The owner or operator of any source covered under the provisions of Section 309 of this rule shall meet the following standards.

310.1 There shall be no visible emissions to the outside air, except as provided in Section 310.3 of this rule, during the collection, processing, packaging, transporting or disposition of any asbestos-containing waste material which is generated by such source;

310.2 All asbestos-containing waste material shall be deposited at waste disposal sites which are operated in accordance with the provisions of Section 311; and

311.3 The perimeter of the site shall be fenced in a manner adequate to deter access by the general public, except as specified in Section 311.4 of this rule.

311.4 Warning signs and fencing are not required where the requirements of Sections 311.5(a) or 311.5(b) of this rule are met, or where a natural barrier adequately deters access by the general public. Upon request and supply of appropriate information, the Air Pollution Control Officer will determine whether a fence or a natural barrier adequately deters access to the general public.

311.5 Rather than meet the requirement of Section 311.1 an owner or operator of an inactive waste disposal site where asbestos-containing waste material has been deposited, may elect to meet the requirements of this paragraph, or may use an alternative control method for emissions from inactive waste disposal sites which has received prior approval by the Air Pollution Control Officer.

  1. The asbestos-containing waste material shall be covered with at least six inches of compacted nonasbestos-containing material, and a cover of vegetation shall be grown and maintained on the area adequate to prevent exposure of the asbestos-containing waste material; or
  2. The asbestos-containing waste material shall be covered with at least two feet of compacted nonasbestos-containing material and maintained to prevent exposure of the asbestos-containing waste; or
  3. For inactive waste disposal sites for asbestos tailings, a resinous or petroleum-based dust suppression agent which affectively binds dust and controls wind erosion shall be applied. Such agent shall be used as recommended for the particular asbestos tailings by the dust suppression agent manufacturer. Other equally effective dust suppression agents may be used upon prior approval by the Air Pollution Control Officer. For purposes of this paragraph, waste crankcase oil is not considered a dust suppression agent.

311.6 Rather than meet the requirement of Section 311.1 of this rule, an owner or operator of an active waste disposal site may elect to meet the requirements of Sections 311.6(a) or 311.6(b) of this rule, or may use an alternative control method for emissions from active waste disposal sites which has received prior approval by the Air Pollution Control Officer.

  1. At the end of each operating day, or at least once every 24-hour period while the site is in continuous operation, the asbestos-containing waste material which was deposited at the site during the operating day or previous 24-hour period shall be covered with at least six inches of compacted nonasbestos-containing material.
  2. At the end of each operating day, or at least once every 24-hour period while the disposal site is in continuous operation, the asbestos-containing waste material which was deposited at the site during the operating day of the previous 24-hour period shall be covered with a resinous or petroleum-based dust suppression agent which effectively binds dust and controls wind erosion. Such agent shall be used as recommended for the particular dust by the dust suppression agent manufacturer. Other equally effective dust suppression agents may be used upon prior approval by the Air Pollution Control Officer. For purposes of this section, waste crankcase oil is not considered a dust suppression agent.

312 EXCEPTIONS TO THE VISIBLE EMISSION REQUIREMENTS:

312.1 Rather than meet the no visible emission requirements as specified by Sections 303, 304, 305, 306, 309 or 310, an owner or operator may elect to use air cleaning to clean emissions containing particulate asbestos material before such emissions escape to, or are vented to, the outside air. If air cleaning is elected, the following requirements shall apply:

  1. Fabric filter collection devices shall be used, except as noted in Subsections 312.1(b), 312.1(c), or 312.1(d). Such devices shall be operated at a pressure drop of no more than four inches water gage, as measured across the filter fabric. The airflow permeability, as determined by ASTM method D737-69 the test method referenced in Section 501.4, must not exceed 30ft3/min/ft2 for woven fabrics or 35 ft3/min/ft2 for felted fabrics, except that 40 ft3/min/ft2 for woven and 45 ft3/min/ft2 for felted fabrics is allowed for filtering air from asbestos ore dryers. Each square yard of felted fabric must weigh at least 14 ounces and be at least one-sixteenth inch thick throughout. Synthetic fabrics must not contain fill yarn other than that which is spun.
  2. If the use of fabric filters creates a fire or explosion hazard, the Air Pollution Control Officer may authorize the use of wet collectors designed to operate with a unit contacting energy of at least 40 inches water gage pressure.
  3. A HEPA filtration system may be used in place of a fabric filter collection device. If a new HEPA filter is used, it shall be certified, by the manufacturer to be at least 99.97% efficient for 0.3 micron particles.
  4. The Air Pollution Control Officer may authorize the use of filtering equipment other than that described in Section 312.1, if the owner or operator demonstrates to the satisfaction of the Air Pollution Control Officer that the filtering of particulate asbestos material is equivalent to that of the described equipment.
  5. All air-cleaning equipment authorized by this rule shall be properly installed, used, operated, and maintained. Bypass devices may be used only during upset or emergency conditions and then only for so long as it takes to shut down the operation generating the particulate asbestos material.
