New Source Review Determination

Form: CH-04

You must answer all questions before you can continue to the next page.

Replacement Unit is defined in 40 CFR section 52.21(b)(33).

Debottlenecked Unit describes any unchanged unit at a source that increases its utilization following a change elsewhere at the source.

Modified Unit describes an emissions unit that has been physically changed or had a change in its method of operation that results in the increase of emission of a regulated air pollutant.

If you are replacing an emissions unit, tank, or fugitive source, and you are not also adding a new source (that is not a replacement), choose No for the second question.

Emission Units

Form: GI-05B

You only need to provide information about emission units affected by this administrative amendment. You may not continue until all mandatory fields are entered.

This page allows you to edit and add information for emission units at your facility. You should not check the box next to No Emission Units at this facility if this statement is true. If you are at this screen and you don’t have any emission units, you have indicated on a previous screen that you do have emission units and need to go back and adjust your answers.

Note: this service does not have a point where you are prompted to provide changes to groups in your permit. If you have changes to permit groups, you may upload an “other” type document describing group changes when you reach the attachments screen.

Click Add New Record to add new emission unit information. You may edit some information in existing rows. These are rows that have been populated by data you have entered previously.

Click Delete Record to erase a record that you have added. You may not delete existing records (records that you have not added during this application process). Instead, you may change the status to Inactive and provide a removal date.

If you edit existing information, you must provide a reason in the Reasons for Changes/Modifications text field below the table. This field allows up to 2,000 characters.

Click Next Record to scroll through to the next emission unit. This will take you away from the page you are currently on after all mandatory fields are filled in. You will not be able to move to the next subject item if you are currently viewing the last item.

Click Previous Record to scroll back to the previous emission unit. This will take you away from the page you are currently on after all mandatory fields are filled in. You will not be able to view the previous subject item if you are currently viewing the first item.

Required fields for Emission Units page if box is not checked:

*Only required when the emissions unit is an engine or other combustion unit.

**Only required for certain combustion emissions units.

***Only required when the emissions unit is subject to CSAPR.

Emission Unit ID — For new emission units, the service will list “new” as the ID number. You will need to assign an ID for the purposes of this application process. Any ID you assign will most likely be different when the permit is issued. This ID number must be the same as shown on the Process Flow Diagram and must be used consistently throughout the application.

If you are adding new emission units to your permit, it is important not to reuse previously used ID numbers, even if it is a replacement unit. The new or replacement emission units must be given new and unique ID numbers. ID numbers must be unique within your service. For example, you may not use the ID “0061” for an emission unit and “0061” for a tank. You could instead choose the ID “0061”for the emission unit and “Tank 0061” for the tank. Numbers used for removed emission units cannot be reused for new or replacement emission units. This field allows a maximum of 50 characters.

Required fields for Fugitive Sources page if box is not checked:

Fugitive Source (FS) ID — For new fugitive sources, the service will list “new” as the ID number. You will need to assign an ID for the purposes of this application process. Any ID you assign will most likely be different when the permit is issued. Do not reuse numbers - assign a new and unique ID number to each additional fugitive source. Even if the source replaces a previously removed source, assign a new number. This ID number must be the same as shown on the Process Flow Diagram and must be used consistently throughout the application. This field allows a maximum of 50 characters.

ID numbers must be unique within your service. For example, you may not use the ID “0061” for a fugitive source and “0061” for a tank. You could instead choose the ID “0061” for the fugitive source and “Tank 0061” for the tank.

Type Only allowed FS types are listed in the drop-down list. You must select from the following.

Note: Do not use Odor or Open Air Source.

Description — Describe the fugitive emission source in sufficient detail to identify this source at the facility, for example, coal stockpile, road from mine to North Crusher, etc. This field allows up to 200 characters.

Major Source

Form:  CH-04A

You only need to provide information about individual units, tanks, or fugitive sources affected by this administrative amendment.

Required fields for Major Source page:

*Required if the subject item is modified, debottlenecked, or a replacement.
**Required only when using Projected actual emissions.
***Required only if the subject item is new and not replacing any other subject item.

