GENERALLY

7011.0010 APPLICABILITY OF STANDARDS OF PERFORMANCE.

Subpart 1.

Existing facility.

An owner or operator of an existing emission facility shall comply with all applicable state air pollution control rules for existing emission facilities.

Subp. 2.

New facility.

An owner or operator who constructs, modifies, or reconstructs an emission facility shall comply with the New Source Performance Standards, if applicable, and the standards of performance for a new emission facility set forth in the state air pollution control rules. However, if the administrator has determined a state standard of performance to be of equal or superior environmental protection compared to the New Source Performance Standards, then the owner or operator need only comply with the state standard of performance. "Administrator" has the meaning given in part 7007.0100, subpart 3.

Subp. 3.

Exception.

For the purpose of the state air pollution control rules, the use of an alternative type of fuel or raw material is not a modification if the existing facility was designed to accommodate the alternative type of fuel or raw material. An emission facility is considered to be designed to accommodate an alternative type of fuel or raw material if that use could be accomplished under the facility's construction specifications as amended prior to the change.

Subp. 4.

Opacity standards.

The opacity standards in an applicable requirement apply at all times except during periods of start-up, shutdown, and malfunction, and as otherwise provided in an applicable requirement or compliance document as defined in parts 7007.0100 and 7017.2005. The exemption for periods of start-up, shutdown, and malfunction applies only if:

A.

at all times, including periods of start-up, shutdown, or malfunction, the owner or operator, to the extent practicable, maintains and operates the affected emission facility and air pollution control equipment in a manner consistent with good operating practice for the installed equipment design. Determination of whether acceptable operating and maintenance procedures are being used shall be based on, among other information, monitoring results, opacity observations, review of operating and maintenance procedures, and inspection of the source;

B.

the owner or operator complies with parts 7019.1000 and 7019.2000 in the event of a shutdown, breakdown, or malfunction; and

C.

the applicable requirement or compliance document does not state that the opacity standard applies during such conditions.

Subp. 5.

Transition to new opacity averaging method.

All permits issued before July 27, 1998, are amended to reflect the amendments to this chapter adopted on July 27, 1998, that are related to opacity averaging and excursions.

7011.0070 LISTED CONTROL EQUIPMENT AND CONTROL EQUIPMENT EFFICIENCIES.

Subpart 1.

Listed control equipment efficiencies.

A.

Unless a part 70, state, or general permit specifies a different control efficiency, the owner or operator of a stationary source must at all times attain at least the control efficiency listed in Table A for each piece of listed control equipment at the stationary source. The applicable control efficiency for a type of listed control equipment and a given pollutant is determined by whether air emissions are discharged to the control equipment through a hood that is certified as described in part 7011.0072, through a noncertified hood, or through a total enclosure. The control equipment efficiencies in Table A do not apply to any hazardous air pollutant.

B.

The use of the control efficiencies listed in Table A under subpart 1a that are associated with a hood that is not certified is limited to the owner or operator of a stationary source that qualifies for a registration permit under parts 7007.1110 to 7007.1130.

Subp. 1a.

Exceptions where control efficiency disallowed.

The owner or operator may not use a control efficiency listed in Table A if:

A.

the commissioner determines that the listed efficiency is inapplicable or is not representative of the source due to complexity of the process or source of emissions, lack of reliable data, presence of a pollutant or constituent such as organic or inorganic condensable particulate matter or an organic compound significantly more difficult to control than the overall VOC gas stream that makes the categorical efficiency nonrepresentative, or other site-specific conditions; or

B.

the commissioner determines that alternate site-specific requirements are necessary to ensure compliance with applicable requirements or to protect human health or the environment.

When combinations of fuels are fired, the F factors determined by item C or D shall be prorated in accordance with the following formula:

xF1 + yF2 + zF3
F = _
100

where:

x = the percentage of total heat input derived from gaseous fossil fuel;

y = the percentage of total heat input derived from liquid fossil fuel;

z = the percentage of total heat input derived from solid fossil fuel;

F1 = the value of F for gaseous fossil fuels according to item D or E;

When combinations of fossil fuels are fired, the actual heat input, expressed in cal/hr (Btu/hr), shall be determined during each testing period. The rate of fuels burned during each testing period shall be determined by suitable methods and shall be confirmed by a material balance over the indirect heating system.

