§ 102.116  DESTRUCTION REMOVAL EFFICIENCY; ACCEPTABLE AMBIENT LEVELS.
   (A)   No person or entity shall burn any hazardous waste in an industrial furnace or boiler within the city limits of the city unless:
      (1)   Within 24 months of the effective date of this subchapter, the facility accomplishes either:
         (a)   A test burn essentially similar to that conducted by Rhone-Poulenc Basic Chemicals Co. (RPBC) for their facility in Houston, Texas as described in the January 27, 1992 Test Burn Plan; or
         (b)   A trial burn essentially similar to that submitted by RPBC in its Part B application dated January 14, 1994, as same may be subsequently amended and approved by US-EPA and/or IDEM, and demonstrates a Destruction and Removal Efficiency (DRE) of not less than 99.9999% for carbon tetrachloride, or an alternative Principal Organic Hazardous Constituent (“POHC”) selected by the owner or operator of the facility, pursuant to either the test burn or the trial burn.  The owner or operator of the facility shall prepare a report of the DRE demonstrated by the industrial furnace or boiler during such trial burn or test burn, a copy of which report shall be furnished to HDEM in a timely manner.  All stack emissions test costs and DRE test costs shall be borne entirely by the owner or operator of the facility.
      (2)   Upon completion of the trial burn or test burn report for whichever test, division (A)(1)(a) or (A)(1)(b) of this section, is used to demonstrate a 99.9999% DRE for carbon tetrachloride, or an alternative Principal Organic Hazardous Constituent (“POHC”) selected by the owner or operator of the facility, the owner or operator of the facility shall establish facility operating conditions in a timely manner which are no less stringent than the operating conditions that were employed during the trial burn or test burn to demonstrate compliance with division (A)(1) of this section.  The operating conditions will be maintained at all times during which the facility is engaged in the burning of hazardous waste, and shall include industrial furnace operating temperature, volumetric flow rate and excess industrial furnace oxygen all measured within the combustion unit, and the Hazardous Waste Feed Rate (in pounds per hour).  The carbon monoxide concentrations (as measured at the exit of the electrostatic precipitators) cannot exceed 100 ppmv on an hourly rolling average basis continuously corrected to 7% oxygen and on a dry gas basis.
      (3)   In addition, the owner or operator of the facility shall establish a maximum hazardous waste feed rate (in pounds per hour) for the feed to the industrial furnace or boiler corresponding to the maximum hazardous waste feed rate that was used during the trial burn or test burn to demonstrate a DRE of not less than 99.9999% for the selected POHC.
      (4)   No hazardous waste may be burned in the industrial furnace or boiler that contains greater than 100 ppm of the organic hazardous constituents which have an individual heat of combustion lower than that of the POHC that was used for the purpose of demonstrating a DRE of 99.9999% during the initial or any subsequent trial burn or test burn.
      (5)   The owner or operator of the facility shall periodically conduct a trial burn as required by its RCRA Permit to demonstrate compliance with RCRA regulations.  Concurrently with this trial burn, but with a frequency of at least once every 5 years, the owner or operator will repeat the trial burn or test burn referenced in division (A)(1) of this section as necessary to demonstrate that it continues to achieve a DRE of 99.9999% for carbon tetrachloride, or an alternative POHC selected by the owner or operator of the facility.  Upon completion of this periodic repeat of the trial burn or test burn, the owner or operator of the facility shall update the facility operating conditions, maximum hazardous waste feed rate, and allowable POHC’s as described above for the initial trial burn or test burn.
      (6)   Within 3 months of the effective date of this subchapter, the owner or operator of the facility shall establish, with the Director of HDEM, a reasonable schedule for the purchase and installation of a remote display of key operating conditions for the industrial furnace or boiler on a monitor to be located in HDEM’s office.  The monitor shall display, on a “real time” basis, the operating conditions referenced in division (A)(2) of this section, as well as the hazardous waste feed rate, sulfur dioxide concentration at the blower of the industrial furnace or boiler, the concentration of total unburned hydrocarbons at the exit of the stack from the industrial furnace or boiler, the pressure measured at the industrial furnace, the total acid feed rate to the industrial furnace and the total sulfur feed rate to the industrial furnace.  The remote display monitor, including all attendant hardware, software and equipment, shall be purchased, and installed, at the sole expense of the owner or operator.
      (7)   The owner or operator of the facility shall provide sufficient funds to HDEM on an annual basis to cover the cost of routine maintenance and repairs of the remote monitoring system described in division (A)(6) of this section, as well as provide sufficient funds to cover the cost of routine operating, maintenance and repair costs for the van and air monitoring equipment described in Section 5.2, paragraph f of “The Inspector Ordinance”; provided, however, that the aggregate funding for all of these purposes shall not exceed $10,000 per year.
   (B)   The owner or operator of the facility shall comply with all applicable testing requirements and emissions limits for metals as established by U.S. EPA.
