SIP - ALASKA - 18 AAC 50.540
18 AAC 50.540. MINOR PERMIT: APPLICATION
(a) Application information. An application for a stationary source-specific minor permit must provide all of the information required by this section, including all information required by the applicable listed forms, unless the department specifies that the provision of one or more specific items makes the provision of additional items unnecessary for the department’s determination. Applications must be on department forms.
(b) General information. Each application must include the information prescribed by the Stationary Source Identification Form, included in the department’s Minor Permit Application Forms, adopted by reference in 18 AAC 50.030.
(c) Minor permit for air quality protection. Except for a Port of Anchorage stationary source, a permit application under 18 AAC 50.502 must include
(1) the information required in the following forms, included in the department’s Minor Permit Application Forms, adopted by reference in 18 AAC 50.030:
(d) Carbon monoxide source or modification. For construction that would increase carbon monoxide emissions by 100 TPY or more within 10 kilometers of a nonattainment area, an application must include a demonstration that the potential to emit carbon monoxide emissions from construction and operation of the stationary source or emissions increase from the modification will not cause or contribute to a violation of the ambient air quality standard for carbon monoxide.
(e) Port of Anchorage. For a Port of Anchorage stationary source, the application must include the information required in the department’s Air Quality Compliance Certification Procedures for Volatile Liquid Storage Tanks, Delivery Tanks, and Loading Racks, adopted by reference in 18 AAC 50.030.
(A) the Emission Unit Information Form;
(B) the Emission Summary Form; and
(2) for a permit for construction, modification, or relocation of a stationary source, a demonstration that the proposed potential emissions from the stationary source will not interfere with the attainment or maintenance of the ambient air quality standards; the ambient demonstration must follow an approved modeling protocol if the department requests a modeling protocol for demonstrating compliance with ambient air quality standards; unless the department has made a finding in writing that the stationary source or modification does not need an ambient analysis to determine that construction and operation will not result in a violation of an ambient air quality standard, the application must include an ambient analysis for
(A) each air pollutant for which a permit is required under
18 AAC 50.502(c)(1) or (3);
(B) sulfur dioxide, PM-10, and nitrogen dioxide for a portable oil and gas operation;
(C) sulfur dioxide for a stationary source in an sulfur dioxide special protection area established under 18 AAC 50.025(c); or
(D) an air pollutant for which the department requests an analysis for a stationary source classified under 18 AAC 50.502(b).
(f) Clean units. An application for a minor permit making a clean unit designation must include a demonstration that the unit meets the criteria for a clean unit in 40 C.F.R. 52.21(y)(3) and (4), adopted by reference in 18 AAC 50.040.
(g) Pollution control project (PCP). An application for a minor permit approving a pollution control project (PCP) exclusion must include the information listed in 40 C.F.R. 52.21(z)(3)(i) – (v), adopted by reference in 18 AAC 50.040.
(h) Plantwide applicability limitation (PAL). An application for a minor permit establishing or revising a plantwide applicability limitation (PAL) must include the information listed in 40 C.F.R. 52.21(aa)(3), adopted by reference in 18 AAC 50.040. As the department considers necessary to evaluate impacts on ambient air quality standards, the department will require the application to include a demonstration that emissions under the PAL will not cause or contribute to a violation of ambient air quality standards.
(i) Offsetting emissions. An application for a minor permit for a limitation to establish offsetting emissions must specify the physical or operational limitations necessary to provide actual emission reductions of the nonattainment air pollutant; including
(j) Owner requested limits (ORLs). An application for a minor permit establishing an owner requested limit (ORL) must include the information and materials required under
18 AAC 50.225(b)(2) – (7).
(k) Revising or rescinding permit conditions. An application for a minor permit revising or rescinding terms or conditions of a Title I permit must include
(1) a calculation of the expected reduction in actual emissions; and
(2) the emission limitation representing that quantity of emission reduction.
State effective: 12/3/05; EPA effective: 9/13/07
(1) a copy of the Title I permit that established the permit term or condition;
(2) an explanation of why the permit term or condition should be revised or rescinded;
(3) the effect of revising or revoking the permit term or condition on emissions, other permit terms, and compliance monitoring; and
(4) for a condition that allows an owner or operator to avoid a permit classification, the information required of an applicant for that type of permit, unless the revised condition would also allow the owner or operator to avoid the classification.
