§98.226 Data reporting requirements.
In addition to the information required by §98.3(c), each annual report must contain the information specified in paragraphs (a) through (p) of this section.
(a) Nitric Acid train identification number.
(b) Annual process N2O emissions from each nitric acid train (metric tons).
(d) Annual nitric acid production from each nitric acid train during which N2O abatement technology is operating (ton acid produced, 100 percent acid basis).
(e) Annual nitric acid production from the nitric acid facility (tons, 100 percent acid basis).
(f) Number of nitric acid trains.
(g) Number of different N2O abatement technologies per nitric acid train “t”.
(h) Abatement technologies used (if applicable).
(i) Abatement technology destruction efficiency for each abatement technology (percent destruction).
(j) Abatement utilization factor for each abatement technology (fraction of annual production that abatement technology is operating).
(k) Type of nitric acid process used for each nitric acid train (low, medium, high, or dual pressure).
(l) Number of times in the reporting year that missing data procedures were followed to measure nitric acid production (months).
(m) If you conducted a performance test and calculated a site-specific emissions factor according to §98.223(a)(1), each annual report must also contain the information specified in paragraphs (m)(1) through (7) of this section.
(1) Emission factor calculated for each nitric acid train (lb N2O/ton nitric acid, 100 percent acid basis).
(2) Test method used for performance test.
(3) Production rate per test run during performance test (tons nitric acid produced/hr, 100 percent acid basis).
(4) N2O concentration per test run during performance test (ppm N2O).
(5) Volumetric flow rate per test run during performance test (dscf/hr).
(6) Number of test runs during performance test.
(7) Number of times in the reporting year that a performance test had to be repeated (number).
(n) If you requested Administrator approval for an alternative method of determining N2O emissions under §98.223(a)(2), each annual report must also contain the information specified in paragraphs (n)(1) through (4) of this section.
(1) Name of alternative method.
(2) Description of alternative method.
(3) Request date.
(4) Approval date.
(p) Fraction control factor for each abatement technology (percent of total emissions from the nitric acid train that are sent to the abatement technology) if Equation V-3c is used.
