Regulatory Text:
Except as further provided in this Part, no person shall cause or allow the emission of particulate matter into the atmosphere in any one hour period from any new process emission source which, either alone or in combination with the emission of particulate matter from all other similar new process emission sources at a plant or premises, exceeds the allowable emission rates specified in Table 2.1 and in Figure 2.1.

Interpolated and extrapolated values of the data in Table 2.1 for process weight rates greater than or equal to 450 tons per hour shall be determined by using the equation: E = 24.8 (P)^0.16 where: E = allowable emission rate in pounds per hour and P = process weight rate in tons per hour.
