PREFACE

Several changes have been incorporated in the document "Protocol - Oxides of Nitrogen" since it was released September 1993. These changes reflect comments and suggestions received from the regulated industry, environmental community, regulatory agency staff and the public. Changes are summarized below.

Ü Overview

_ Mass emission limitation equations also presented on fuel usage basis

_ CEMS plan submittal and revision process clarified

_ Rental equipment defined and documentation required

Ü Chapter 2: Major Sources - Continuous Emission Monitoring System (CEMS)

_ CEMS provisional approval for Cycle 2 facilities allowed

_ FCO2 factor included to calculate stack flow equations

_ Certified tester required as part of certification process

_ EPA protocol 2 gases may be used to certify CEMS if protocol 1 gases are not available

_ Standby Certified CEMS allowed when the dedicated CEMS is down

_ An alternative emission factor option for missing data calculation provided

_ Monitoring data allowed on a wet basis

Ü Chapter 3: Large Sources - Continuous Process Monitoring System (CPMS)

_ Upon demonstration orifice plates may be inspected on three year intervals

_ Statistically equivalent source test methodology added to acceptable test methods

Ü Chapter 4: NOx Process Unit - Periodic Reporting and Rule 219 Equipment

_ Statistically equivalent source test methodology added to acceptable test methods

_ Sharing of fuel meters allowed for Process Units and Rule 219 equipment

Ü Chapter 5: Major and Large Sources - Source Testing

_ Table 5-B clarification: no tune-up required for Rule 219 equipment
