PARTICLE EMISSION LIMIT VALUES ACCORDING TO THE PROCESS FEED RATE FOR CERTAIN EXISTING SOURCES INSTALLED OR PUT INTO OPERATION AFTER 14 NOVEMBER 1979 AND FOR CERTAIN NEW SOURCES
Process feed rate Particle emission limits
For the purposes of this Schedule,
(1) “feed rate” means the feed rate as defined in section 8 of this Regulation;
(2) interpolation and extrapolation of the values in this Schedule for a feed rate under 25 t/h are effected using the formula E = 1.7 p0.62, where E is the emission standard in kg/h and p is the feed rate in t/h; for a feed rate equal to or greater than 25 t/h, the formula used is E = 8 p0.16;
(3) in the case of intermittent process operation, the feed rate is calculated by dividing the total feed weight by the number of hours of full operation and subtracting the time during which the equipment was not in operation. The hourly feed rate is calculated by dividing the feed weight for a typical time period by the number of hours in that period; and
(4) where the process has a number of production lines, the limit value of the process is the limit value corresponding to the total of the feed rates of each of the lines.
