VOC0.20 g/bhp-hr (equivalent to 41 ppmvd @ 15% O2 as CH4)0.14 g/bhp-hr (equivalent to 30 ppmv @ 15% O2 as CH4)(Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) system)1. Fuel Cell (= or < 0.02 lb/MW-hr 2.0 ppmv VOC @ 15% O2 as CH4) 2. Microturbine


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.
