This paper simplifies the understanding of the NOx compliance requirements by summarizing requirements in a four-box matrix. To understand the impact of these regulations on a facility, one must know its location (attainment or nonattainment area) and whether the generating source is an existing or a new/modified source. Additionally, one must understand the significant differences between the three levels of control technology required: reasonably available control technology (RACT), best available control technology (BACT), and lowest achievable emission rate (LAER). This paper explains these relevant terms and, through the use of a four-box matrix, explains requirements for existing major sources (due by May 31, 1995) and for new/modified sources.
