Section 411

Other Sources:

Particulate matter discharged into the atmosphere from other than combustion sources shall not exceed:

  1. Two-tenths (0.2) grain per standard cubic foot of gas, or
  2. The total process emission from a single premise source for any dust, condensed fume or other particulate matter, as given in Table 1. The more stringent of A or B shall apply.

Section 412:

Sulfur Recovery Units: A person shall not discharge into the atmosphere from any sulfur recovery unit producing elemental sulfur, effluent process gas containing more than:

  1. Three hundred (300) parts per million by volume of sulfur compounds calculated as sulfur dioxide;
  2. Ten (10) parts per million by volume of hydrogen sulfide;
  3. One hundred (100) pounds per hour of sulfur compounds calculated as sulfur dioxide. Any sulfur recovery unit having an effluent process gas discharge containing less than 10 pounds per hour of sulfur compounds calculated as sulfur dioxide may dilute to meet the provisions of Section 412 A.
