Regulatory Compliance:<br>The Time to Act Is Now

Regulatory Compliance:
The Time to Act Is Now

Central utility plants are facing a variety of challenging regulatory compliance issues. At the forefront for many facilities is the National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Industrial, Commercial and Institutional Boilers and Process Heaters — commonly referred to as the Industrial Boiler MACT Rule — and the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).

The Boiler MACT Rule will require facilities to be in compliance by 2015. As facilities come into compliance for Boiler MACT, they may also have to demonstrate compliance for NAAQS. Each compliance situation is unique. Facilities should plan now to meet the anticipated compliance date. In general, compliance planning (testing and preliminary studies and permitting) can take six to 12 months, and air pollution control retrofits or new boiler installations can take 12 to 30 months.

Burns & McDonnell can help you determine whether your facility will be in compliance and can then evaluate and implement compliance solutions. We can put you in position to move forward with a comprehensive solution that works for you.
