Flexible PSD Response required for each permit type to ensure correct conditional formatting throughout workbook. Unit Types-Emission Rates Used to generate MAERT Calculates emission increases and decreases Identifies actions associated with facilities Identifies Tier I BACT for most sources Identifies minimum monitoring requirements Unit Types Copying from MAERT Columns D-H match your MAERT, so you can copy
data from an existing MAERT. Unit Types Copy / Paste Do not cut, insert, or delete rows. Use paste as values or match destination formatting. Unit Types-Copy/Paste Restrictions Only copy and paste yellow cells; do not paste across columns M-N. Blank Table Worksheet
Formatting matches Unit Types-Emission Rates sheet No formulas Copy/paste/delete/insert Good place to add PM10 and PM2.5 Unit Types - Emission Rates Include all sources on the permit. If a control device controls multiple sources, list each source to address BACT and monitoring separately. Facility ID Number (FIN) Tank1 Tank2 Load Rack 1
Flare1 Emission Point Number (EPN) FLARE1 FLARE1 FLARE1 FLARE1 Source Name Tank1 Tank2 Truck Loading Flare
Pollutant VOC VOC VOC VOC NOx Unit Types - Entering Data Use drop-down or enter in a specific pollutant. Consistency matters! For example, CO wont be combined with Carbon Monoxide in Emissions Summary. A blank is treated as 0 to minimize data entry. You can enter <0.01 emission rate.
Data can have several decimal places. Unit Types- Industry Type Dont miss the industry type drop-down selection above the table! Permit primary industry Chemical / Energy (Select one) Chemical / Energy Coatings Combustion Mechanical / Agricultural / Construction Unit Types Dont forget Columns O and P
Do not miss columns (O-P), which trigger BACT and monitoring requirements to populate. Description for other will be used on BACT and Monitoring sheets. Consider the Effects Include in Emission Summary used for Public Notice Summary Only considers annual emissions, not hourly emissions Column A Action and Unit Type triggers BACT

Projects Requiring Impacts Review Include an impacts summary with submittal. Qualitative analysis Modeling & Effects Review Applicability (MERA) steps 0-2 If modeling is conducted, an EMEW is required. MERA steps 3-8 Site-wide Modeling (using screen or refined) PSD Permitting requires a protocol. BACT Tier I BACT will be populated. Expand the height of the row to see the full text. Additional details are required in red cells of the
additional notes column. Include Tier II, Tier III, and/or LAER in the additional notes column or as an attachment. BACT for Renewals Do not require current Tier 1 BACT. If source does not meet Tier 1, list the control technique currently in use. Must be economically feasible and technically practicable.
Added Action column to identify modified sources vs. renewed sources. Monitoring Minimum monitoring requirements populated. Attach additional information if necessary. Use the drop downs to indicate how emissions will be measured for pollutants above PSD major source thresholds. Federal Applicability Summary only Table 1F, 2F, 3F, 4F are still required, if applicable
Added optional dropdown to request a different ozone classification Added PSD/NA netting questions and instructions Take Advantage of Embedded Links Guidance on: Federal NSR applicability Impacts Analysis PBR incorporation SIC, NAICS, Texas Secretary of State Handling of Confidential Information Delinquent fee information
Additional Updates Alteration conditional formatting Red means amendment is required More Alteration, GHG and Renewal Cert conditional formatting Less information required Updated formulas in Public Notice tab for PM/PM10/PM2.5 Changed monitoring requirement to apply to FINS instead of EPNs
More Additional Updates Stack parameters not needed with EMEW BACT for bulk fuel terminal and facilities using plant fuel gas Improved Impacts sheet layout, dropdowns and guidance Unlocked columns for applicant internal notes All fees now on Fee sheet Still More Additional Updates Updated formulas not compatible with Excel 2013 Using versions and patch numbers in lieu of dates
