The proposed installation must comply with all federal and State imposed air pollution emissions limitations and toxic air pollutant screening levels, as well as the federal National Ambient Air Quality Standards for six (6) criteria pollutants, i.e., sulfur dioxide, particulate matter, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, and lead.  
 
The Department will conduct an engineering and air quality review of the application.  Expected air pollution emissions will be determined using methods such as U.S. EPA established emissions factors, performance test data, manufacturer guarantees or other approved methods.  The projected emissions cannot cause the proposed installation to exceed federal and State air pollution standards. 
In general, the proposed installation must meet federal and State opacity standards applicable to crushing and screening plants and engines, the facility must use wet suppression or other reasonable precautions to prevent particulate matter from leaving the property, the facility must develop and comply with a fugitive dust plan that addresses the methods used to prevent fugitive dust from equipment, operations, and plant roads from leaving the property, must not emit any toxic air pollutants in excess of the levels allowed by State regulations, and the facility must use diesel fuel in the engine(s) that meet applicable sulfur content limits.  The facility is also required to conduct initial opacity observation tests to demonstrate compliance within 180 days of initial startup.
