(a) The provisions of this subpart are applicable to discharges resulting from the manufacture of electronic crystals.

(b) [Reserved]

§469.21   Compliance dates.

The compliance date for the BAT fluoride limitation is as soon as possible as determined by the permit writer but in no event later than November 8, 1985. The compliance date for PSES for total toxic organics (TTO) is July 1, 1984 and for arsenic is November 8, 1985.

§469.22   Specialized definitions.

The definitions in 40 CFR part 401 and the chemical analysis methods in 40 CFR part 136 apply to this subpart. In addition,

(a) The term “total toxic organics (TTO)” means the sum of the concentrations for each of the following toxic organic compounds which is found in the discharge at a concentration greater than ten (10) micrograms per liter:

1,2,4 Trichlorobenzene chloroform

1,2 Dichlorobenzene

1,3, Dichlorobenzene

1,4, Dichlorobenzene ethylbenzene

1,1,1 Trichloroethane methylene chloride naphthalene

1,1 Dichloroethylene

2,4,6 Trichlorophenol carbon tetrachloride

1,2 Dichloroethane

1,1,2 Trichloroethane dichlorobromomethane

(b) The term “electronic crystals” means crystals or crystalline material which because of their unique structural and electronic properties are used in electronic devices. Examples of these crystals are crystals comprised of quartz, ceramic, silicon, gallium arsenide, and idium arsenide.

(c) The term “manufacture of electronic crystals” means the growing of crystals and/or the production of crystal wafers for use in the manufacture of electronic devices.

[48 FR 15394, Apr. 8, 1983, as amended at 48 FR 45250, Oct. 4, 1983]

§469.23   Monitoring.

The certification alternative to monitoring for Total Toxic Organics (TTO) described in §469.13 (a), (b), (c), and (d) is applicable to this subpart.

(Approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 2040-0074)
