101 PURPOSE: To limit the emission of sulfur compounds and combustion contaminants through establishment of emission concentrations.

200 DEFINITIONS

201 COMBUSTION CONTAMINANTS: Particulate matter discharged into the atmosphere from the burning of any kind of material containing carbon in a free or combined state.

300 STANDARDS

301 SULFUR COMPOUNDS: A person shall not discharge into the atmosphere from any single source of emission whatsoever sulfur compounds in any state or combination thereof exceeding in concentration at the point of discharge: sulfur compounds, calculated as sulfur dioxide (SO2): 0.2% by volume, except as otherwise provided in Rule 420.

302 COMBUSTION CONTAMINANTS: A person shall not discharge into the atmosphere from any single source of emission whatsoever, combustion contaminants in any state or combination thereof exceeding in concentration at the point of discharge: 0.23 grams per dry standard cubic meter (0.1 grains per dry standard cubic foot) of gas calculated to 12% of carbon dioxide (CO2) at standard conditions except that 0.69 grams per dry standard cubic meter (0.3 grains per dry standard cubic foot) of gas calculated to 12% of carbon dioxide (CO2) at standard conditions shall be applied to incinerators rated less than or equal to 100 pounds per hour capacity and installed before July 1, 1978. In measuring the combustion contaminants from other than pathological incinerators used to dispose of combustible refuse by burning, the carbon dioxide (CO2) produced by combustion of any liquid or gaseous fuels shall be excluded from the calculation to 12% carbon dioxide (CO2).
