Last Update: 8/17/2006
Fiberglass Production Furnace and Manufacturing Line, Natural Gas-Fired
|Pollutant||Achieved in Practice or in the SIP||Technologically Feasible||Alternate Basic Equipment|
|CO||Natural gas firing and use of cullet > 30% annual average; 1.0 lb-CO/ton|
|NOx||1.45 lb/ton with no nitrate, 4.0 lb/ton with nitrate (Oxy-fuel natural gas or equivalent) at final stack (including manufacturing line except forehearths)||electric furnace with cullet > 30% annual average|
|PM10||Electrostatic Precipitator in series with Scrubber (98% CE); 0.25 lb-PM10/ton|
|SOx||Scrubber, natural gas firing with low sulfur backup fuel oil (< 0.0015% sulfur by weight), and use of cullet > 30% annual average||electric furnace with cullet > 30% annual average|
|VOC||Natural gas firing and use of cullet (scrap glass) > 30% annual average; 0.25 lb-VOC/ton||electric furnace with cullet > 30% annual average|
BACT is the most stringent control technique for the emissions unit and class of source. Control techniques that are not achieved in practice or contained in s a state implementation plan must be cost effective as well as feasible. Economic analysis to demonstrate cost effectiveness is requried for all determinations that are not achieved in practice or contained in an EPA approved State Implementation Plan.
This is a Summary Page for this Class of Source. For background information, see Permit Specific BACT Determinations on Details Page.
