A. A facility may propose to the administrative authority a control plan for any pollutant that sets a mass emission rate equal to the sum of all sources within the facility or any combination of sources within the facility. The facility may control the emissions contained in the proposal any way it deems appropriate as long as the proposed mass emission rate is not violated. The facility will set emission rates for each proposed source within the facility that when accumulated will demonstrate compliance with the mass emission rate.
B. The administrative authority shall approve the use of the alternative emission reduction proposal if the facility can demonstrate that the proposal will not interfere with the attainment or maintenance of the ambient air quality standard for the pollutant for which the control plan is proposed.