Subp. 8.

Alternate method.

When the emission factor cannot be calculated by means of the method outlined in subpart 7, the emission factors for all pollutants for all new and existing indirect heating equipment expressed in nanograms/joule (lb/million Btu) shall be determined by the following procedure:

Et
E = __
Z

where:

E = pollutant emissions, in nanograms/joule (lb/million Btu);

Et = pollutant emission rate, in nanograms/hr (lb/hr), determined by Method 5; and

z = actual heat input, in joules/hr, (million Btu/hr).

The initial test must be conducted by the applicable compliance deadline in subpart 4. Owners or operators may conduct performance stack tests for mercury no less frequently than once every three years, but no longer than 37 months after the previous performance test, if: (i) the performance tests for at least the immediately preceding three consecutive years show mercury reduction is greater than or equal to 85 percent; or (ii) mercury emissions are at or below 1.2 pounds of mercury per Tbtu of heat input; and, in both cases, if there are no changes in the operation of the EGU or air pollution control equipment that could increase emissions. The owner or operator must resume annual performance stack tests if the test results show mercury reduction is less than 85 percent or mercury emissions are above 1.2 pounds of mercury per Tbtu of heat input. Subitems (1) to (3) apply to performance testing conducted under this item.

(1)

Performance testing must be conducted using Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 60, Appendix A-8, Method 30B. The initial performance test must be conducted for 30 boiler operating days under all process operating conditions. Sorbent traps must be used no longer than ten boiler operating days. Subsequent performance tests may be ten boiler operating days long.

(2)

Compliance is determined by calculating the average mercury concentration from all sorbent trap results.

(3)

(4)

a description of calculations used to convert mercury concentration values to the appropriate units of the emission standard; and

(5)

procedures to provide substituted data in the event that monitors are not collecting mercury emissions data and data is missing from the monitoring record.

B.

The CEMS must operate in compliance with parts 7017.0100, 7017.1002, 7017.1030, 7017.1080 to 7017.1130, 7017.1150, and 7017.1180.

C.

Owners or operators must conduct routine quality assurance and control tests on a frequency as follows:

(1)

a calibration error test must be conducted daily using either mid- or high-level gas. The calibrations are not required when the EGU is not in operation;

(2)

single-level system integrity checks must be conducted weekly, meaning once every seven consecutive operating days for systems with mercury converters. This test is not required if daily calibrations are done with a National Institute of Standards and Technology-traceable source of oxidized mercury;

(3)

linearity checks or three-level system integrity checks must be conducted quarterly in each quality-assured operating quarter and no less than once every four calendar quarters;

(4)

a relative accuracy test audit is required annually, meaning once every four quality-assured operating quarters. This deadline may be extended for non-quality-assured operating quarters up to a maximum of eight quarters from the quarter of the previous test; and

(5)

a 720 operating-hour grace period is allowed for relative accuracy test audits.

D.

Calibration gas mercury concentrations used to conduct quality assurance tests on a CEMS must have the following concentrations:

(1)

zero-level with a mercury concentration below the detectable limit of the analyzer;

(2)

low-level with a mercury concentration of 20 to 30 percent of the span value of the analyzer;

(3)

mid-level with a mercury concentration of 50 to 60 percent of the span value of the analyzer;

(4)

high-level with a mercury concentration of 80 to 100 percent of the span value of the analyzer; and

(5)

alternative concentrations may be used if approved by the commissioner. The data collected with the alternative concentration must be improved, given the applicable limit to qualify for approval.

E.

Measurement or adjustment of the CEMS mercury data for bias is not required.

F.

H.

The owners or operators must convert hourly emissions concentrations to 30 boiler operating day rolling average (lb/Tbtu) according to appropriate emission rate equations of Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 60, Appendix A-7, Method 19.

I.

