Section 211.7150  Volatile Organic Material (VOM) or Volatile Organic Compound (VOC)

 

"Volatile organic material" (also "VOM") or "volatile organic compound" (also "VOC") means any compound of carbon, excluding carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, carbonic acid, metallic carbides or carbonates, and ammonium carbonate, that participates in atmospheric photochemical reactions.

 

a)         This definition of VOM includes any organic compound that participates in atmospheric photochemical reactions, other than the compounds listed in this subsection (a).  USEPA has determined that the compounds listed in this subsection (a) have negligible photochemical reactivity.

b)         For purposes of determining VOM emissions and compliance with emissions limits, VOM will be measured by the test methods in the approved implementation plan or 40 CFR 60, appendix A, incorporated by reference at 35 Ill. Adm. Code 215.105, 218.112, and 219.112, as applicable, or by source-specific test methods that have been established under a permit issued under a program approved or promulgated under Title V of the Clean Air Act; under 35 Ill. Adm. Code 203; or under Section 9.1(d) of the Act.  If such a method also measures compounds with negligible photochemical reactivity, these negligibly reactive compounds may be excluded as VOM if the amount of those compounds is accurately quantified and the exclusion is approved by the Agency.

 

c)         As a precondition to excluding these negligibly-reactive compounds as VOM, or at any time thereafter, the Agency may require an owner or operator to provide monitoring or testing methods and results demonstrating, to the satisfaction of the Agency, the amount of negligibly reactive compounds in the source's emissions.

 

d)         The USEPA will not be bound by any State determination as to appropriate methods for testing or monitoring negligibly reactive compounds if the determination is not reflected in any of the test methods in subsection (b).
