Title V: Operating permits 12 Kansas Air Quality Regulations KAR 28-19-1 -- 801 The Kansas Air Quality Act (KAQA) implements elements of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. It is administered by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) Bureau of Air and Radiation (BAR). 13
What must you evaluate? KAQA applicability and compliance Existing sources that are not permitted Proposed sources Existing sources that are permitted, when modifying or adding new equipment 14
Kansas air operating permits Construction permits or approvals (registrations) Class I operating permits (true major sources) Class II operating permits (potential major, actual area sources; limits PTE) Class III or registrations no longer in effect 15 Major source Stationary source with potential emissions of 100 tons/yr or more of regulated pollutant
(e.g., NOx, SOx, PM10, VOC, CO) 10 tons/yr of any single HAP 25 tons/yr of any combination of HAPs 16 Potential to emit (PTE) This is the maximum design capacity of a stationary source to emit a pollutant under its physical and operational design. Any physical or operational limitation shall be treated as part of the design Control equipment Hours of operation Amount of material
Stored Combusted Processed 17 PTE assumptions 24-hour operation, 365 days per year Operate at maximum capacity No pollution control devices or practices Bottlenecks can limit the PTE
18 Quiz Question If your facility only operates one shift, why calculate emissions as though you operate 24/7? 19 Quiz Answer Facilities are regulated based on their design not their
actual hours of operation. Production levels could change, and emissions would increase within existing facility. 20 Emission source any machine, equipment, device, or other article or operation that directly or indirectly releases contaminants into the outdoor atmosphere. Emission unit any part or activity of a stationary source that emits or would have the potential to emit any regulated pollutant or any pollutant listed under 42 U.S.C. 7412(b) of the federal Clean Air
Act. 21 What are emissions? Stack emissions Fugitive emissions (if a federally designated fugitive emission source) Other emissions 22 Identify each emissions unit A unit is an activity that emits or has the potential to emit. Emission units do not have to be
connected to a stack or vent. The entire facility can be viewed as an emissions unit. 23 Frequently overlooked emission sources Bleed valves Compressors Degassing (line, pump, vessel) Steam traps Process vents Pressure-relief
Cooling towers Loading operations Solid wastes Storm water runoff Wastewater collection and treatment Transfer operations 24
Emissions from activities Conveyors Tank truck loading and unloading Valves and vents Wastewater treatment plant emissions Material storage and transfer Evaporation Wind erosion
Haul roads 25 Other emissions to consider Degreasing tanks Welding activities Pumps Painting
Cleanup 26 What to leave out Categories of Exempt Activities
Fuel use Upkeep and maintenance Production operations Finishing operations Storage tanks Wastewater collection and treatment Cleaning operations Residential activities Recreational activities Health-care activities Miscellaneous 27
Quiz Question Do you calculate emissions from welding operations? 28 Quiz Answer Only if HAPs are emitted as a result of the welding. 29 PTE calculation methods
Material balance Emission factor Stack tests Other approved method 30 Steps for calculating PTE Identify each emission unit List all possible pollutants Quantify emissions (tons/year)
Material balance Emission factors 31 List all possible pollutants Nitrogen oxides (NOx) Sulfur oxides (SOx) Carbon monoxide (CO) Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) Particulate matter 10 microns or less (PM10) Hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) 32
Quantify emissions Material balance Emission factors EPAs AP42 factors Trade organization studies Performance tests 33 Fuel consumption Emissions from combustion can be calculated based on the fuel and equipment used. Rated heat capacity can be used.
Maximum rated fuel consumption can be used. 34 Material balance Product in = product out (assumes constant inventory) Example: solvent cleaning Solvent purchased = emissions Material balance can be applied to individual unit, activity, or entire source process. 35 Air construction permits
(Preconstruction approvals) Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permits Significance levels 100 ton/yr PTE for listed sources 250 ton/yr PTE for all other sources Construction permits KAR 28-19-300(a) Construction approvals KAR 28-19-300(b) 36 Construction permits when? If PTE threshold is met because of New construction
Modification of existing emission unit Change in method of operation Emissions unit is major HAP source or incinerator 37 What ISNT a modification? Routine maintenance, repair, or replacement Switching fuel specific cases Increase in production rate or hours as long as not prohibited by permit Change in ownership
38 Construction approvals (registrations) when? Emissions exceed thresholds Emissions unit is subject to NSPS NESHAP/MACT 39 Class I permits Combines all air quality requirements into single permit (corrects and modifies previous permits and approvals)
Requires sources to review and correct air quality requirements Requires annual air emission inventory submissions 40 Class I permits (cont.) Establishes recordkeeping, monitoring, and testing requirements Establishes semi-annual reporting and annual compliance certification Federally enforceable 41
Class I permit who needs it? Major source Affected source Subject to New Source Performance Standard (NSPS) Subject to 112(r), prevention of accidental releases Designated by the secretary 42 Quiz Question I think our facility needs a permit and I dont think we have one but Im not sure.
