Federal Emission Regulations for Boilers and Heaters – Part I of the Multi-Sector Air Pollutants Regulations
The Multi-Sector Air Pollutants Regulations require owners and operators of specific industrial facilities and equipment types to meet consistent performance standards across the country. The objectives of the Regulations are to:
- Limit the amount of nitrogen oxides (NOX) emitted from modern (new) and pre-existing (existing), gaseous-fuel-fired non-utility boilers and heaters used in many industrial facilities
- Limit the amount of NOX emitted from modern and pre-existing stationary spark-ignition gaseous-fuel-fired engines used by many industrial facilities (e.g., those used for gas compression or back-up generators)
- Limit the amount of NOX and sulphur dioxide (SO2) emitted from cement kilns
This presentation will focus on Part I of the Regulations – boilers and heaters. It will provide an overview of regulatory requirements by responding to the following 5 questions:
- Is my boiler or heater subject to these regulations?
- How do I categorize my boiler or heater based on its type, class and size?
- What are my emission requirements?
- What are my reporting and testing requirements?
- How do I apply for an Alternative Rule?
