuel combustion sources;

Iron and steel production;

Jet engine test cells;

Vegetable oil processing facilities; and

Wastewater treatment facilities;

(d)

(e) The standards and requirements of this rule shall not apply to the following sources:
1. Sources subject to standards in Rules .11 through .77 and in Rule .79 of this chapter;
2. Sources subject to source-specific standards approved in lieu of standards in Rules .11 through .77 and in Rule .79 of this chapter; and
3. Sources which are within the source categories listed in Subparagraph (c) of this paragraph."
(2) After publication of the notice specified in Paragraph (7) of this rule, the owner or operator of any source subject to this rule shall:
(a) Install and operate:
1. An emission capture system which:
(i) Achieves 90 percent capture, or
(ii) Is constructed and operated in accordance with the guidelines of the Industrial Ventilation Manual, 20th Edition, of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists, and
2. An emission control device which achieves 90 percent destruction or removal.
(b) For any coating or printing line, limit the weighted average VOC content to 0.40 kilograms VOC per liter (kg VOC/L) 3.5 pounds VOC per gallon (lbvoc/gal) or less of coating or ink, as applied, (excluding water and/or exempt compounds) as calculated in this chapter; or
(c) Comply with a control plan that employs reasonably available control technology and has been approved as a state implementation plan revision. The control plan shall;
1. Be submitted by May 15, 1997; and
2. Be accompanied by a demonstration of the technical or economic infeasibility of complying with the requirements in Subparagraph (a) or (b) of this paragraph.
(3) After publication of the notice specified in Paragraph (7) of this rule, the owner or operator of any source subject to this rule shall demonstrate compliance with this paragraph by using the applicable test methods specified in this chapter.
(4) After publication of the notice specified in Paragraph (7) of this rule, reporting and recordkeeping requirements for sources referenced in Subparagraph (1)(b) of this rule apply as follow:
(a) An owner or operator shall maintain records which document potential VOC emissions are less than the applicability threshold specified in Subparagraph (1)(a) of this rule.
(b) An owner or operator shall submit, upon request by the Technical Secretary, records that document that the source is exempt from these requirements. These records shall be submitted to the Technical Secretary within 30 calendar days from the date of request.
(5) After publication of the notice specified in Paragraph (7) of this rule, compliance certification, reporting and recordkeeping, and testing requirements for sources other than those referenced in Subparagraph (1)(b) of this rule apply as follows:
(a) The owner or operator of the subject VOC source shall perform all testing and maintain the results of all test and calculations required under Paragraphs (2) and (3) of this rule to demonstrate that the subject source is in compliance.
(b) This owner or operator of the subject VOC source shall maintain these records for a minimum of 3 years, and shall make these records available to the Technical Secretary upon request.
(c) The owner or operator of any subject source shall comply with the requirements in Rule .03 or .04 of this chapter, as appropriate for such source, except that the date for compliance certification, initiation of recordkeeping and reporting, and completion of control system compliance testing shall be by November 15, 1997, rather than by April 22, 1994, as specified in Rules .03 and .04.
(6) After publication of the notice specified in Paragraph (7) of this rule, the owner or operator of a source which is an existing source as of November 15, 1996, or of a source which has a state or local agency's construction permit before November 15, 1996, and is subject to this rule may petition for a source-specific compliance schedule according to and as provided for in Rule .07 of this chapter. The April 22, 1993, date of Rule .07 shall not be pertinent for sources subject to Rule .78 of this chapter. For sources subject to Rule .78 of this chapter, the petition for the source-specific schedule must be received by the Technical Secretary no later than May 15, 1997.
(7) The standards and requirements of this rule shall apply only after the failure to attain by November 15, 1996, the ambient air quality standard for ozone in the counties listed in Subparagraph (1)(a) of this rule and after the Technical Secretary publishes legal notice of this failure in a major Nashville newspaper which has distribution throughout the five counties listed in Subparagraph (1)(a) of this rule.
