VOCs are a pre-cursor to ozone and the NMED does not require an individual ozone ambient impact analysis for each application. To determine compliancewith national ambient air quality standards for ozone, NMED uses air monitors to monitor ozone concentrations. A full review will evaluate the estimated emission rates for the pollutants listed in this public notice and determine compliance with ambient air quality requirements and standards.Based on the applicant's analysis, a preliminary determination is that this facility will comply with therequirements of Title 20, New Mexico Administrative Code (NMAC), Chapter 2, Parts 3, 61, 72, 73, 75 and 77; 40 CFR 50; 40 CFR 60 Subpart A; 40 CFR 60.40c Subpart Dc; and the New Mexico Air Quality Control Act.
