DOE Boiler MACT Technical Assistance

On December 20, 2012, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency finalized the Clean Air Act pollution standards, National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Major Sources: Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Boilers and Process Heaters  (known as ICI Boiler MACT). This standard applies to large boilers in a wide range of facilities and institutions. DOE will offer technical assistance  to ensure that major sources burning coal or oil have information on cost-effective clean energy strategies for compliance, such as natural gas combined heat and power (CHP), and to promote cleaner, more efficient boilers to cut harmful pollution and reduce operational costs. This technical assistance effort is in accordance with the August 2012 Executive Order  on accelerating investment in industrial energy efficiency, including CHP. The Midwest Clean Energy Application Center is offering this supplemental Technical Assistance for affected facilities in the Intermountain region.  Contact John Cuttica  at the Midwest Clean Energy Application Center for more information.
