Secondary Aluminum Sweat Furnaces

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has established an air general permit (AGP) under Rule 62-210.310(5)(k), Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.), for secondary aluminum sweat furnaces that are subject to the federal emission limiting standards and other requirements of Title 40 Part 63 of the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR 63), Subpart RRR, and that choose to comply with these requirements by installing and operating an afterburner device. Eligible sweat furnace owners are not required to use the secondary aluminum sweat furnace AGP, but instead may choose to obtain a regular air operating permit.

An AGP is an authorization by rule to construct or operate a specific type of air pollutant emitting facility. Use of such authorization by any individual facility does not require action by DEP. The terms and conditions of an AGP are set forth in the rule, rather than in a separately issued air construction or air operation permit.


You can register, renew, transfer or make administrative corrections to AGPs online.

If you do not wish to use AGPERS, you can optionally download and complete the following worksheet and mail it to DEP at the address indicated in the worksheet instructions along with the $100 processing fee.

For more information on AGPs or assistance with using AGPERS, please contact DEP’s Small Business Environmental Assistance Program at 1-800-722-7457.

For questions related to compliance procedures such as test notifications, report submittals, record keeping, inspections, etc., please contact the compliance authority specific to the county where your facility is located. If it’s located in Broward, Duval, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange, Palm Beach, Pinellas or Sarasota counties, visit our Local Program Air Contacts page. For all other counties, go to our District Air Contacts page.
