(2) It removes, alters, disposes of, or stores pollutants, contaminants, wastes or heat, which, but for the facility, would be released into the environment.

(3) The applicant is in compliance with all regulations of Federal agencies applicable to use of the facility, including conditions specified in any permit issued to the applicant under section 13 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899, as amended.

(4) The facility furthers the general policies of the United States and the States in the prevention and abatement of pollution.

(5) The applicant has complied with all the other requirements of this part and has submitted all requested information.

(b) In determining whether use of a facility furthers the general policies of the United States and the States in the prevention and abatement of water pollution, the Regional Administrator shall consider whether such facility is consistent with the following, insofar as they are applicable to the waters which will be affected by the facility:

(1) All applicable water quality standards, including water quality criteria and plans of implementation and enforcement established pursuant to section 10 (c) of the Act or State laws or regulations;

(2) Recommendations issued pursuant to section 10 (e) and (f) of the Act;

(3) Water pollution control programs established pursuant to section 3 or 7 of the Act.

(c) In determining whether use of a facility furthers the general policies of the United States and the States in the prevention and abatement of air pollution, the Regional Administrator shall consider whether such facility is consistent with and meets the following requirements, insofar as they are applicable to the air which will be affected by the facility;

(1) Plans for the implementation, maintenance, and enforcement of ambient air quality standards adopted or promulgated pursuant to section 110 of the Act;

(d) A facility which removes elements or compounds from fuels which would be released as pollutants when such fuels are burned may not be certified whether or not such facility is used in connection with the applicant's plant or property where such fuels are burned.

(e) Where a facility is used in connection with more than one plant or other property, one or more of which were not in operation prior to January 1, 1969, or where a facility will perform a function other than the removal, alteration, storage or disposal of pollutants, contaminants, wastes, or heat, the Regional Administrator will so indicate on the notice of certification and will approve or disapprove the applicant's suggested method of allocation of costs. If the Regional Administrator disapproves the applicant's suggested method, he shall identify the proportion of costs allocable to each such plant, or to the removal, alteration, storage or disposal of pollutants, contaminants, wastes, or heat. $ 20.9 Cost recovery.

Within such 30-day period, the applicant may submit to the Regional Administrator such evidence, data or other written materials as the applicant may deem appropriate to show why the certification hereunder should not be revoked. Notification of a revocation under this section shall be given to the Secretary of the Treasury or his delegate. See 26 CFR 1.169–4(b) (1).
