Tenn. Comp. R. & Regs. 1200-03-27-.03 - STANDARDS AND REQUIREMENTS

(1) Emission standards for sources of nitrogen oxides apply as follows:
(a) Any owner or operator of a stationary source in Davidson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson, or Wilson County which emits or has the potential to emit 100 tons per year or more of nitrogen oxides (NOx) before control shall apply reasonably available control technology (RACT) to control NOx emissions from that source; and
(b) Specifically, the owner of operator of a tangentially-fired coal burning boiler having heat input capacity in excess of 600 million BTU per hour in Davidson, Rutherford, Sumner, Williamson, or Wilson County shall not allow emissions of nitrogen oxides from that boiler in excess of 0.45 pound per million BTU (30-day rolling average) (RACT).
(2) In calculation to determine whether the 100-ton-per-year threshold specified in Subparagraph (1)(a) of this rule is met, the nitrogen oxides contribution from all process emissions sources and fuel burning equipment, including those sources and that equipment listed for exemption in Paragraph (4) of this rule, shall be totaled.
(3) Compliance schedules apply as follows:
(a) The owner or operator of a boiler subject to the requirements of Subparagraph (1)(b) of this rule shall:
1. Submit a final control plan, acceptable to the Technical Secretary, for the installation of nitrogen oxides emission control systems and/or modifications of fuel burning equipment to the Technical Secretary by April 26, 1994;
2. Complete construction or installation of equipment by May 31, 1995; and
3. Demonstrate full compliance with nitrogen oxides reasonably available control technology by July 31, 1995, using approved test methods and procedures; and
(b) The owner or operator of any process emission source or fuel burning equipment subject to the requirements of Subparagraph (1)(a) but not Subparagraph (1) (b) of this rule shall either:
1. Satisfy the schedule as follows:
(i) Submit a demonstrations of appropriate reasonably available control technology by February 25, 1994;
(ii) Submit a final control plan, acceptable to the Technical Secretary, for the installation of nitrogen oxides emission control systems and/or modifications of the source or equipment to the Technical Secretary by April 26, 1994;
(iii) Complete construction or installation of equipment by May 31, 1995; and
(iv) Demonstrate full compliance with nitrogen oxides reasonably available control technology by July 31, 1995, using approved test methods and procedures; or
2. In lieu of satisfying the schedule specified in Part 1 of this subparagraph, satisfy the schedule as follows:
(i) By February 25, 1994, submit a demonstration, acceptable to the Technical Secretary, that reasonably available control technology for nitrogen oxides from the process emission source or fuel burning equipment according to the schedule specified in Part 1 of this subparagraph is not practicable, for example, due to equipment unavailability or system unreliability;
(ii) Within 60 days after approval by the Technical Secretary of this demonstration, submit a schedule, acceptable to the Technical Secretary, containing dates for accomplishment on the process emission source or fuel burning equipment of the steps listed in the schedule specified in Part 1 of this subparagraph; and
(iii) Satisfy the schedule approved by the Technical Secretary.
(4) The reasonably available control technology requirements of this rule shall not apply to any of the following:
(a) A process emission source or fuel burning installation which neither emits nor has the potential to emit one ton or more per year of nitrogen oxides before control;
(b) Fuel burning equipment or a component of a process emission source which does not operate between April 1 and October 31; or
(c) An air pollution control device which is installed to effect compliance with a requirement of other chapters of Division 1200-03.
