      NECESSITY,

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

Cabinet to promulgate administrative regulations for the prevention, abatement,

and control of air pollution. This administrative regulation provides for the

regional control of nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions from portland cement

manufacturing plants pursuant to the federal mandate published under the NOx

SIP Call. This administrative regulation is not more stringent nor otherwise

different than the provisions allowed under the federal mandate.

 

      Section

1. Applicability. This administrative regulation shall apply to a portland

cement manufacturing plant with process rates, on or after January 1, 1995,

equal to or greater than:

      (1)

Twelve (12) tons of clinker per hour for a long dry kiln;

      (2)

Ten (10) tons of clinker per hour for a long wet kiln;

      (3)

Sixteen (16) tons of clinker per hour for a preheater kiln; or

      (4)

Twenty-two (22) tons of clinker per hour for a precalciner or

preheater/precalciner kiln.

 

      Section

2. Standard for Kilns. (1) On and after May 31, 2004, the owner or operator of

a kiln specified in Section 1 of this administrative regulation shall, during a

control period, operate the kiln so that NOx emissions do not exceed six and

six-tenths (6.6) lbs per ton of clinker averaged over a thirty (30) day rolling

period.

      (2)

The requirements in subsection (1) of this section shall not apply during:

      (a)

Periods of start-up, shutdown, or malfunction that do not exceed thirty-six

(36) consecutive hours; and

      (b)

Regularly scheduled maintenance activities.

 

      Section

3. Reporting, Monitoring, and Recordkeeping for Kilns. (1) Reporting

requirements. The owner or operator of a kiln specified in Section 1 of this

administrative regulation shall submit the following reports to the cabinet at

the locations specified in Section 4 of this administrative regulation:

      (a)

By May 31, 2004, a report that includes:

      1.

The number and types of kilns;

      2.

The name and address of the plant where the kilns are located; and

      3.

The name and telephone number of the person responsible for demonstrating that

the kiln is in compliance.

      (b)

By October 31 each year, beginning in 2004, a report that documents the total

NOx emissions from the kiln during the control period.

      (2)

Monitoring requirements. Beginning April 1, 2004, the owner or operator of a

kiln specified in Section 1 of this administrative regulation shall monitor NOx

emissions during each control period in accordance with provisions in 40 CFR

96.70 to 96.76.

      (3)

Recordkeeping requirements. An owner or operator of a kiln specified in Section

1 of this administrative regulation shall maintain all records necessary to

demonstrate compliance with the standards in Section 2 of this administrative

regulation for a period of two (2) years. These records shall:

      (a)

Be kept at the facility where the kiln is located;

      (b)

Be made available to the cabinet or the U.S. EPA upon request; and

      (c)

Contain the following information:

      1.

Emissions, in pounds of NOx per ton of clinker, from the kiln;

      2.

The results of all performance tests;

      3.

Daily production records; and

      4.

The date, time, and duration of all startups, shutdowns, or malfunctions in the

operation of the kiln or emissions monitoring equipment.

4. Reporting to the Cabinet. Reports required to be submitted to the cabinet

shall be mailed to:
