The U.S. EPA published the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Major Sources: Industrial, Commercial and Institutional Boilers and Process Heaters; Final Rule Jan. 31 in the Federal Register. This has started the clock for compliance with the rule. Existing structures will have until Jan. 31, 2016 to comply with the rule, while new sources had until Jan. 31, 2013 or the startup date, whichever is later, to comply with the rule.

The Boiler MACT Rule requires owners of industrial, commercial and institutional boilers to comply with the EPA’s standards for air pollutants, including mercury. It will affect 1,700 existing major source facilities with an estimated 14,316 boilers and process heaters. The EPA also estimates an additional 1,844 new boilers and process heaters to be subject to the final rule over the next three years.

On December 20, 2012, the EPA finalized the Boiler MACT, a specific set of adjustments to existing Clean Air Act standards, for boilers and certain solid waste incinerators. These adjustments set standards to cut emissions of hazardous air pollutants, such as mercury, dioxin, and lead, from large boilers in a range of industrial facilities and institutions.

The DOE will offer technical assistance to affected sites currently burning coal or oil, highlighting strategies such as natural gas combined heat and power (CHP), and more efficient boilers, to cut harmful pollution and reduce operational costs. DOE will also provide site-specific technical and cost information to the major source facilities currently burning coal or oil through its regional Clean Energy Application Centers (CEACs).

The CEACs will visit these facilities to discuss strategies for compliance, including CHP, as well as provide information on potential funding and financing opportunities available for CHP, controls, boilers and energy efficiency assessments. Facilities that make use of this technical assistance can potentially develop strategies to comply with the regulations while adding to their bottom line.

Contact Nationwide Boiler today to discuss how we can help you come up with a solution that will cut emissions in your facility. Call: 1-800-227-1966.

Information on financial incentives available at the local, state, utility and federal levels to assist facilities with the costs of investing in CHP, boiler tune-ups, controls and/or energy efficiency assessments is available at:

To kick off next year's tradeshow season, Nationwide Boiler will be at the Sacramento Convention Center on February 5th & 6th for the annual Food Processing Expo, hosted by the California League of Food Processors (CLFP). The show will include exhibits from over 200 valuable industry players, workshops, guest speakers, food product samples and games. This year there will also be a discussion on the impact of California's Cap-and-Trade program on food processors, an event you won't want to miss!

While at the show, be sure to visit Nationwide Boiler at booth # 536 to learn about our extensive line of rental and sale boilers, and how we can provide quality steam solutions for the everyday food processors needs. And don't forget to ask about our CataStak SCR System (available with ammonia-free option), designed to reduce emissions to less than 5 ppm NOx to comply with strict air regulations and meet energy efficiency goals for the new year.

If you are a food processor and would like to attend the show for free, contact Nationwide Boiler for a complimentary visitors pass to the exhibit hall! Email us at info@nationwideboiler.com.
