methodology to a particular emissions unit would make the imposition of an emissions
standard infeasible, then a design, equipment, work practice, operational standard, or
combination thereof, may be prescribed instead to satisfy the requirement for the
application of best available control technology. The standard shall, to the degree
possible, set forth the emissions reduction achievable by implementation of the design,
equipment, work practice, or operation, and shall provide for compliance by means which
achieve equivalent results.
(g) “Building, structure, facility, or installation” means all of the pollutant-emitting
activities which belong to the same industrial grouping, are located on 1 or more
contiguous or adjacent properties, and are under the control of the same person, or
persons under common control, except the activities of any vessel. Pollutant-emitting
activities are part of the same industrial grouping if they have the same 2-digit major
group code associated with their primary activity. Major group codes and primary
activities are described in the standard industrial classification manual, 2017.
(h) “Clean coal technology” means any technology, including technologies applied
at the pre-combustion, combustion, or post-combustion stage, at a new or existing facility
which will achieve significant reductions in air emissions of sulfur dioxide or oxides of
nitrogen associated with the utilization of coal in the generation of electricity, or process
steam which was not in widespread use as of November 15, 1990.
(i) “Clean coal technology demonstration project” means a project using funds
appropriated under the heading "Department of Energy -- Clean Coal Technology," up to
a total amount of $2,500,000,000 for commercial demonstration of clean coal technology,
or similar projects funded through appropriations for the United States Environmental
Protection Agency. The federal contribution for a qualifying project shall be at least 20%
of the total cost of the demonstration project.
(k) “Commence,” as applied to construction of a major stationary source or major
modification, means that the owner or operator has all necessary preconstruction
approvals or permits and has done either of the following:
(i) Begun, or caused to begin, a continuous program of actual on-site construction
of the source, to be completed within a reasonable time.
(ii) Entered into binding agreements or contractual obligations, which cannot be
canceled or modified without substantial loss to the owner or operator, to undertake a
program of actual construction of the source to be completed within a reasonable time.
(l) “Complete” means, in reference to an application for a permit, that the
application contains all the information necessary for processing the application.
Designating an application complete for purposes of permit processing does not preclude
the department from requesting or accepting additional information.
(m) “Construction” means any physical change or change in the method of
operation, including fabrication, erection, installation, demolition, or modification of an
emissions unit, that would result in a change in emissions.
(n) “Continuous emissions monitoring system” or “CEMS” means all of the
equipment that may be required to meet the data acquisition and availability requirements
of these rules, to sample, condition if applicable, analyze, and provide a record of
emissions on a continuous basis.