Using fuel sampling data generated by the procedures in subpart 8, the owners or operators must demonstrate that the output from item G is no greater than ten percent of the input from fuel or demonstrate that emissions in item H are no greater than those specified in subpart 4.

J.

The first 30 days of the monitoring period are used to determine compliance with the mercury emissions concentration limit.

Subp. 7.

Monitoring provisions; sorbent trap monitoring system.

A.

Owners or operators of a coal-fired EGU using a sorbent trap monitoring system must follow the monitoring provisions under this subpart for the measurement of mercury. "Sorbent trap monitoring system" means the equipment necessary to monitor mercury emissions continuously by using paired sorbent traps containing iodated charcoal or other sorbent medium. The system consists of sample acquisition, transport, conditioning, sorbent traps, and an automated data acquisition and handling system. The system samples the stack gas at a constant proportional rate relative to the stack gas volumetric flow rate. The sampling is a batch process. The average mercury concentration in the stack gas for the sampling period is determined, in units of micrograms per dry standard cubic meter (μg/dscm), based on the sample volume measured by the gas flow meter and the mass of mercury collected in the sorbent traps. The use of a sorbent trap monitoring system also requires the installation and certification of a stack gas flow monitor to maintain the ratio of stack gas flow rate to sample flow rate.

B.

The monitoring plan for the sorbent trap monitoring system must include:

(1)

methods, procedures, equations, and performance specifications, both main and alternate, to be used to conduct a certification test of the sorbent trap monitoring system;

(2)

methods, procedures, equations, and performance specifications, both main and alternate, to be used for ongoing relative accuracy test audits;

(3)

the rationale for the minimum acceptable data collection period for the size of the sorbent trap selected;

(4)

procedures used to monitor system integrity and data quality;

(5)

a description of calculations used to convert mercury concentration values to the appropriate units of the emission standard;

(6)

procedures for inscribing or permanently marking a unique identification number on each sorbent trap for tracking purposes. A record system must be developed to track the identification of the monitoring system along with dates and hours for each collection period; and

(7)

procedures for providing substituted data in the event that monitors are not available to measure mercury emissions and data is missing from the monitoring record.

C.

The continuous monitor must be operated in compliance with parts 7017.0100, 7017.1002, 7017.1030, 7017.1080 to 7017.1130, 7017.1150, and 7017.1180.

D.

Monitoring systems that are used to measure stack gas volumetric flow rate, diluent gas concentration, or stack gas moisture content, either for routine operation of a sorbent trap monitoring system or to convert mercury concentration data to units of the applicable emission limit, must be certified according to the applicable provisions of Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 75.

E.

The owners or operators must determine the mercury concentration for each data collection period and assign this concentration value to each operating hour in the data collection period.

F.

The owners or operators must convert hourly emissions concentrations to 30 boiler operating day rolling average (lb/Tbtu) according to appropriate emission rate equations of Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 60, Appendix A-7, Method 19.

G.

Using fuel sampling data generated by the procedures in subpart 8, the owners or operators must demonstrate that the output from item F meets the limits specified in subpart 4.

H.

The first 30 days of the monitoring period is the first period used to determine compliance with the mercury emissions concentration limit.

Subp. 8.

Procedures for determining mercury content of fuel.

The owner or operator shall prepare a fuel sampling and analysis plan and submit it to the commissioner 30 days prior to collecting the initial fuel sample. When the mercury content of fuel is needed to determine total mercury emission reductions, owners or operators of a coal-fired EGU must use the fuel sampling and measuring fuel content procedures in items A to E. The mercury content of fuel used for start-up, unit shutdown, or transient flame stability does not need to be measured. The owners or operators must:

A.

collect samples of each fuel using ASTM D2234/D2234M;

B.

prepare a composited sample for each fuel type using ASTM D2013/D2013M;

C.

determine the heat content of the fuel using ASTM D5865;

D.

determine the moisture content of the fuel using ASTM D3173; and

E.

measure mercury in the fuel sample using ASTM D6722-11, or SW-846-7471 for solid samples, and report in terms of lb/ton of fuel burned.

Subp. 9.

