Document Description
The amendments to Rule 4354 will apply to all glass-melting furnaces located at stationary sources with a potential to emit, for all purposes, of 10 tons per year of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) or volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The purpose of amending Rule 4354 is to include RACT provisions for glass melting furnaces located at these facilities and to limit SOx emissions through limiting type of fuel. The furnaces are located within the boundaries of the San Joaquin Valley Unified Air Pollution Control District. The amendments to Rule 4703 will allow more than two hours for each start-up or shutdown and more than one hour for each reduced load period provided the operator submits a Permit to Operate and meets certain conditions that demonstrate the need for longer periods as specified in the proposed rule amendments. In addition, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Air Resources Board and APCO would determine the maximum allowable duration of start-up, shutdown, or reduced load periods. The amendments to Rule 4311 would apply to flares located at stationary sources with a potential to emit, for all processes, 10 tons per year of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) or volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