Modified, Replacement, or Debottlenecked Equipment
Complete a separate Table for each existing individual unit (which can include emissions units, tanks, or fugitive sources) affected by the project.

Select the individual unit, tank, or fugitive source being modified, replaced, or debottlenecked. If you want to unselect an individual unit, tank, or fugitive source from the list, hold the control button and click the subject item you wish to unselect.

Type of Change — Indicate whether the unit is being modified, replaced, or debottlenecked using the drop down menu (see descriptions below).

Modified — For existing emissions units, the emissions increase is determined by calculating the difference between the projected actual emissions (or future potential emissions) and the baseline actual emissions. If you enter a value into either the projected actuals box or the future potential box, the other will not be editable.

Example of a modified emission unit situation: A facility wants to modify a boiler to increase the capacity. The emissions increase is the projected future actual emission minus the baseline actual emissions. You need not consider any increases that could have been accommodated by the unmodified boiler, and that are not due to the modification; these increases not due to the modification would be excluded emissions that are documented at the end of Table 1.

Replacement — When replacing an existing unit with an identical or functionally equivalent unit, the increase is calculated in the same manner as for modification of an existing unit, provided the replacement meets the definition in 40 CFR § 52.21(b)(33). If this is the case, then the emissions increase is the difference between the projected actual emissions of the replacement unit and the baseline actual emissions of the replaced unit. The same requirements described above for using projected actual emission and excluding emissions from the projected actuals apply.

On a separate attachment to this service (attached on a later screen), describe each unit being replaced and the unit replacing it. Explain why the units are identical or functionally equivalent.

Example of a replacement unit situation: An ethanol plant wants to replace one of its fermentation tanks with a tank having the same design parameters. The emissions increase is calculated by estimating the future actual emissions from the replacement fermentation tank and subtracting the past actual emissions of the existing tank.

Debottlenecked For debottlenecked subject items or subject items with increased utilization, if the installation of a new subject item or changes to an existing subject item has the effect of allowing other subject items at the facility to operate at a higher capacity than previously utilized given your existing facility design, this is called debottlenecking. The emissions increase for each debottlenecked unit at an existing major source is calculated in the same manner as replacement or modified units. The emissions increase is the difference between the projected actual emissions after debottlenecking and the baseline actual emissions of the unit prior to the debottlenecking. The same requirements described above for using projected actual emission and excluding emissions from the projected actuals apply.

Example of a debottlenecking situation at a major source: A painting operation is followed by a curing oven. The oven is a bottleneck for the coating operation. The curing oven can cure 500 parts/hr, but has only been curing 300 parts/hr due to customer demand. At full capacity, the paint booth could paint 1,500 parts/hr if the facility had the full curing capacity, but has only been coating the 300 parts/hr that the oven has been curing.

The facility plans to replace the curing oven due to its lack of energy efficiency. The replacement unit that is commercially available can cure 600 parts/hr. It is assumed that no other units are affected by the modification. The facility plans to continue to produce 300 parts/hr initially after oven replacement, but expects a 20 percent increase in demand over the next five years. To meet that demand, the facility must produce 360 parts/hr.

The emission increase at the debottlenecked paint booth is calculated by the facility’s projected emissions less the past actual emissions, except that increases that could have been accommodated with the existing equipment need not be considered. So, though the potential emissions of the facility have increased, there has been no increase due to the modification either at the curing oven or the paint booth. Both the basis for the projected actuals, and the emissions that are excluded from the projected actual, must be documented at the end of Table 1.

Projected actual emissions — Defined at 40 CFR § 52.21(b)(41) , means the maximum annual rate, in tons per year (tpy), at which an existing emission unit is projected to emit a regulated pollutant in any one of the five years (12-month period) following the date the unit resumes regular operation after the project. If the project increases the emission unit’s design capacity or potential to emit, and the potential to emit the regulated pollutant at full utilization of the unit would result in a significant emissions increase or net emissions increase, then the projected actual emissions are the maximum annual rate at which the existing emission unit is projected to emit a regulated pollutant in any one of ten years following the date the unit resumes regular operation. Projected actual emissions include fugitive emissions to the extent they are quantifiable, and emissions associated with startup, shutdown, and malfunction. Do not take air pollution control equipment into account except as allowed by Minn. R. 7007.1200, subp. 2. You may not take credit for proposed or non-federally-enforceable pollution control equipment.