Demonstrating applicability of mercury control requirements.

The owners or operators of a coal-fired EGU without a continuous monitor for mercury must conduct a 28 to 30 operating day performance test to determine the mercury mass emissions according to this subpart. The initial test must be completed within one year of September 29, 2014. The owner or operator must:

A.

conduct performance tests according to parts 7017.2001 to 7017.2060. When preparing the test plan required in part 7017.2030, the owner or operator must identify parametric data for air pollution control devices in place during the performance test that will be recorded;

B.

use Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 60, Appendix A-8, Method 30B, or a substantially similar alternative method approved by the commissioner;

C.

locate the Method 30B sampling probe tip at a point within the ten percent centroidal area of the duct at a location selected according to Method 1 in Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 60, Appendix A-1, and conduct at least three nominally equal length test runs over the 28- to 30-day test period. Test runs may not be longer than ten days;

D.

collect diluents gas data over the corresponding time period using Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 60, Appendix A-2, Method 3A, or a diluent gas monitor certified according to Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 75;

E.

for calculation of pounds per year of mercury, collect:

(1)

stack gas flow rate using Method 2, 2F, or 2G in Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 60, Appendix A-1 or A-2, or a flow rate monitor that has been certified according to Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 75; and

(2)

moisture data using Method 4 in Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 60, Appendix A-3, or a moisture monitor certified according to Code of Federal Regulations, title 40, part 75;

F.

calculate the average mercury concentration, in micrograms per cubic meter (μg/m3), for the 28- to 30-day performance test, as the arithmetic average of all sorbent trap results. The owner or operator must calculate the average CO2 or O2 concentration for the test period. The owner or operator must use the average mercury concentration and diluents gas values to express the performance test results in units of pounds of mercury per trillion British thermal units (lb/Tbtu) and actual pounds of mercury emitted per year, using the expected fuel heat input over a one-year period. Alternatively, the owner or operator must calculate pounds of mercury emitted per year using the average mercury concentration, average stack gas flow rate, average stack gas moisture, and maximum operating hours per year;

G.

record parametric data for air pollution control devices in place during the performance test. If the calculation in item F demonstrates that the EGU emits less than five pounds per year of mercury, the owner or operator must operate air pollution control equipment at the rates exhibited during the performance test; and

H.

repeat the performance test once every five years to demonstrate that the mercury emissions from the EGU remain below five pounds per year.

INDUSTRIAL PROCESS EQUIPMENT

7011.0700 DEFINITIONS.

Subpart 1.

Scope.

As used in parts 7011.0700 to 7011.0735, the following words shall have the meanings defined herein.

Subp. 2.

Collection efficiency.

"Collection efficiency" means the percent of the total amount of particulate matter entering the control equipment which is removed from the exhaust stream by the control equipment and is calculated by the following equation:

100(A - B)
collection efficiency = _
A

where:

A = the amount (grams or pounds) or the concentration (gr/SCF) of particulate matter entering the collection equipment; and

B = the amount (grams or pounds) or the concentration (gr/SCF) of particulate matter leaving the control equipment.

Subp. 3.

Industrial process equipment.

"Industrial process equipment" means any equipment, apparatus, or device embracing chemical, industrial, or manufacturing facilities such as ovens, mixing kettles, heating and reheating furnaces, kilns, stills, dryers, roasters, and equipment used in connection therewith, and all other methods or forms of manufacturing or processing that may emit any air contaminant such as smoke, odor, particulate matter, or gaseous matter. Industrial process equipment is an affected facility. An emission facility may consist of more than one unit of industrial process equipment.

Subp. 4.

Process weight.

"Process weight" means the total weight in a given time period of all materials introduced into any industrial process equipment that may cause any emission of particulate matter. Solid fuels charged are considered as part of the process weight, but liquid and gaseous fuels and combustion air are not. For a cyclical or batch operation, the process weight per hour is derived by dividing the total process weight by the number of hours in one complete operation from the beginning of any given process to the completion thereof, excluding any time during which the equipment is idle. For a continuous operation, the process weight per hour is derived by dividing the process weight for a typical period of time.

