(3) An application must discuss the environmental
effects, if any, of operating the facility at less than full capacity,
including effects on the operation of associated facilities and the resulting
effects on air and water quality due to changes in the levels or composition of
emissions and waste streams.
(4) An application must contain a descriptive
analysis of materials such as air, water, coal and chemical compounds that
would flow into the proposed facility, including an analysis of fuel materials
used for start-up of the facility.
The analysis must include at least the following:
(a) consumption rate;
(b) detailed chemical and radiological content of
all input materials;
(c) heat content of fuel materials; and
(d) material and energy flow diagrams, including
heat and radiant energy flows, to illustrate the path of major materials
through the facility, qualitatively and quantitatively.
(5) An application must contain a qualitative and
quantitative analysis of all materials that are projected to flow out of the
facility. The analysis must include
detailed chemical content of all output material based on the best information
available, including material with radiological content. The method of using, treating, dispersing
and disposing of materials in each of the following categories shall be
discussed, including the method of monitoring the use, treatment, dispersal,
disposal and ultimate reclamation of waste sites, as applicable, for each of
the following categories:
(a) products and by-products such as gas and
(b) waste materials, including gases, liquids, and
(c) energy forms such as heat that escape during
(d) for coal conversion facilities which are
proposed to produce more than one major product, the capability for alternative
fuels production or capacity to alter the product mix of facility output; and
(e) for associated powerlines and pipelines, a description meeting the
requirements of ARM 17.20.1512.
(6) An application must contain an estimate of the
on-line life of the facility and the projected operating capacity during
the on-line life.