Projected actual emissions should be based on pre-existing information that was prepared for business-related purposes, not for the purpose of preparing a permit application or applicability determination. Examples include but are not limited to a stockholder prospectus, a letter to a parent company, internal capital equipment requisition requests, and other internal planning documents that detail expected future business activities. Be sure to maintain documentation of the information you use as a basis for projected actual emissions, and list the title and date of the document(s) you used as a basis for your projection; if you do not have adequate documentation of projected business activities, then you must use future potential emissions in the calculations.

There are emissions that may be excluded when calculating the projected actual emissions. These exclusions are defined at 40 CFR § 52.21(b)(41)(ii)(c).

Future potential emissions — You may instead use future potential emissions in the calculation if you choose. You may wish to do that to avoid recordkeeping requirements, and for electric utility steam generating units (EUSGU), recordkeeping and reporting. You must use future potential emissions if you do not have adequate documentation of projected business activities. If you are using future potential emissions in your analysis, do not take air pollution control equipment into account except as allowed by Minn. R. 7007.1200, subp. 2. You may not take credit for proposed or non-federally-enforceable pollution control equipment.

Baseline actual emissions — defined at 40 CFR § 52.21(b)(48), are the average rate, over a 24-month period within the last ten years, that the unit actually emitted, unless the unit is a EUSGU. If the unit is a EUSGU, the baseline actual emissions are chosen over a 24-month period within the last five years. In either case, you must use the same 24-month period for all units emitting a given pollutant; different 24-month periods may be used for different pollutants. Baseline actual emissions include fugitive emissions to the extent they are quantifiable, and emissions associated with startup, shutdown, and malfunction. You may not use any emissions that exceeded allowable levels in the baseline actual emissions. For additional guidance on baseline actual emissions, see the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) website at http://www.pca.state.mn.us/xggx491.

Exclusions from project actuals — There are emissions that may be excluded when calculating the Projected actual emissions. These exclusions are defined at 40 CFR § 52.21(b)(41)(ii)(c).

Increase —  Enter the difference in tpy between either the Projected actual emissions (minus qualifying exclusions) or the Future potential emissions, and Baseline actual emissions.


EUSGU —  Select ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ from the drop down menu based on whether the source is an electric utility steam generating unit (EUSGU).

Baseline period Start Date — Provide the beginning date within the last 10 years (5 years if the unit is an EUSGU) of the Baseline actual emissions averaging period. This date must be the same for all units emitting a given pollutant.

Baseline period End Date — Provide the end date of the Baseline actual emissions averaging period. This must be 24 months after the Start Date. The period must not go over 24 months, even by one day. For example, if the Start Date is 12/12/2013, the End Date must be 12/11/2015. This End Date must be the same for all units emitting a given pollutant.

Modifications that Involve Multiple Types of Emission Units:If you have a project that involves a combination of existing emission units and/or new units, the emissions increase is calculated for each type of unit as described above. That means for the involved existing emission units you would calculate the increase by comparing future projected actual emissions with baseline actual emissions. The same requirements described above for using projected actual emission and excluding emissions from the projected actuals apply.

For new units, the increase would be calculated as the potential to emit of the new unit, unless the new unit is a replacement unit.

Title of the document used as basis for projected actuals – If you used projected actuals, provide the title of the document used for determining projected actuals for the pollutant. This field allows up to 500 characters.

Date of the document used as basis for projected actuals – If you used projected actuals, provide the date of the document used for determining projected actuals for the pollutant. The format for the date is MM/DD/YYYY.

Minor Source

Form: CH-04B

You only need to provide information about individual units, tanks, or fugitive sources affected by this administrative amendment.

Required fields for Minor Source page:

*Required in the first table if the subject item is modified, debottlenecked, or a replacement.
**Required in the second table only if the subject item is new and not replacing any other subject item.

Modified, Replacement, or Debottlenecked Equipment
Complete a separate Table for each existing individual unit (which can include emissions units, tanks, or fugitive sources) affected by the project.

