††††††††††††††††††† (1)†††† The department has substantial actual experience with or knowledge of the specific class of sources proposed for exemption, that such experience or knowledge is material to the application for exemption, and that such experience or knowledge includes modeling and analysis of a representative sample of such sources.Such knowledge may be acquired through, but not limited to, direct department experience with such sources, or the review of other regulatory agencies' experience, records, documentation and formal actions, or through publications of professional organizations and societies upon which engineers and scientists would conventionally rely in formulating a professional judgment;

††††††††††††††††††† (2)†††† The sources possess sufficiently common characteristics of operation, process technology, emissions, emission control technology and impact on air quality that with respect to the specific requirements proposed to be exempted, protocols have been developed which, if applied to all members of that class, will ensure that air quality is protected at least as well as would be accomplished by the full permit review process; and

††††††††††††††††††† (3)†††† Under such an exemption, compliance with all federal and state air quality laws, regulations, standards and emissions limitations will be assured.

††††††††††††††† B.††††††††††† Exemptions may apply statewide or regionally and may be revoked by the board only after a public hearing following at least sixty days public notice.

††††††††††††††† C.††††††††††† As may be required under federal law, all protocols established hereunder shall be submitted to the US EPA for review and approval as revisions to the State Implementation Plan.Such protocols shall be established contingent upon approval by the US EPA.

††††††††††††††† D.††††††††††† There shall be no exemptions under this section from the requirements of 20.2.74 NMAC, 20.2.77 NMAC, 20.2.78 NMAC, or 20.2.79 NMAC.

20.2.72.400††††††††† PREAMBLE: The board is concerned about the increasingly common presence of toxic air pollutants in the ambient air.The board believes that the best approach to regulating sources of toxic air pollutants over the long term is to set ambient standards for each pollutant of concern.However, because of financial constraints, the unavailability of sufficient information to establish such ambient standards, the time necessary to establish such standards for the contaminants identified as toxic air pollutants and because the board wishes to implement a toxic air pollutant permitting program as soon as possible, the board has adopted a source-by-source permit-based approach for the present.Under this permit-based approach, the board has given limited authority to the department to use factors of the OELs (occupational exposure limits) in evaluating permit applications.The board recognizes that the use of OELs, or factors of them, as ambient air standards would be inappropriate; therefore, the board has authorized their use for screening purposes only.This authorization is not intended to represent, and should not be interpreted as, a finding by the board that these factors are suitable for determining safe or unsafe ambient air concentrations.Various respected groups, such as the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH), may develop ambient air exposure guidelines in the future.Development of ambient air guidelines by groups such as this could be the basis for developing toxic air pollutant ambient air standards.The board also notes that the department currently is developing an emissions inventory of toxic air pollutants.An emissions inventory may identify toxic air pollutants that are of particular concern in New Mexico.The board believes that efforts like these may facilitate the development of toxic air pollutant ambient air standards.For these reasons, the board requests the department to prepare and present a report to the board within five years of the effective date of the toxic air pollutant permitting requirements.The report shall review and evaluate the implementation of the toxic air pollutant permitting program, summarize the results of the toxic air pollutant inventory gathered pursuant to AQCR 752, and review scientific and technical progress made in the area of toxic air pollutants that might facilitate the development of toxic air pollutant ambient air standards.The board shall schedule a discussion of this report at a regular monthly meeting within three months of the publication of this report.

FOOTNOTES

 

The emissions in pounds per hour in Section 502 were derived using the formula listed below:

 

emission level (lbs/hr) = OEL (mg/m3) / 15

 

 

*= Compound for which an OEL is not listed by the ACGIH.Value derived by using the miminum detectable level listed in the NIOSH "Manual of Analytical Methods", Third Edition.

 

** = Compound for which an OEL is not listed by the ACGIH and for which there is no chemical specific analytical method listed in the NIOSH "Manual of Analytical Methods", Third Edition.A minimum dectable level (MDL) was derived by using the MDL of a similar compound listed in the NIOSH analytical methods or by assigning the average MDL for a class of compounds such as "halogenated hydrocarbons".In some cases the lowest MDL of the whole class was used.

 


 

Table C - Stack Height Release Correction Factor

 

Sources may choose to use a correction factor for the release height of emissions for the purpose of determining whether a permit is necessary for the emission of a toxic air pollutant.To apply the correction go to the table below and find the minimum height of release for the toxic air pollutant and select the correction factor (CF) which corresponds to that figure.If the height of release is between two values, the lower number shall be selected; or in the event of multiple releases of the same substance from different release heights, the source may choose to use a weighted average CF, weighted by the emission rate at each.The emissions in pounds per hour is then multiplied by the CF (see below).If the emissions from your source exceed the resulting number, you must apply for a permit from the department.Remember, this must be done for each toxic air pollutant.