What do I do? 43 Quiz Answer Work with us and KDHE. KDHE will work with you but if legally required to impose a fine, they will have to do it. Still, better to get it resolved right away. 44 Class I renewals KDHE has a special form for Class I renewal applications.
New forms may be required if operations have significant changes. Submit application six to18 months prior to expiration of current permit. Contact KDHE for more information. 45 Limiting PTE Any physical or operational limitation on the capacity of the source to emit a pollutant, including air pollution control equipment and restrictions on hours of operation or on the type or amount of material combusted, stored, or processed, shall be treated as part of the design if the
limitation or effect it would have on emissions is federally enforceable. 46 Common methods of reducing PTE Pollution prevention Limit process rates Limit hours of operation Limit amount of material processed or combusted
Add pollution control equipment Emission limit required by a regulation Combination of these 47 Regulatory limits Regulations that are part of the state implementation plan (SIP) Class II permits New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP/MACT) Other federal regulations

Class II general permits Source proposes restrictions used to limit emissions Material purchased, used, or processed Hours of operation Control equipment Other restriction KDHE has specific forms for several processes and equipment. Recordkeeping 52 Class II Permit Application
Process/Equipment Description Form 53 Class II rock crushers (PM10) Special case of Class II permits Applies to portable or stationary facilities Select dry or controlled operation 54 Class II permit-by-rule for reciprocating engines with capacity less than
730 HP, or 550 kW, or 5.1 million Btu/hr input Or, limit hours or fuel input and maintain records 55 Class II permit-by-rule for organic solvent evaporative sources that purchase or use less than (in any consecutive 12-month period) 9 tons of VOCs or HAPs 90 tons of VOCs, or 22.5 tons of combination of HAPs, or 9 ton of a single HAP, and maintain records
56 Class II organic solvent evaporative sources Facility must Maintain on-site records, updated monthly Submit annual report of usage Report to KDHE if exceeds 85% of any restriction in a quarter Submit compliance plan if fails to meet any requirement 57
Example Calculations Solvent evaporative source 58 Recordkeeping varies look at your permit Rolling 12-month totals Total is calculated every month Not based on calendar year, based on last 12 months Example: total as of March 31, 2007 would be sum of emissions from April 1, 2006 through March 31, 2007
Quarterly totals these are based on calendar quarters, which end in March, June, September, and December 59 Class II permit-by-rule for hot-mix asphalt Control particulate emissions Limit production to <250,000 ton (12month rolling total) Maintain records 60 Permit-by-rule, 50% rule
For facilities with actual emissions less than 50% of major source thresholds For facilities with actual emissions between 25% and 50% of major source thresholds 61 NESHAP/MACT 1970 Section 112 provisionsnational emission standards for hazardous air pollutants (NESHAP) EPA had to identify hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and identify standards to prevent any adverse human health effects with ample margin of safety. All were risk-based.
Courts directed EPA to determine safe air pollutant levels without technological or cost concerns. 1990smaximum achievable control technology (MACT) Congress saw setting health-based standards as too long and difficult, so initiated new technology-based standards. 62 NESHAP/MACT sources Generally major HAP sources, with a few exceptions New sources must install Best Available Control Technology; comply upon startup Existing sources must meet emission
limits of top 12% of controlled units; comply within three years of promulgation 63 General MACT requirements Initial notification Recordkeeping and reporting Malfunctions plus periodic startup and shutdowns must be reported. KDHE has adopted all MACT standards through July 1, 2003 (K.A.R. 28-19-750); submit reports for these to KDHE, copying EPA. List of MACTs
