Where:

E30 = 30 operating day average emissions rate of NOX, lb NOX/ton of 100 percent HNO3;

Ci = concentration of NOX for hour i, ppmv;

Qi = volumetric flow rate of effluent gas for hour i, where Ci and Qi are on the same basis (either wet or dry), scf/hr;

Pi = total acid produced during production hour i, tons 100 percent HNO3;

k = conversion factor, 1.194 × 10−7 for NOX; and

n = number of operating hours in the 30 operating day period, i.e., n is between 30 and 720.