Select the individual unit, tank, or fugitive source being modified, replaced, or debottlenecked. If you want to unselect an individual unit, tank, or fugitive source from the list, hold the control button and click the subject item you wish to unselect.

Type of Change — Indicate whether the unit is being modified, replaced, or debottlenecked using the drop down menu (see descriptions below).

Modified —

Example of a modified emission unit situation: A facility wants to modify a boiler to increase the capacity. The emissions increase is the potential emissions after the modification.

Replacement

Example of a replacement unit situation: An ethanol plant wants to replace one of its fermentation tanks with a tank having the same design parameters. The emissions increase is the potential emissions of the replacement unit.

Debottlenecked — For debottlenecked subject items or subject items with increased utilization, if the installation of a new subject item or changes to an existing subject item has the effect of allowing other subject items at the facility to operate at a higher capacity than previously utilized given your existing facility design, this is called debottlenecking.

Example of a debottlenecking situation at a minor source: A painting operation is followed by a curing oven. The oven is a bottleneck for the coating operation. The curing oven can cure 500 parts/hr, but has only been curing 300 parts/hr due to customer demand. At full capacity, the paint booth could paint 1,500 parts/hr if the facility had the full curing capacity, but has only been coating the 300 parts/hr that the oven has been curing.

The facility plans to replace the curing oven due to its lack of energy efficiency. The replacement unit that is commercially available can cure 600 parts/hr. It is assumed that no other units are affected by the modification. The facility plans to continue to produce 300 parts/hr initially after oven replacement, but expects a 20 percent increase in demand over the next five years. To meet that demand, the facility must produce 360 parts/hr.

The emission increase at the debottlenecked paint booth is calculated as the facility’s potential emissions at 600 parts/hr unless a limit is taken at 360 parts/hr.

PTE (tpy) — Provide the potential to emit of the modified, replacement, or debottlenecked equipment. Do not use scientific notation. Nine decimal places are available.

Modifications that Involve Multiple Types of Emission Units: If you have a project that involves a combination of existing emission units and/or new units, the emissions increase is calculated for each type of unit as described above. That means for the involved existing emission units you would calculate the potential to emit.

For new units, the increase is also calculated as the potential to emit of the unit.

Major Amendment Determination

Form: CH-03

You only need to provide information affected by this administrative amendment. An answer to each question must be provided. You may not continue until all mandatory fields are entered.

This screen refers to proposed changes and modifications. A “modification” as defined in Minn. R. 7007.0100, subp. 14 , includes:

  1. any change that constitutes a title I modification …; or
  2. any physical change or change in the method of operation of an emissions unit, emission facility, or stationary source that results in an increase in the emission of a regulated air pollutant.

A “change” is a change to permit terms or conditions, in the absence of a modification as described above.

Is there a New Source Performance Standard (NSPS) for a source category which includes the unit(s) you are installing, modifying, or reconstructing? – Answer Yes if an NSPS applies.

New Source Performance Standards (NSPSs) are federal rules that define limits, testing, and monitoring for certain specific emission units. These standards are proposed and promulgated in the Federal Register and published in the Code of Federal Regulations, title 40 part 60 (40 CFR pt. 60) and part 62 (40 CFR pt. 62). The NSPS table below lists the standards promulgated through May 2014. The table may not be complete if a new NSPS has been promulgated since this table was last revised. The NSPS table contains:

Note: Because there can be a significant time lag between the date when a standard is proposed or promulgated and when it is published in the Code of Federal Regulations, the best way to keep up to date on NSPS regulations is through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s webpage (http://www.epa.gov) or the Federal Register.

Please read through the emission sources in the NSPS table below. If you have modified (as defined in 40 CFR § 60.14), reconstructed (as defined in 40 CFR § 60.15), or constructed the described emission source on or after the effective date listed in the table, your facility may be subject to the requirements of 40 CFR pt. 60 or 62. Generally, reconstruction means that the cost of a repair exceeds 50 percent of what it would cost to install a new emission unit. If you have had an extensive and expensive repair, it may count as a reconstruction.