7011.1215 APPLICABILITY OF STANDARDS OF PERFORMANCE FOR WASTE COMBUSTORS.

Subpart 1.

Waste combustors.

A person who constructs, modifies, reconstructs, or operates a waste combustor shall comply with parts 7011.1201 to 7011.1294, except as provided in subparts 2 to 3.

Subp. 2.

Cofired facilities.

A person who constructs, modifies, reconstructs, or operates a cofired unit is not a waste combustor under parts 7011.1201 to 7011.1285.

Subp. 2a.

Units combusting tires or fuel derived from tires.

A waste combustor burning a single-item waste stream of tires or fuel derived from tires is not subject to parts 7011.1201 to 7011.1294 if the owner or operator notifies the commissioner in writing of its intent to combust only tires, and provides data documenting that the unit qualifies for this exemption.

Subp. 2b.

Units combusting waste contaminated with used oil.

An owner of a solid-fuel-fired indirect or direct heating source burning fossil fuel with only wastes contaminated with used oil generated by the owner is not subject to parts 7011.1201 to 7011.1294.

Subp. 2c.

Commercial and industrial solid waste incinerators.

A person who constructs, modifies, or reconstructs a waste combustor such that it becomes a commercial or industrial solid waste incinerator is not subject to parts 7011.1225 to 7011.1285 but shall comply with parts 7011.1360 to 7011.1370.

Subp. 3.

Exemptions from standards of performance.

Crematoria, pathological waste combustors, and waste combustors used solely for the disposal of animal carcasses are exempt from the requirements of parts 7011.1210 to 7011.1294, and shall meet the conditions of this subpart.

A.

No owner or operator of a crematorium, pathological waste combustor unit, or waste combustor unit used solely for the disposal of animal carcasses shall cause to be emitted into the atmosphere gases which are greater than 20 percent opacity.

B.

Waste combustor owners and operators shall install and operate an afterburner which maintains flue gases at 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 0.3 seconds.

C.

Ash shall be stored and transported in such a manner to prevent avoidable amounts of particulate matter to become airborne.

Subp. 4.

Standards.

A.

The standards of parts 7011.1227, 7011.1228, 7011.1229, 7011.1230, 7011.1233, 7011.1240, subpart 2, and 7011.1272, subpart 2, apply at all times when waste is being continuously burned, except during periods of start-up, shutdown, or malfunction, provided that the duration of start-up, shutdown, or malfunction does not exceed three hours. Fugitive emissions standards applicable to ash conveying systems do not apply during maintenance and repair of ash conveying systems. "Malfunction" means any sudden and unavoidable failure of air pollution control equipment or process equipment or of a process to operate in a normal or usual manner. Failures that are caused entirely or in part by poor maintenance, careless operation, or any other preventable upset condition or preventable equipment breakdown are not considered malfunctions.

B.

The start-up period commences when the waste combustor begins the continuous burning of solid waste and does not include any warm-up period when the waste combustor is combusting fossil fuel or other solid fuel.

C.

Continuous burning is the continuous, semicontinuous, or batch feeding of solid waste for purposes of waste disposal, energy production, or providing heat to the combustion system in preparation for waste disposal or energy production. The use of solid waste solely to provide thermal protection of the grate or hearth during the start-up period when municipal solid waste is not being fed to the grate is not considered to be continuous burning.

Subp. 5.

Transition for Class A waste combustors.

The application of the waste combustor standards to Class A waste combustors are described in this subpart.

A.

Class A waste combustors shall demonstrate compliance with parts 7011.1201 to 7011.1290 by July 17, 1998, except that the conditions of part 7011.1240, subpart 1, shall be met according to the schedule in part 7011.1240, subpart 1a.

B.

If the Class A waste combustor cannot comply with these waste combustor standards by July 17, 1998, the waste combustor shall cease operating on July 17, 1998.

For emissions for which a performance test is conducted, data is accurate and valid 14 days after the incinerator owners or operators receive the performance test report, unless the incinerator owners or operators notify the commissioner in writing within the same 14 days that the owners or operators can show reason for rejecting the data.

