RULE 260.40b - APPLICABILITY AND DEFINITION OF AFFECTED FACILITY
(Rev. Effective 3-14-89)

(a)    The affected facility to which this subpart applies is each steam generating unit that commences construction, modification, or reconstruction after June 19, 1984, and that has a heat input capacity from fuels combusted in the steam generating unit of more than 29 MW (100 million BTU/hour).

(b)    Any affected facility meeting the applicability requirements under Section (a) of this rule and commencing construction, modification, or reconstruction after June 19, 1984, but on or before June 19, 1986, is subject to the following standards:

  1. Coal-fired affected facilities having a heat input capacity between 29 and 73 MW (100 and 250 million BTU/hour), inclusive, are subject to the particulate matter and nitrogen oxides standards under this subpart.
  2. Coal-fired affected facilities having a heat input capacity greater than 73 MW (250 million BTU/hour) and meeting the applicability requirements under Subpart D (Standards of Performance for Fossil-Fuel Fired Steam Generators; Rule 260.40) are subject to the particulate matter and nitrogen oxides standards under this subpart and to the sulfur dioxide standards under Subpart D (Rule 260.43).
  3. Oil-fired affected facilities having a heat input capacity between 29 and 73 MW (100 and 250 million BTU/hour), inclusive, are subject to the nitrogen oxides standards under this subpart.
  4. Oil-fired affected facilities having a heat input capacity greater than 73 MW (250 million BTU/hour) and meeting the applicability requirements under Subpart D (Standards of Performance for Fossil-Fuel-Fired Steam Generators: Rule 260.40) are also subject to the nitrogen oxides standards under this subpart and the particulate matter and sulfur dioxide standards under Subpart D (Rules 260.42 and 260.43).

(c)    Affected facilities which also meet the applicability requirements under Subpart  J (Standards of Performance for Petroleum Refineries; Rule 260.104) are subject to the particulate matter and nitrogen oxides standards under this subpart and the sulfur dioxide standards under Subpart J (Rule 260.104).

(d)    Affected facilities which also meet the applicability requirements under Subpart  E (Standards of Performance for Incinerators; Rule 260.50) are subject to the nitrogen oxides and particulate matter standards under this subpart.

(e)    Steam generating units meeting the applicability requirements under Subpart Da (Standards of Performance for Electric Utility Steam Generating Units; Rule 260.40a) are not subject to this subpart.

(f)    Any change to an existing stream generating unit for the sole purpose of combusting gases containing TRS (Total Reduced Sulfur) as defined under Section 60.281, Title 40, Code of Federal Regulations, is not considered a modification under Rule 260.14 and the steam generating unit is not subject to this subpart.