If you know, or suspect, standards may apply to your facility, you must refer to the corresponding 40 CFR pt. 60 or 62 subpart and read the requirements in detail to make a final determination.

Note: The general provisions found in 40 CFR pt. 60 or 62, subp. A, apply to all facilities subject to any other 40 CFR pt. 60 or 62 requirements.

Is there a Part 61 or Part 63 NESHAP for a source category which includes the unit(s) you are installing, modifying, or reconstructing? – Answer Yes if a NESHAP applies.

National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) – There are two Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) parts that contain NESHAP regulations. You must determine if any NESHAPs apply from either CFR part. When you get to the attachments screen for this service, you must attach a copy of each NESHAP (including Subpart A) with the applicable requirements highlighted. If the applicable standard offers more than one compliance option, make it clear which one you are choosing.

Part 61 NESHAP – Part 61 NESHAPs were the regulations in existence before the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. They apply only to air emission sources listed in the Part 61 NESHAP table (below) that emit the pollutants listed. The table contains:

Read through the Part 61 NESHAP table. If your facility emits any of the listed pollutants, and your facility type, process, or equipment matches those associated with the pollutant, a NESHAP may apply to you. To determine if a standard applies to your facility, refer to the corresponding 40 CFR pt. 61 subpart(s) and Minnesota Rules listed and read the requirements in detail.

 *If you are subject only to 40 CFR §61.145 (subp. M Standard for Demolition and Renovation), because you are doing asbestos abatement, you do not need a Minnesota Air Emission Permit, but you must contact the Minnesota Department of Health at 651-201-4620 and the asbestos team at the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency at 651-757-2638 before beginning any abatement activity.

Part 63 NESHAP – Part 63 NESHAPs are regulations promulgated after the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. They apply if your source has the potential to emit HAPs (Table A) in amounts equal to or greater than 10 tpy for any individual HAP or 25 tpy for total HAPs and is listed in Table B Major Source Categories below. They also apply if your source emits less than the above amounts and is listed in Table C Minor Source Categories below.

Does this change or modification amend any existing permit requirements? – Answer Yes if you are requesting to make a significant change that does not included the following (Minn. R. 7007.1500, subp. 1(A)):

  1. Adding new requirements;
  2. eliminating the requirements if they are rendered meaningless because the only emissions to which the requirements apply will no longer occur;
  3. eliminating requirements that are technically incorrect where the elimination does not affect the accuracy of the data generated or of the monitoring information recorded or reported; or
  4. eliminating requirements for a piece of equipment that no longer exists or has been permanently disabled from use at the stationary source.

Does this change or modification establish or amend any source-specific permit condition that is required to be based on a case-by-case determination of an emissions limit or standard? – Refer to Minn. R. 7007.1500, subp. 1(B).

Does this change or modification establish or amend any permit terms or conditions for which there is no underlying applicable requirement? – “Applicable requirement” is described in part 7007.0100, subpart 7, items A to K. Answer Yes if this affects permit terms the stationary source has assumed to avoid an applicable requirement to which the stationary source would otherwise be subject. Such terms and conditions include:

  1. A federally enforceable emissions cap assumed to avoid classification as a title I modification; and
  2. an alternative emissions limit approved pursuant to regulations promulgated under section 112(i)(5) of the act (Hazardous Air Pollutant; Schedule for Compliance; Early Reduction).

Does this change or modification establish, amend, renew, or distribute a Plantwide Applicability Limit (PAL)? – A PAL, defined under 40 CFR § 52.21(aa)(2)(v), means an emission limitation expressed on a mass basis in tons per year, or expressed in tons per year CO2e for a CO2e-based GHG emission limitation, for a pollutant at a major stationary source or GHG-only source, that is enforceable as a practical matter and established source-wide in accordance with paragraphs (aa)(1) through (15) of 40 CFR § 52.21. PALs must be established or revised through issuance of Part 70 permit or the major amendment process. Unless you are Andersen Corporation or you want to establish a PAL, you will likely answer No.

Is this change or modification subject to classification as a major permit amendment under any other agency rule? – The MPCA may, by rulemaking, classify changes that would not otherwise require the major amendment process as being subject to that process.

