  • Boiler mact - what the new emissions limits on industrial boilers mean for you

    Generically known as “Boiler MACT”, the new possible industrial boiler limits directly address emissions of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) from industrial boilers and indirectly address the way that industrial sources operate their boilers. This white paper explains how Boiler MACT affects you and how to maintain operating flexibility while addressing compliance issues. The most ...

  • Contained Gas Rule Changes A Laymen`s Discussion On A Complicated Topic Today`s OXIDIZERS becoming Tomorrow`s INCINERATORS?

    New EPA regulations classifies "oxidizers" as "incinerators", meaning  if this is not changed, the emissions standards and regulatory requirements associated with operating oxidizers become much more complex because incineration rules specify extensive recordkeeping, monitoring and reporting requirements. Last month, when EPA released new rules affecting the combustion of solid wastes most ...

  • Estimation of HAP Emissions from Oil and Gas E&P Operation Wastes

    Wastes generated from oil and gas Exploration and Production (E&P) operations contain chemicals that are considered as toxic air pollutants for the purpose of toxic release inventories (TRI) reports or hazardous air pollutants (HAP) under Title III of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. A study was conducted to estimate HAP emissions from E&P waste management operations on a per-event basis. The ...

  • `Facing the New Emission Standards for Hydrochloric Acid Pickling,` presented at the SUR

    Introduction Under the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA), U.S. EPA is required to regulate sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). Primarily, HAP emissions are regulated through National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs), which are codified under Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 63. NESHAPs address HAP emissions from a particular process, ...
