A brief description of the methodology(ies) the institution used to complete its air emissions inventory:

The University of South Florida maintains an air operation permit (Air Permit No. 0570480-014-AO) associated with the operation of three (3) boilers. Specifically, a
summary of applicable regulations and the facility regulatory classification is as follows: Federal Rule Citations • 40 CFR 60, Subpart Dc - Standards of Performance
for Small Industrial-Commercial-Institutional Steam Generating Units State Rule Citations • Rule 62-296.320, F.A.C. - General Pollutant Emission Limiting
Standards • Rule 62-296.406, F.A.C. – Fossil Fuel Steam Generators with Less Than 250 Million Btu Per Hour Heat Input, New and Existing Emissions Units Local
Rule Citations • Rules of the EPCHC, Chapter 1-3 - Stationary Air Pollution and Ambient Air Quality Standards Facility Regulatory Classification • The facility is not
a major source of hazardous air pollutants (HAP). • The facility does not operate units subject to the acid rain provisions of the Clean Air Act (CAA). • The facility is
not a Title V major source of air pollution in accordance with Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. • The facility is not a major stationary source in accordance with Rule 62-
212.400, F.A.C. for the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) of Air Quality. The air emissions inventory is developed as part of the permitting process and
applicability determination associated with the referenced air permit. Per permit and regulatory requirements, hours of operation and unit/facility fuel consumption
for emission sources are tracked/reported to determine compliance with applicable permit and regulatory standards. Further, the University utilizes the Space
Impact Process as well as the Building Code Administration process to review/approve proposed building and/or space modifications and construction. This process
is utilized to identify the addition and/or modification of potential emission sources on the campus.