Does this change or modification seek to establish or amend a federally enforceable cap which avoids classification as a Part 70? – A source may establish limits to limit annual emissions of regulated pollutants to below Part 70 thresholds. Answer Yes if a limit or cap is created or affected by this change or modification. “Federally-enforceable emissions cap” most commonly refers to a limit on hours of operation, on the type or quantity of materials combusted, stored, or processed, or conditions that require air pollution control equipment be operated and maintained at a specified frequency to limit the annual amount of emissions. Adding equipment or processes under the cap when the permit does not specifically pre-authorize such additions is amending the cap.

Action Type Determination

Form: CH-02

You only need to provide information affected by this administrative amendment. An answer to each question must be provided. You may not continue until all mandatory fields are entered.

Note: This screen will be redesigned to add two extra questions pertaining to Minn. R. 7007.1400 subps. (D)(2) and (D)(3). If your administrative amendment pertains to one of these subparts, you may upload an “other” type document when you reach the attachment screen. This document must describe your amendment and list the rule subpart your change falls under.

The following subparts are currently missing from the screen:

Does this proposed change consist only of insignificant activities…? – if part of the project is not one of the insignificant activities, answer No to this question. The following are links to the associated Minnesota Rules.

Do you need an administrative amendment…? – Administrative amendment rules are in Minn. R. 7007.1400 . Administrative amendments may not be used to incorporate newly applicable requirements for new equipment, even if it is a replacement. For example, you may be replacing an existing boiler with a smaller boiler; the existing boiler pre-dated the NSPS; the new boiler is subject to 40 CFR pt. 60, subp. Dc. While the replacement is not a modification (because there is an overall decrease in emissions calculated per Minn. R. 7007.1200, subp. 3), your permit must be amended to include the new applicable NSPS requirements, and will most likely require a major amendment.

Do you need to revise the Insignificant Activities list for your facility? – Answer Yes to this question if you are adding, replacing, or removing any insignificant activities.

Are you filing this amendment to correct a typographical error? – This is generally limited to spelling mistakes or incorrect citations. A change to the numeric portion of a limit is not considered correcting a typographical error.

Are you filing this amendment to add testing, monitoring, recordkeeping, or reporting requirements? – Answer Yes if you need to add any requirements to your permit that will require the permittee to comply with adkditional, more frequent, or expanded testing, monitoring, recordkeeping, or reporting requirements.

Note: Administrative amendments cannot be used to incorporate requirements from New Source Performance Standards into a permit.

Are you filing this amendment to eliminate testing, monitoring, recordkeeping, or reporting requirements…? – Answer Yes if you need to delete any requirements in your permit. Only the following may be accomplished through an administrative amendment:

Are you filing this amendment to incorporate requirements from a preconstruction review permit issued by the MPCA? – You will likely answer No to this question.

Are you filing this amendment to clarify the meaning of a permit term? – When clarifying a permit term, the meaning of the permit term cannot be changed. For example, a permit term might require that a parameter must be monitored daily, and the parameter value must be between 100 and 150 degrees Fahrenheit. This permit term could be clarified through an administrative amendment to explain that "daily" meant each day of operation, not every single day even if the emission unit was not in use. Changing the value range from 100-150 to 120-180 degrees Fahrenheit would NOT be a clarification of the meaning of this permit term and could not be done through an administrative amendment under this item.

Are you filing this amendment to extend a testing deadline by more than 120 days and up to 365 days? – If you would like to extend a deadline by 120 days or less, use the Administrative Amendment RSP service “Extension of Deadline Only – Up to 120 Days.”

Are you filing this amendment to remove a permit condition based on a repealed applicable requirement?(Minn. R. 7007.1400 subp. 1(I)) Only if:

Are you filing this amendment to correct or update a citation (but not change the permit condition)?(Minn. R. 7007.1400 subp. 1(J))

Are you filing this amendment to extend the construction deadline established under New Source Review? – Provided the extension of the deadline for construction authorization has been approved by the commissioner prior to the submittal of this administrative amendment application. If you have prior approval, you will need to upload a copy of the approval as an “other” type document when you reach the attachments screen.
