7007.1140 CAPPED PERMIT ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS.

Subpart 1.

Sources that may obtain a capped permit.

Owners and operators of a stationary source that qualifies for capped permit option 1 under part 7007.1141, subpart 1, or capped permit option 2 under part 7007.1141, subpart 2, may elect to apply to the commissioner for a capped permit instead of a part 70, state, registration, or general permit, except as provided in item B. The owners and operators of a stationary source may apply for a capped permit under this part if the stationary source meets the following criteria:

A.

The owners and operators apply for capped permit option 1 or capped permit option 2 and meet the requirements of subitems (1) or (2).

(1)

For option 1, all emissions units at the stationary source are either included in calculations in part 7007.1146; are insignificant activities under part 7007.1300, subpart 2; or are insignificant activities under part 7007.1300, subpart 3, for which emission factors or other calculation methods do not exist.

(2)

For option 2, all emissions units at the stationary source are either included in calculations in part 7007.1146, or are insignificant activities under part 7007.1300, subpart 2 or 3, or are conditionally insignificant activities described in chapter 7008.

B.

The 12-month rolling sum of actual emissions at the stationary source for each pollutant is less than or equal to the thresholds in option 1 or option 2. If the source has not been operated or has operated for less than 12 months, the 12-month sum of estimated actual emissions is less than or equal to the thresholds in part 7007.1141.

C.

The owner or operator does not anticipate making changes in the next year which will cause the stationary source's 12-month rolling sum of actual emissions to exceed any threshold in tons per year listed in part 7007.1141.

D.

The owner or operator complies with part 7007.1148, ambient air quality assessment.

Subp. 2.

Sources that may not obtain a capped permit.

A.

Owners and operators of a stationary source may not obtain a capped permit if they are required to obtain a permit under parts 7007.0200, subpart 3, acid rain affected sources; 7007.0200, subpart 4, solid waste incinerators and waste combustors; 7007.0200, subpart 5, other part 70 sources; 7007.0250, subpart 3, state implementation plan required state permit; or 7007.0250, subpart 6, waste combustors.

B.

A stationary source may not obtain a capped permit if air quality specific conditions or limits not contained in parts 7007.1140 to 7007.1148 were assumed:

(1)

as a mitigation measure in an environmental impact statement;

(2)

in obtaining a negative declaration in an environmental assessment worksheet; or

(3)

in demonstrating compliance with any state or national ambient air quality standards.

C.

A stationary source may not obtain a capped permit if it produces fuel grade ethanol or if a sector-based state general permit is available except as allowed under part 7007.1100, subpart 2.

D.

A stationary source may not obtain a capped permit if the commissioner determines site-specific permit requirements are needed to ensure compliance with applicable requirements or to protect human health or the environment.

E.

No stationary source may obtain a capped permit if it is subject to a new source performance standard other than one of the following:
