(1) This division applies in all areas of the state.

(2) Subject to the requirements in this division and OAR 340-200-0010(3), LRAPA is designated by the EQC to implement the rules in this division within its area of jurisdiction.

NOTE: This rule is included in the State of Oregon Clean Air Act Implementation Plan that EQC adopted under OAR 340-200-0040.

Definitions

The definitions in OAR 340-200-0020, 340-204-0010 and this rule apply to this division. If the same term is defined in this rule and 340-200-0020 or 340-204-0010, the definition in this rule applies to this division.

(1) "Dusts" means minute solid particles released into the air by natural forces or by mechanical processes such as crushing, grinding, milling, drilling, demolishing, shoveling, conveying, covering, bagging, or sweeping.

(2) "Hot mix asphalt plants" means those facilities and equipment which convey or batch load proportioned quantities of cold aggregate to a drier, and heat, dry, screen, classify, measure, and mix the aggregate with asphalt for purposes of paving, construction, industrial, residential, or commercial use.

(3) "Portable hot mix asphalt plants" means those hot mix asphalt plants which are designed to be dismantled and are transported from one job site to another job site.

(4) "Process weight" means the total weight of all materials introduced into any specific process which process may cause any discharge into the atmosphere. Solid fuels charged will be considered as part of the process weight, but liquid and gaseous fuels and combustion air will not. The "process weight per hour" will be derived by dividing the total process weight by the number of hours in one complete operation from the beginning of any given process to the completion thereof, excluding any time during which the equipment is idle.

(5) "Special control areas" means an area designated in OAR 340-204-0070 and:

(a) Any incorporated city or within six miles of the city limits of said incorporated city;

(b) Any area of the state within one mile of any structure or building used for a residence;

(c) Any area of the state within two miles straight line distance or air miles of any paved public road, highway, or freeway having a total of two or more traffic lanes.

NOTE: This rule is included in the State of Oregon Clean Air Act Implementation Plan that EQC adopted under OAR 340-200-0040.

Control Facilities Required

(1) No person may operate any hot mix asphalt plant, either portable or stationary, located within any area of the state outside special control areas unless all dusts and gaseous effluents generated by the hot mix asphalt plant are controlled by a control device or devices with a removal efficiency for particulate matter of at least 80 percent by weight. To determine compliance with this standard, the owner or operator must conduct a particulate matter source test using DEQ Method 5 at the inlet and outlet of the control device. If it is not feasible to conduct a particulate matter source test at the inlet to the control device, the owner or operator must provide documentation demonstrating that the control device is designed to meet the standard and prepare and implement an operation and maintenance plan for ensuring that the control device will have at least an 80 percent removal efficiency when operated.

(2) No person may operate any hot mix asphalt plant, either portable or stationary, located within any special control area of the state without installing and operating systems or processes for the control of particulate emissions so as to comply with the emission limits established by the process weight table, OAR 340-236-8010, attached herewith and by reference made a part of this rule. Compliance is determined using DEQ Method 5. All source tests must be done using the DEQ Source Sampling Manual.

(3) Hot mix asphalt plants are subject to the emission limitations in OAR 340-208-0110(1), 340-226-0210, and 340-238-0060, as applicable.

(4) If requested by DEQ, the owner or operator must develop a fugitive emission control plan.

NOTE: This rule is included in the State of Oregon Clean Air Act Implementation Plan that EQC adopted under OAR 340-200-0040.

Ancillary Sources of Emission — Housekeeping of Plant Facilities

(1) Ancillary air contamination sources from a hot mix asphalt plant and its facilities which emit air contaminants into the atmosphere such as, but not limited to, the drier openings, screening and classifying system, hot rock elevator, bins, hoppers, and pug mill mixer, must be controlled at all times so as to maintain the highest possible level of air quality and the lowest possible discharge of air contaminants.

(2) The handling of aggregate and truck traffic must be conducted at all times so as to minimize emissions into the atmosphere.
