The following is an estimate of overall potential emissions from the facility:

 

FACILITY-WIDE EMISSIONS SUMMARY [TONS PER YEAR]

Pollutants

Potential Emissions

Sulfur Dioxide (SO2)

3.2

Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx)

300.0

Total Particulate Matter (PM Total)

20.01

Total Particulate Matter less than 10 microns (PM10)

Total Particulate Matter less than 1.5 microns (PM2.5)

14.71

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs)

32.5

Carbon Monoxide (CO)

161.7

Total Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs)

3.18

This facility has the potential to emit 300.0 tons per year (TPY) of oxides of nitrogen (NOx). The value for this criteria pollutant exceeds the major source thresholds in the District of Columbia of 25 TPY of NOx. Because potential emissions of NOx exceed the relevant major source threshold, pursuant to 20 DCMR 300.1(a), the source is subject to Chapter 3 and must obtain an operating permit in accordance with that regulation and Title V of the federal Clean Air Act.

Description and Emission Information for Units Being Permitted for the First Time:

D.  An emission into the atmosphere of odorous or other air pollutants from any source in any quantity and of any characteristic, and duration which is, or is likely to be injurious to the public health or welfare, or which interferes with the reasonable enjoyment of life and property is prohibited. [20 DCMR 903.1]

E.   NOx and CO emissions shall not exceed those achieved with the performance of annual combustion adjustments on each boiler. To show compliance with this condition, the Permittee shall, each calendar year, perform adjustments of the combustion processes of the boilers with the following characteristics [20 DCMR 805.1(a)(4) and 805.8(a) and (b)]:

i.    Inspection, adjustment, cleaning or replacement of fuel burning equipment, including the burners and moving parts necessary for proper operation as specified by the manufacturer;
