214.9 Gaseous emissions.
(a) Coke oven fuel gas-sulfur recovery/desulfurization systems.
No person may operate any by-product coke oven battery, including auxiliary gas collecting and heating systems, in such a manner as to emit, burn or flare coke oven gas containing more than 0.5 grains of sulfur compounds (measured as hydrogen sulfide) per dry standard cubic foot of total coke oven gas produced. If the source owner can demonstrate to the satisfaction of the commissioner, by an acceptable air quality impact analysis, that the emissions will not contribute to the contravention of any applicable sulfur dioxide ambient air quality standard and will not significantly degrade air quality, the commissioner may permit the use of coke oven gas containing sulfur compounds in excess of the amount specified above provided that a sulfur recovery/desulfurization system approved by the commissioner is installed and operated.
(b) Reasonably available control technology.
(1) Owners and/or operators of facilities subject to this Part must submit a compliance plan to the department by October 20, 1994 which identifies reasonably available control technology for each nitrogen oxide and volatile organic compound emission point. The compliance plan must identify the emission points which are not equipped with reasonably available control technology (RACT), and must include a schedule for installation of RACT. Reasonably available control technology as approved by the department must be implemented on each emission point subject to this subdivision by May 31, 1995.
(2) Compliance plans which include construction of emission control equipment must include a milestone date not later than December 20, 1994 for submission to the department of permit to construct applications. These compliance plans must include milestone dates for commencement of construction, completion of construction, and completion of emissions testing of emission control equipment.
(3) Reasonably available control technology compliance plans for nitrogen oxide emission points must include technically feasible control strategies to minimize nitrogen oxide formation and emission control equipment alternatives.
(4) Volatile organic compound emission points which are subject to, and are in compliance with Subparts L or FF of the national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants in 40 CFR part 61 (see Table 1, section 200.9 of this Title) are equipped with reasonably available control technology for purposes of compliance with this section.
(5) These process specific RACT demonstrations which are acceptable to the department will be submitted to the United States Environmental Protection Agency for approval as a revision to the State Implementation Plan by the department.
