EPA announced that the promulgation of National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for industrial, commercial, and institutional boilers and process heaters is postponed to January 16, 2011. The regulation, commonly referred to as Boiler MACT, will affect approx. 13,500 boilers at various facilities deemed to be major sources of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs).
The rule is intended to ensure application of the maximum-achievable control technology (MACT) to limit boiler emissions. This will affect emission testing requirements and boiler operating limits.
