Cross State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) Compliance
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has finalized the Cross State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR), requiring 27 states to significantly improve air quality by reducing power plant emissions of nitrogen oxide (NOx) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) that contribute to ozone and/or fine particle pollution in other states. These pollutants react in the atmosphere to form fine particles and ground-level ozone and are transported long distances, making it difficult for other states to achieve NAAQS.
For the 27 states regulated by CSAPR, significant reductions in sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions are required. Emission reductions will be required starting in January 2012 for SO2 and annual NOX reductions, and in May 2012 for ozone season NOX reductions. By 2014, CSAPR and other states and EPA regulations will reduce power plant SO2 emissions by 73% and NOX emissions by 54% from 2005 levels.
The Nalco Mobotec team of experts can help you answer questions like:
- Will NOx and SO2 reductions solutions impact other emissions?
- Is Fuel Switching an option and if so what are the issues involved?
- Is there a low-cost short term solution?
- What is the most economical approach to meeting emission limits for NOx (LNB, OFA, SNCR, or SCR)?
- What is the maximum SO2 reduction I can achieve with sorbent injection?
- How much sorbent will I need to meet my SO2 emissions?
- What impacts will sorbent injection have on other equipment?
Nalco Mobotec is a single-source provider for CSAPR compliance:
- NOx: Rotating Opposed Fire Air (ROFA) system and Combustion Tuning Programs
- NOx: Rotamix Advanced SNCR system
- Hybrid ROFA: Lower NOx, CO, and LOI than a standard OFA system
- SO2: Nalco Mobotec Air-Boosted Dry Sorbent Injection or Furnace Dry Sorbent Injection
- Slagging/Fouling: Fireside Chemical Treatment
