Air PBR 106.148: Material Unloading
Railcar or truck unloading of wet sand, gravel, aggregate, coal, lignite, and scrap iron or scrap steel (but not including metal ores, metal oxides, battery parts, or fine dry materials) into trucks or other railcars for transportation to other locations is permitted by rule if it meets the conditions stated in Title 30, Texas Administrative Code (30 TAC), Section 106.148. To qualify for this permit by rule (PBR), your facility must also meet the general conditions stated in 30 TAC Section 106.4.
To find out whether your facility meets the general conditions stated in Section 106.4, complete our PBR Applicability Checklist, TCEQ Form - 10149.
Be sure your facility does not exceed the emission limits of 25 tons of particulate matter per year as stated in Section 106.4. If you cannot comply with this limit, see Types of New Source Review Authorizations for other options.
This PBR does not require you to register or pay a fee.
Under 30 TAC Section 106.8, your records must identify the rules under which your facility is operating and demonstrate compliance for a rolling 12-month period. Be sure you keep at least these records:
- a copy of Section 106.4
- a copy of Section 106.148
- records documenting compliance with the above rules
These records must be kept on site and readily available on request for inspection by the TCEQ or any air pollution control program that has jurisdiction. If you have questions about the type of records you should keep, contact the Air Program in the TCEQ regional office that serves your county.
