March Tradeshows - WRBA & WTUI

Tradeshow season is in full force, and Nationwide Boiler will be on the road again in March for two more tradeshow conferences.

To start us off, Larry Day will be visiting San Diego, CA for the Western Turbine Users Conference (WTUI) at the San Diego Convention Center, March 10 – 13. If you plan on attending the show, be sure to stop by our booth to visit with Mr. Day and learn how Nationwide Boiler can provide your company with proven and reliable solutions with our CataStak™ SCR System for gas fired turbines, reducing emissions to as low as 2 ½ ppm NOx.

That same week, Nationwide’s Sales Engineer Tim McBride will travel to Portland, OR for the Western Regional Boiler Association Conference (WRBA), March 12 – 14. The show will take place at the Red Lion Hotel on the River in Jantzen Beach, OR and will include a number of presentations with specific topics related to boiler operations. To see a preliminary agenda for the conference or register for the show, visit the WRBA website. And don’t forget to visit Mr. McBride to obtain information about our complete line of rental boilers, new and used boiler systems for sale, emergency contingency planning and low NOx solutions.

Boiler MACT Update

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.

Energy Department to Provide Technical Assistance to Facilities Impacted by EPA Boiler Rule

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.

For more information on the DOE technical assistance program, see:

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:
