7007.1120 REGISTRATION PERMIT OPTION B.

Subpart 1.

Eligibility.

The owners and operators of a stationary source may apply for a registration permit under this part if:

A.

the stationary source purchases or uses less than 2,000 gallons of VOC-containing materials on a calendar year basis;

B.

the only emissions from the stationary source are from VOC-containing materials, or are from insignificant activities under part 7007.1300, subparts 2 and 3, or are from conditionally insignificant activities meeting the requirements of parts 7008.4000 and 7008.4110; and

C.

the owner or operator does not anticipate making changes in the next 12 months which will cause the stationary source to purchase or use 2,000 gallons or more of VOC-containing materials on a calendar year basis.

Subp. 2.

Application content.

An application for a registration permit under this part must contain the following:

A.

information identifying the stationary source and its owners and operators, including company name and address (plant name and address if different from the company name), owner's name and agent, and contact telephone numbers, including names of plant site manager or contact, and the person preparing the application if different;

B.

a description of the stationary source's processes and products by Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code;

C.

a copy of the applicable new source performance standards (NSPS) listed in part 7007.1110, subpart 2, item C, with the applicable portions of the standards highlighted, including applicable parts of Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 60, subpart A, General Provisions, or an NSPS checklist form provided by the commissioner, for each affected facility as defined in Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, section 60.2;

D.

a statement of whether the owner or operator will base records required under subpart 3 on the purchase or use of VOC-containing materials; and

E.

the gallons of VOC-containing materials purchased or used in a calendar year. If the stationary source has not been operated, the owner or operator shall estimate the gallons of VOC-containing materials that will be purchased or used on a calendar year basis during normal operation using a worksheet provided by the commissioner. If the stationary source has been operated less than 12 months or has not been operated a full calendar year on the date of application under this part, the owner or operator shall calculate gallons of VOC-containing materials purchased or used by multiplying 12 months by the larger of the two following monthly averages:

(1)

the average monthly gallons purchased or used; or

(2)

the estimated average monthly gallons purchased or used for normal operation.

Insignificant activities at the stationary source listed in part 7007.1300, subparts 2 and 3, and conditionally insignificant activities are not required to be included in the application.

Subp. 3.

Compliance requirements.

The owner or operator of a stationary source issued a registration permit under this part shall:

A.

calculate and record by April 1 of each calendar year the total amount of VOC-containing materials purchased or used (whichever was stated in the permit application) during the previous calendar year;

B.

maintain the calculation itself and any receipts, invoices, or similar documents used to determine the total amount of VOC-containing materials purchased or used in item A;

C.

purchase or use (whichever was stated in the permit application) less than 2,000 gallons of VOC-containing materials each calendar year;

D.

have emissions from the stationary source only from VOC-containing materials or from insignificant activities under part 7007.1300, subparts 2 and 3, or from conditionally insignificant activities described in and meeting the requirements of parts 7008.4000 and 7008.4110;

E.

comply with part 7007.1110; and

F.

comply with all applicable requirements, including new source performance standards.

Subp. 4.

Calculation method.

For purposes of this part, "VOC-containing materials" include hazardous air pollutant-containing VOC. Under this part, gallons of VOC equals volume percentage of VOC multiplied by the gallons of VOC-containing material, except that if the owner or operator ships VOC off-site for recycling, the amount recycled may be subtracted from the amount of VOC used. "Recycling" means the reclamation or reuse, as defined in part 7045.0020, of a VOC. If the owner or operator ships VOC off-site for recycling, the owner or operator shall keep records of the amount of material shipped off-site for recycling and the calculations done to determine the amount to subtract. Records may be MSDS, invoices, shipping papers, or hazardous waste manifests.
