From a compliance evaluation standpoint, it is desirable to have separate standards for each affected operation in the industry. In practice, however, it often may be difficult to do so. This section identifies alternative air pollution control regulations and discusses enforcement aspects of these regulations.
"Malfunction" means any sudden and unavoidable failure of air pollution control equipment or process equipment, or the failure of a process to operate in a normal or usual manner; however, such failures that are caused entirely or in part by poor maintenance, careless operation, or any other preventable improper function or preventable
Promote a national consensus for emission-estimation methods/procedures; More than 2,000 CAFOs in the U.S. have signed agreements with the EPA regarding air compliance plans. Air emissions from representative farms across the nation were monitored for two years on a 24/7 basis.

Oxygen can be supplied to the biofilm, either concurrently or countercurrently with water flow. Aeration occurs passively by the natural flow of air through the process (three phase biofilter) or by forced air supplied by blowers. Microorganisms' activity is a key-factor of the process performance.

South Coast Air Quality Management District, Rule 1157 "PM10 Emission Reductions from Aggregate and Related
Emissions of PM, PM-10, and PM-2.5 occur from a number of operations in stone quarrying and processing. A substantial portion of these emissions consists of heavy particles that may settle out within the plant. As in other operations, crushed stone emission sources may be categorized as either process sources or fugitive dust sources.
The air pollution emissions which occur during the drilling process are controlled by a small baghouse mounted directly on the air compressor/drill unit. Because Caldwell Stone drills 80-foot holes instead of nominal 30-foot holes used by most quarries, the water injection technique for controlling dust emissions from the drilling process is ...

AIR EMISSION REPORTING AND PERMITTING REQUIREMENTS In Colorado, obtaining an air permit is a two-step process. The first step is to report your air emissions through the submission of an Air Pollution Emission Notice (APEN) to the Division. For businesses with emissions above permitting thresholds, the second step involves
