20.11.66.12 EMISSIONS OF PARTICULATER MATTER: Except as otherwise provided in this section, no person shall cause or allow the emission of particulate matter to the atmosphere from process equipment in any one hour in total quantities in excess of the amount shown in Table 1.

A. To use the Table 1, select the process weight per hour (wt/hr). From the process wt/hr shown in Table 1, locate the corresponding value for the maximum number of pounds of contaminants, which may be discharged into the atmosphere in any one hour. As an example, if a process emits contaminants into the atmosphere totaling 1,500 pounds (lbs.), and the process takes 3 hours to complete, you must divide the weight of all materials in the specific process by the number of hours. For example, 1,500 lbs. divided by 3 yields a process weight per hour of 500 lbs. From Table 1, the amount of emissions that can be discharged is 1.77 lbs in any one hour during the overall 3-hour process. Where the process weight per hour falls between figures in the left-hand column, the exact weight of permitted discharge shall be interpolated.

B. For purposes of this Part, the total process weight from all similar process units at a plant or premises shall be used for determining the maximum allowable emission of particulate matter that passes through a stack or stacks. The process weight rate shall be the equipment manufacturers or designers guaranteed maximum input, whichever is greater. Where the nature of any process or operation or the design of any equipment is such as to permit more than one interpretation of this definition, the interpretation that results in the minimum value for allowable emission shall apply.

[12/1/95; 20.11.66.12 NMAC Rn, 20 NMAC 11.66.I.12 & Repealed, 10/1/02; Rn, 20 NMAC 11.66.II.1, 10/1/02]

 

20.11.66.13 CEMENT KILNS: No person operating or utilizing cement kilns shall permit, cause, suffer or allow particulate matter emissions in excess of 230 mg/m3 of exhaust gas.

[12/1/95; 20.11.66.13 NMAC Rn, 20 NMAC 11.66.II.2, 10/1/02]

 

20.11.66.14 GYPSUM COOKERS: 20.11.66.12 NMAC shall not apply to gypsum cookers or kettles constructed prior to the effective date of these regulations. No person shall cause or allow the emission of particulate matter into the atmosphere in any one hour from gypsum cookers or kettles constructed prior to the effective date of these regulations in total amounts which exceed 690 mg/m3 of exhaust gas.

[12/1/95; 20.11.66.14 NMAC Rn, 20 NMAC 11.66.II.3, 10/1/02]

 

20.11.66.15 ASPHALTIC BATCH PLANTS: 20.11.66.12 NMAC shall not apply to an asphaltic batch plant. No person shall cause or allow the emission of particulate matter into the atmosphere in any one hour from any or all operations of an asphaltic batch plant in total quantities in excess of the amount shown in Table 2.

A. For a process weight between any two consecutive process weights in Table 2, the emission limitation shall be determined by interpolation. Where the plant has more than one emission point, the emission total is the sum of emissions from all emission points.

B. No plant shall operate without a fugitive dust control system and the system shall operate and be maintained so that particulate emission is limited to the stack outlet.

[12/1/95; 20.11.66.15 NMAC Rn, 20 NMAC 11.66.II.4, 10/1/02]

 

20.11.66.16 MEASUREMENT: For purposes of this Part, any measurement of emissions into the atmosphere may be made by comparing the weight of materials before and after processing or by measurements taken after particulate emissions have passed through air pollution control devices or apparatus, if any, or by other reasonably accurate methods or procedures.

[12/1/95; 20.11.66.16 NMAC Rn, 20 NMAC 11.66.II.5, 10/1/02]

 

20.11.66.17 FUGITIVE DUST: No person shall operate process equipment, which emits fugitive dust into the atmosphere unless reasonable effective precautions are taken to prevent fugitive dust from being emitted into the atmosphere.

[12/1/95; 20.11.66.17 NMAC Rn, 20 NMAC 11.66.II.6, 10/1/02]
