SHAAQMD RULE 3:2 SPECIFIC AIR CONTAMINANTS
LAST REVISED 7/22/86

Rule 3:2. Specific Air Contaminants

No person shall discharge contaminants from any single source into the atmosphere in amounts greater than those designated in Table I of this rule.

All emissions are to be measured by methods approved for use by the Air Pollution Control Officer (APCO). Any method approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and/or the California Air Resources Board (CARB) is approved for use by the APCO. (Amended 7-22-86)

























Explanatory Notes for Rule 3:2, Table 1


1. Calculated at standard conditions: 70o F, one atmosphere, dry gas basis.

2. When the emissions are generated by a combustion process, the gas volume shall be corrected to 12% CO2 at standard temperature and pressure.

3. The Air Pollution Control Officer may specify an appropriate correction and/or reporting factor depending upon the type of process involved.

Guidelines given are in terms of twelve-hour averages, e.g., from midnight to noon. These are not "running" averages, but are instead for discrete contiguous twelve-hour periods of time.

One percent of all twelve-hour total reduced sulphur (TRS) averages per quarter year above the specified level, under conditions of proper operation and maintenance, in the absence of start-ups, shutdowns, and malfunctions, are not considered to be excess emissions.

Furnaces not constructed with air pollution control as an objective (see definitions on pages 6-7 and 10-3 of Kraft Pulping - Control of TRS Emissions from Existing Mills, March 1979).

Furnaces designed for low TRS emissions and having stated in their contracts that they were constructed with air pollution control as an objective (see definitions on pages 6-7 and 10-3 of Kraft Pulping).

Two percent of all twelve-hour TRS averages per quarter year above 8 ppm, under conditions of proper operation and maintenance, in the absence of start-ups, shutdowns, and malfunctions, are not considered to be excess emissions.
