Abstract

In this study, the authors have attempted to analyze and emphasize on the impact of the “Proposed Environmental Emission Standard for Stationary Combustion Systems on real industrial applications by collecting data from industry experts who have been directly involved in the implementation of those emission standard with respect to the regulations and limitations that have been defined, industrial impacts, instrumentations, pre-facility requirement and external interferences. This study, however, does not discuss policy implementation practices of different organizations when monitoring the emission levels of stationary combustion systems.

 The strong recommendations given in this study are based on performance analysis and comparisons of 225 industrial stationary combustion systems that included categories such as thermal power plants, industrial boilers, thermic fluid heaters, incinerators, cupolas/ blast furnaces/coke ovens/basic oxygen furnaces/electric (induction & arc) furnaces and standby generators mentioned in the proposed environmental emission standard. In addition to plant performance, feedback received from different sectors and data related to emission standards implemented and practiced in 13 Asian countries were also considered.

 

The recommendations given in this study emphasize on the special areas that need to be reconsidered before implementing this proposed stationary source emission standard. The areas highlighted are bio mass combustion systems, standby diesel generators, incinerators and various categories of furnaces, kilns, ovens etc.

 

The outcomes of this study will therefore be important and useful when implementing the proposed emission standard in terms of plant categorization, capacity ranges, reference oxygen levels, normalizing conditions, emission limits, system behaviors, standard test methods, requirement of precise and accurate instrumentation etc. Finally, this study expects to provide a reliable, convenient and effective stationary sources emission standard for the benefit of regulatory bodies, industries, instruments & equipment suppliers, monitoring organizations etc.
