c) Emissions from construction or operation of the facility must be shown
not to cause or contribute to air pollution in excess of the allowable increments or
allowable concentration more than once per year, any national ambient air quality
standard, or any applicable emission standard or standard of performance.
The facility is subject to best available control technology.
Class I areas are protected.
f) An analysis of air quality impacts projected for the area as a result of
growth associated with the facility is performed.
An agreement is reached to conduct necessary ambient air quality
126.96.36.199 De Minimis Amounts. Once a unit is determined to require a PSD permit, then
the review will extend to all pollutants which exceed the following "de minimis"
tons per year
Ozone (Volatile Organic Compounds)
Sulfuric Acid Mist
Total Reduced Sulfur (Including H2S)
Reduced Sulfur Compounds (Including H2S)
188.8.131.52 Best Available Control Technology. One of the PSD permit requirements listed
earlier was that the facility must be designed in accordance with best available control
technology (BACT). BACT requires the imposition of emission controls capable of at
applicable state emission limitations. Frequently, the BACT review will result in a
requirement will be applied on a pollutant-by-pollutant basis. BACT is required for
each pollutant emitted by a major source if the allowable emissions are in excess of de
minimis amounts specified above.
