This document covers performance standards for facilities producing sotermed 'weak nitric acid'. The standards are: (a) 3.0 pounds of NOx per ton of acid produced or 1.5 kilogram NOx per metric ton. Acid production is expressed in tons of equivalent 100% strong nitric acid. Acid actually produced is 55-70 percent strength. (b) Visible air pollutants shall not be released to the atmosphere except for two minutes in any one hour of operation. These emission limits shall apply for all periods of operation except for the first four hours following startup.
