at a coating manufacturing site; and
(B) 200,000 pounds of dry powder per year for all operations
at a coating manufacturing site.
(2) Operations involving powders which contain more
than 0.1% by weight of chromium, cadmium, asbestos, lead, arsenic, cobalt,
or strontium are not authorized by this section.
(3) The following conditions must be met to prevent and
(A) There shall be no visible emissions from any emission point.
(B) Bags or sacks of dry powders shall be opened within an
