These regulations set limits on the sulfur content of allowable fuels (1.0% by weight, dry basis) for combustion, as well as for the heat input of any fuel burning equipment (250,000 Btu/hour). These limits may be exceeded provided that the operator demonstrates that actual sulfur emissions do not exceed 1.1 pounds per million Btu of heat input. Some exceptions, including the use of fuels with higher sulfur contents during fuel emergencies, apply. The regulations also contain provisions for fuel analyses, fuel merchants, sulfuric acid plants, sulfur recovery plants, non-ferrous smelters, and sulfite pump mills.
