What is Boiler MACT

Boilers burn fuels, such as natural gas, coal, biomass and oil, to produce heat, which is then either used directly in industrial processes or used to produce steam, which drives turbines to produce electricity.

In the United States the EPA passed on December 23, 2012 the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Major Sources from Industrial, Commercial and Institutional Boilers and Process Heaters, commonly refereed to as Boiler MACT. The regulation imposes standards and emission limits for more than 200,000 boilers used in manufacturing, processing, mining, refining and other industries, as well as commercial boilers used in malls, apartments, restaurants and hotels. It does not apply to major commercial electricity generators, which are subject to different rules.

If you are operating a Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) impacted boiler, our gas turbines may be a good fit for Combined Heat and Power (CHP) 
More Information on MACT can be found on the EPA web site at http://www.epa.gov/ttn/atw/boiler/boilerpg.html#TECH.  And the Department of Energy's EERE web site at http://www1.eere.energy.gov/manufacturing/distributedenergy/boilermact.html
