Regulations are current to 2019-08-28

SCHEDULE 6(Section 4, subparagraph 14(1)(a)(i), section 40 and paragraphs 43(1)(a) to (f))Initial Report (Boilers and Heaters) — Information Required

  • 1 The following information respecting the responsible person:

    • (a) an indication as to whether they are an owner or operator, or both, of the boiler or heater and their name and civic address;

    • (b) the name, title, civic and postal addresses, telephone number, email address and fax number, if any, of their authorized official; and

    • (c) the name, title, civic and postal addresses, telephone number, email address and fax number, if any, of a contact person, if different from the authorized official.

  • 2 The following information respecting the facility at which the boiler or heater is located:

    • (a) the civic address of the facility or, if there is no civic address, its latitude and longitude;

    • (b) its National Pollutant Release Inventory identification number assigned by the Minister for the purpose of section 48 of the Act and its provincial identification number, if any; and

    • (c) an indication as to which paragraph of subsection 5(2) of these Regulations describes it.

  • 3 The following information — if it has changed since the most recent report that the responsible person has provided to the Minister — respecting the boiler or heater:

    • (a) for each responsible person for the boiler or heater, other than the responsible person referred to in paragraph 1(a), if any,

      • (i) their name and civic address, and

      • (ii) an indication as to whether they are an owner or operator, or both;

    • (b) an indication as to whether it is a boiler or a heater;

    • (c) the name of its manufacturer, along with its serial number, make and model;

    • (d) its rated capacity;

    • (e) its identifier, if any, within the facility where it is located;

    • (f) its commissioning date and recommissioning date, if any;

    • (g) if its commissioning date is within three months after the day on which these Regulations are registered, an indication as to whether it is packaged;

    • (h) for a class 80 or a class 70 boiler or heater that has undergone a major modification, a description of the major modification, including the serial number of its burners if they have been changed;

    • (i) for a modern boiler for which there has been a determination of its thermal efficiency made in accordance with section 18 of these Regulations, the result of each of those determinations and the date on which each was made;

    • (j) for a modern heater for which there has been a determination of the difference between the temperature of its preheated air and the ambient air made in accordance with section 24 of these Regulations, the result of each of those determinations and the date on which each was made;

    • (k) for a boiler or heater for which the determination by means of one or more stack tests of its NOx emission intensity for an initial test is referred to in paragraph 33(2)(a) or subparagraph 33(2)(b)(i) of these Regulations, for the stack test that determined the greatest NOx emission intensity and for the stack test that determined the most recent NOx emission intensity from among those stack tests conducted in the reference period or each applicable period within the reference period referred to in subsection 33(5) of these Regulations, respectively,

      • (i) the NOx emission intensity that was determined,

      • (ii) the date on which that stack test was conducted,

      • (iii) confirmation that each test run of the stack test was conducted while the boiler or heater met the conditions set out in paragraphs 27(2)(a) to (e) of these Regulations,

      • (iv) for modern boilers or heaters, an indication as to whether the type of gaseous fossil fuel that was combusted during that stack test was natural gas or alternative gas, and

      • (v) the method set out in subsection 28(1) of these Regulations that was used for the stack test to measure the concentration of NOx and, if an alternative rule as approved under subsection 113(1) of these Regulations to replace a rule set out in that method was used, an indication of that rule, as approved, and of the rule it replaced; and

    • (l) for a boiler or heater for which the determination by means of a CEMS test of its NOx emission intensity for an initial test is referred to in paragraph 33(2)(a) or subparapraph 33(2)(b)(ii) of these Regulations,

      • (i) for each averaging period in the reference period,

        • (A) the day and hour when the averaging period began,

        • (B) the number of hours in the averaging period,

        • (C) confirmation that at least 50% of the input energy in the boiler’s or heater’s combustion chamber resulted from the introduction of gaseous fossil fuel for each of those hours,

        • (D) for modern boilers or heaters, an indication as to whether type of the gaseous fossil fuel that was combusted was natural gas or alternative gas, and

        • (E) the NOx emission intensity, being the greatest of the rolling hourly averages that were determined for the NOx emission intensity,

      • (ii) an indication as to whether the EC CEMS Code or the Alberta CEMS Code was used and, if an alternative rule as approved under subsection 113(1) of these Regulations to replace a rule set out in that CEMS Reference Method was used, an indication of that rule, as approved, and of the rule it replaced, and

      • (iii) for a determination referred to in paragraph 33(2)(a), the name of the manufacturer, along with the serial number, make and model and the identifier, if any, within the facility where the other boiler or heater — on which the CEMS test referred to in paragraph 26(2)(b) was conducted — is located.
