AND CONFORMITY: KRS 224.10-100 requires the Environmental and Public Protection

Cabinet to prescribe administrative regulations for the prevention, abatement,

and control of air pollution. This administrative regulation provides standards

of performance for existing ethylene producing plants.


      Section 1.

Applicability. The provisions of this administrative regulation shall apply to

each affected facility which means each waste gas stream of ethylene producing

plants commenced before the classification date defined below, and which are

located in a region classified as Priority I with respect to photochemical oxidants

(and hydrocarbons).


      Section 2.

Definitions. As used in this administrative regulation, all terms not defined

herein shall have the meaning given them in 401 KAR 50:010.

"Classification date" means April 9, 1972.


      Section 3. Standard

for Hydrocarbons. No person shall emit into the atmosphere a waste gas stream

from any ethylene producing plant unless the waste gas stream is subjected to

temperatures of 1,300°F for three-tenths (0.3) second or greater in a

direct-flame afterburner or equally effective catalytic vapor incinerator.

Either device must be equipped with an indicating pyrometer which is positioned

in the working area at the operator's eye level. (5 Ky.R. 480; Am. 1053; eff.
