  • Tuning Your Boiler for EPA Boiler MACT Compliance

    The EPA’s Boiler MACT regulations are heating up. Boiler MACT is an EPA rule to limit hazardous air pollutants (HAP) from commercial and industrial boilers and process heaters. Originally proposed in 2011 as a mandate driven by the Clean Air Act,  the rules are Area Source Boiler MACT 40 CFR 63, subpart JJJJJJ for smaller boilers (stores, hotels, apartments, ...

  • Saving waste in the boiler house

    Burner technology has improved greatly in recent years. Older Burners had a series of cams and levers that were calibrated to provide specific amounts of air for a particular rate of firing. Being mechanical items, these wore and sometimes required calibration. They, therefore, had to be regularly serviced and calibrated. Generally, new burners use frequency controlled motors and cams to open air ...

  • Attention to the use of steam boilers in the industry

    In the industry, if people need to use high-temperature steam , then the steam boiler will be used; water can be heated to a quite high temperature, and generates high-temperature steam . Steam boilers and other hot water boiler are not the same , if people want to use the steam boiler, the boiler must be certified , or else once operated wrongly , then the consequences are very terrible.  ...

  • How to Get the Most Out of Your Boiler MACT Energy Assessment

    Congratulations!  You’ve made it through the first year of planning for compliance with the Major and Area Source Boiler MACT rules.  That means there are two years left for major sources to come into compliance by January 31, 2016 (or January 31, 2017 for those who requested and received a one-year extension), and just ...

  • New Regulations for Biomass and Other Alternatative Fuels

    EPA completed new rules that changed the way they look at "nontraditional" fuels. Using these alternative fuels to generate energy makes a facility subject to emission limits and rules regulation boilers. In December U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) completed new rules that changed the way they look at'nontraditional" fuels. Materials that can meet the newly revised standards are ...

  • Economics of tiny thermal power plants

    Thermal power plants is the main source of energy and electricity in India and almost all countries of the world. Most of the giant thermal power plants have capacity of 500MW to 1000 MW. Investment in such giant thermal power plants is Rs 100 million per MW including transmission lines and distribution lines. ( 60 rupees = 1 US$, MW=1000KW). So 1000MW thermal power plant costs Rs 100 million/MW ...

  • Energy efficiency in U.S. manufacturing: the case of Midwest pulp and paper mills

    Rising international energy and labor costs are combining with historically low natural gas prices and improving productivity in the U.S. to create an intermittent resurgence of American manufacturing. In a 2012 survey of company decision makers, the Boston Consulting Group found that 37 percent of manufacturers with sales greater than $1 billion were planning to bring back production to the ...

  • Case study - Keeping ethanol production green

    OVERVIEW Originally published in Pollution Engineering Magazine. In an effort to reduce the world’s dependence on fossil fuels, there has been a major push towards alternatives. Ethanol has been at the forefront of this movement because it reduces greenhouse gas emissions from automobiles and its production has a positive net energy balance. The homegrown fuel also ...

  • Tech Note: Flare Gas Measurement Innovation; Retain Flow Metering Accuracy Even if Gas Composition Changes

    It’s a fact oil wells almost always produce natural gas along with the petroleum. Nine times out of ten, the excess gas (typically hydrocarbons) is flared off or simply vented as-is during upset conditions in the process. The environmental impacts of “flaring” this excess gas into our atmosphere has resulted in government regulations like 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart OOOO (also ...

  • What`s New? Biogas Power

    Technologies that connect the biogas line to the power line include cooling and clean up components, microturbines and reciprocating gas engines and control systems. TOP BILLING on the biogas to electricity stage typically goes to the microturbines and reciprocating gas engines. But in the theater of renewable energy from organics recycling, the show can’t go on without the supporting cast of gas ...
