§ WCI.20 General Stationary Combustion

§ WCI.21 Source Category Definition

General stationary fuel combustion sources are devices that combust solid, liquid, or gaseous fuel for the purpose of generating steam (or providing useful heat or energy) for industrial, commercial, or institutional use; or reducing the volume of waste by removing combustible matter. General stationary combustion sources are boilers, combustion turbines, engines, incinerators, and process heaters, and any other stationary combustion device that is not specifically addressed under the provisions for another source category in this rule.

Note: The source category definition may need to be revised after the remaining ER sections are completed.

§ WCI.22 Greenhouse Gas Reporting Requirements

The emissions data report shall include the following information at the facility level:

a) Annual greenhouse gas emissions in metric tons, reported as follows:

1) Total CO2 emissions for fossil fuels, reported by fuel type.
1) Total CO2 emissions for all biomass fuels combined.
1) Total CH4 emissions for all fuels combined.
2) Total N2O emissions for all fuels combined.

a) Annual fuel consumption:

1) For gases, report in units of million cubic meters.
2) For liquids, report in units of liters.
3) For non-biomass solids, report in units of metric tons.
4) For biomass-derived solid fuels, report in units of bone dry short tons or bone dry metric tons.

b) Average carbon content of each fuel, if used to compute CO2 emissions.

c) Average high heating value of each fuel, as used to compute CO2 emissions.

d) Annual steam generation in pounds or kilograms, for units that burn biomass or municipal solid waste.

Please note that most of the calculation methodologies in this section currently accommodate inputs in English units, only, and not SI units. The section will be revised to allow inputs in SI units, as well as to...