B.

"Normal start-up" means the period of time between the initial start-up of a new, modified, retrofitted, or reconstructed emissions unit of an incinerator or an emissions unit of an incinerator that is modified, retrofitted, or reconstructed to meet the requirements of parts 7011.1360 to 7011.1370 and the lesser of 60 days after achieving the maximum production rate at which the emissions unit will operate or 180 days after initial start-up.

Subp. 3.

Exceedance of continuously monitored emission limits.

If, after normal start-up, accurate and valid data results collected from continuous emission monitors exceed emission limits established in part 7011.1350, item B; 7011.1355, subpart 2; 7011.1365; or 7011.1370, subpart 1, or in the permit for the incinerator, the incinerator owner or operator must:

A.

report the exceedance to the commissioner as soon as reasonably possible, giving consideration to matters of plant or worker safety or access to communications;

B.

commence appropriate repairs or modifications to return the incinerator to compliance within 72 hours of the exceedance;

C.

shut down the incinerator if the modification or repairs cannot be completed within 72 hours of the exceedance; and

D.

when repairs or modifications have been completed, demonstrate to the commissioner that the incinerator is in compliance. The incinerator may be started up after the owner or operator has notified the commissioner in writing of the date the owner or operator plans to start up the incinerator. Notification must be given at least 24 hours before resuming operation. Compliance is demonstrated by providing to the commissioner written results from the continuous monitor showing compliance with the emission limits.

Subp. 4.

Exceedance of emission limits determined through performance testing.

A.

If, after normal start-up, accurate and valid data results of a performance test demonstrate an exceedance of an emissions limit established in part 7011.1355, subpart 2; 7011.1365; or 7011.1370, subpart 1, or in the facility air emissions permit, the owners or operators of an incinerator must:

7011.1430 PERFORMANCE TEST PROCEDURES.

Subpart 1.

In general.

Performance tests shall be conducted according to the requirements of this part and parts 7017.2001 to 7017.2060.

Subp. 2.

Sampling time.

For Method 5, the sampling time for each run shall be at least 60 minutes and the sampling rate shall be at least 0.015 dscm (0.53 dscf/min), except that shorter sampling times may be approved by the agency when process variable or other factors preclude sampling for at least 60 minutes.

Subp. 3.

Extraction rate.

For Method 10, the sample shall be extracted at a rate proportional to the gas velocity at a sampling point near the centroid of the duct. The sampling time shall not be less than 60 minutes.

Subp. 4.

Introducing gases into sampling train.

For Method 11, when refinery fuel gas lines are operating at pressures substantially above atmospheric, the gases sampled must be introduced into the sampling train at approximately atmospheric pressure. This may be accomplished with a flow control valve. If the line pressure is high enough to operate the sampling train without a vacuum pump, the pump may be eliminated from the sampling train. The sample shall be drawn from a point near the centroid of the fuel gas line. The minimum sampling time shall be ten minutes and the minimum sampling volume 0.01 dscm (0.35 dscf) for each sample. The arithmetic average of two samples shall constitute one run. Samples shall be taken at approximately one-hour intervals. For most fuel gases, sample times exceeding 20 minutes may result in depletion of the collecting solution, although fuel gases containing low concentrations of hydrogen sulfide may necessitate sampling for longer periods of time.

Subp. 5.

Sampling to determine SO2 concentration.

The sampling site for determining SO2 concentration by Method 6 shall be the same as for determining volumetric flow rate by Method 2. The sampling point in the duct for determining SO2 concentration by Method 6 shall be at the centroid of the cross section if the cross sectional area is less than 5 m2 (54 ft2) or at a point no closer to the walls than 1 meter (39 inches) if the cross sectional area is 5 m2 or more and the centroid is more than one meter from the wall. The sample shall be extracted at a rate proportional to the gas velocity at the sampling point. The minimum sampling time shall be ten minutes and the minimum sampling volume 0.01 dscm (0.35 dscf) for each sample. The arithmetic average of two samples shall constitute one run. Samples shall be taken at approximately one-hour intervals.

Subp. 6.
