and furans, and the two weeks preceding the annual mercury tests (for carbon feed rate requirements only).
(F)The owner or operator of a municipal waste combustor shall be exempted from limits on load level, temperature at the inlet of the particular matter control device, and carbon feed rate when the Director approves for any activities to evaluate system performance, test new technology or control technology, perform diagnostic testing, perform other activities to improve the performance, or perform other activities to advance the state of the art for emissions controls.
(3)The operational standards of this Paragraph apply at all times except during periods of municipal waste combustor startup, shutdown, or malfunction that last no more than three hours.
(e) Test Methods and Procedures.
(1)References contained in Table 8 of 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart BBBB will be used to determine the sampling location, pollutant concentrations, number of traverse points, individual test methods, and other specific testing requirements for the different pollutants.
(2)Stack tests for all the pollutants will consist of at least three test runs, as specified in 40 CFR 60.8 and use the average of the pollutant emission concentrations from the three test runs to determine compliance with the applicable emission limits of Paragraph (c) of this Rule.
(3)An oxygen (or carbon dioxide) measurement will be obtained at the same time as pollutant measurements to determine diluent gas levels, as specified in 40 CFR 60.1720.
(4)The equations in 40 CFR 60.1935 will be used to calculate emission levels at seven percent oxygen (or an equivalent carbon dioxide basis), the percent reduction in potential hydrogen chloride emissions, and the reduction efficiency for mercury emissions. Other required equations are contained in individual test methods specified in Table 6 of 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart BBBB.
(5)The owner or operator may apply to the Director for approval under 40 CFR 60.8(b) to use a reference method with minor changes in methodology, use an equivalent method, use an alternative method the results of which the Director has determined are adequate for demonstrating compliance, waive the requirement for a performance test because
you have demonstrated by other means that you are in compliance, or use a shorter sampling time or smaller sampling volume.
(6)The test methods and procedures described in 15A NCAC 02D .0501, 40 CFR Part 60, Appendix A and 40 CFR Part 61, Appendix B shall be used to determine compliance with emission standards in Paragraph (c) of this Rule according to table 8 of 40 CFR Part 60, Subpart BBBB.
(7)Method 29 of 40 CFR Part 60, Appendix A-8 shall be used to determine emission rates for metals for toxic evaluations except for chromium (VI). Method 29 shall be used only to collect samples and SW 846 Method 0060 shall be used to analyze the samples of chromium(VI).
(8) The owner or operator will conduct initial and annual stack tests to measure the emission levels of dioxins and furans, cadmium, lead, mercury, beryllium, arsenic, chromium (VI), particulate matter, opacity, hydrogen chloride, and fugitive ash. Annual stack tests for the same pollutants will be conducted no later than 13 months after the previous stack test.
(9)The owner or operator must use results of stack tests for dioxins and furans, cadmium, lead, mercury, beryllium, arsenic, chromium (VI), particulate matter, opacity, hydrogen chloride, and fugitive ash to demonstrate compliance with the applicable emission limits in this rule except for carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur dioxide.
(10)The owner or operator must use results of continuous emissions monitoring of carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur dioxide to demonstrate compliance with the applicable emission limits in this Rule.
(11)The testing frequency for dioxin and furan may be reduced if the conditions under 40 CFR 60.1795(b) are met.
(12)The Director may require the owner or operator of any incinerator subject to this Rule to test his incinerator to demonstrate compliance with the emission standards in Paragraph (c) of this Rule.
(f) Monitoring, Recordkeeping, and Reporting.
(1)The owner or operator shall comply with the monitoring, recordkeeping, and reporting requirements developed pursuant to Section .0600 of this Subchapter.
(2)The owner or operator that has installed air pollution abatement equipment to reduce emissions of hydrogen chloride shall install, operate, and maintain continuous parametric monitoring equipment to measure pH for wet scrubber systems and rate of alkaline injection for dry scrubber systems.
(3)The owner or operator shall:
