pollution sources, both combustion and non‑combustion.  The following

system for classifying air pollution sources shall be used:

(1)           "Class I‑C" includes all

sources of air pollution using fuel burning equipment for the production of

heat to generate electricity for public use.

(2)           "Class II‑C" includes all

sources of air pollution using fuel burning equipment for the production of

steam, and for other process uses at commercial and industrial establishments.

(3)           "Class III‑C" includes all

sources of air pollution using fuel burning equipment for comfort heating at

institutional, commercial or industrial establishments, or apartment houses

having a central heating system serving more than four apartments.

(4)           "Class IV‑C" includes all

sources of air pollution burning trash, rubbish, refuse, or similar materials

in incinerators, teepee burners, or similar devices.

(5)           "Class V‑C" includes all

sources of air pollution using fuel burning equipment for comfort heating that

are not included in Class III‑C.

(6)           "Class VI‑C" includes all

sources of air pollution using internal combustion engines.

(7)           "Class I‑I" includes all

sources of air pollution resulting from industrial plants engaged in the

manufacture of chemicals or allied products whose processes depend on the

chemical reaction of two or more elements or compounds and includes plants producing

acids, fertilizer materials, dyestuff, synthetic fibers and industrial gases.

(8)           "Class II‑I" includes all

sources of air pollution resulting from industrial plants engaged in the

production of pulp and paper.

(9)           "Class III‑I" includes all

sources of air pollution resulting from the mining and processing of minerals,

stone, clay and cement products, and includes phosphate ore, mica and feldspar

operations, stone quarries and crushers, cement plants, concrete mixing plants,

and masonry block plants.

(10)         "Class IV‑I" includes all

sources of air pollution resulting from industrial operations using petroleum

products, and includes asphalt mix plants, roofing felt plants, and petroleum

products storage areas.

(11)         "Class V‑I" includes all

sources of air pollution resulting from furniture, lumber, or wood product

plants.

(12)         "Class VI‑I" includes all

sources of air pollution resulting from textile manufacturing, textile dyeing

or finishing plants.

(13)         "Class VII‑I" includes all

sources of air pollution resulting from the shelling, drying, storage, ginning

and processing of tobacco, corn, soybeans, peanuts, cotton, fruits, vegetables,

or other agricultural products.

(14)         "Class VIII‑I" includes all

sources of air pollution resulting from industries engaged in the processing of

metals, and includes smelting, casting foundries, metal working, and other

similar operations.

(15)         "Class IX‑I" includes all

sources of air pollution resulting from slaughtering and processing of meat,

poultry, fish, and similar products and from rendering or the recovering of by‑products

of these operations.

(16)         "Class X‑I" includes all

sources of air pollution resulting from industries which do not fall within the

classifications described in Subparagraphs (b)(7) through (b)(15) of this

Regulation.

These sources shall be controlled pursuant to the
