Macrotek Providing Solutions for Boiler MACT Compliance
On January 31, 2013, U.S. EPA published its final adjustments to its rules regulating emissions of hazardous air pollutants from industrial, commercial and institutional boilers and process heaters at major and non-major (known as “area”) source facilities of air toxics. It is estimated that 2,300 boilers—mostly large, coal-fired boilers located at industrial plants—will be required to meet numerical emission limits.
Macrotek Inc., a leading provider of air pollution control equipment, has been identified as a principle solution for industrial facilities affected by this ruling. Macrotek specializes in supplying advanced, customized technologies in the size range of boilers targeted by the MACT standards. The company has been working with the American industrial sector to evaluate existing systems, establish practical and economic resolutions, such as retrofits, and offer site-specific removal of particulate and other contaminants.
New and existing boilers at major source facilities will have until three years after publication in the Federal Register of the final rules to comply. This sets the existing source compliance date as January 31, 2016. Existing boilers at area source facilities must comply with the final rules beginning March 2014.
