Join the June 2019 PowerHour Emissions and Air Permitting Requirements for Standby Generator Sets presented by Technical Marketing Advisor, Michael Sanford by registering here.
Air permitting for standby generator sets can vary wildly from site to site and when misunderstood can have a major impact on project success. Although EPA regulations have stabilized and are thought to be well understood, ever-increasing local requirements are changing the criticality of air permitting for engine-driven generator sets. This course will provide a brief overview of regulated emissions constituents and their formation in order to provide a foundational understanding of engine emissions. Next, the EPA's New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) will be reviewed as it relates to both compression ignited (diesel) and spark ignited (natural gas or propane) engine equipped generator sets. Participants will gain an awareness of common pitfalls related to emissions permitting and will be introduced to various strategies employed to meet local emissions regulations.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Recognize commonly regulated exhaust emissions constituents.
- Describe EPA emissions requirements for diesel and gaseous standby generator sets.
- Identify common requirements for permitting engine-driven generator sets
