NITROGEN COMPOUND EMISSIONS


§ 123.51. Monitoring requirements.

 (a)  This section applies to combustion units with a rated heat input of 250 million Btus per hour or greater and with an annual average capacity factor of greater than 30%.

 (b)  Sources subject to this section shall install, operate and maintain continuous nitrogen oxides monitoring systems and other monitoring systems to convert data to required reporting units in compliance with Chapter 139, Subchapter C (relating to requirements for continuous in-stack monitoring for stationary sources).

 (c)  Sources subject to this section shall submit results on a regular schedule and in a format acceptable to the Department and in compliance with Chapter 139, Subchapter C.

 (d)  Continuous nitrogen oxides monitoring systems installed under the requirements of this section shall meet the minimum data availability requirements in Chapter 139, Subchapter C.

 (e)  The Department may exempt a source from the requirements of subsection (b) if the Department determines that the installation of a continuous emission monitoring system would not provide accurate determination of emissions or that installation of a continuous emission monitoring system cannot be implemented by a source due to physical plant limitations or to extreme economic reasons. A source exempted from the requirements of subsection (b) shall satisfy alternative emission monitoring and reporting requirements proposed by the source and approved by the Department which provide oxides emission data that is representative of actual emissions of the source.

 (f)  Sources subject to this section shall comply by October 20, 1993, unless the source becomes subject to the requirements later than October 20, 1990. For sources which become subject to the requirements after October 20, 1990, the source has 36 months from the date the source becomes subject to this section. The Department may issue orders providing a reasonable extension of time for sources that have made good faith efforts to install, operate and maintain continuous monitoring devices, but that have been unable to complete the operations within the time period provided.
