The volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from the facility will not equal or exceed 50 tons per year (TPY), based on a 12-month rolling sum. The NOx emissions from the facility will not equal or exceed 100 TPY, based on a 12-month rolling sum. Total PM, SOx, and CO emissions from the facility will not equal or exceed 100 TPY, based on a 12-month rolling sum. The hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) from the facility must never equal or exceed 10 TPY of any single HAP and must never equal or exceed 25 TPY of all aggregated HAPs, based on a 12-month rolling sum.
