Combustion Improvements for Existing Assets
The industrial biomass fired boiler market has a number of mature installations from the 1970’s and 1980’s. New or impending environmental legislation and rules are forcing these 30 and 40 year old facilities to evaluate their operations for both efficiency and environmental compliance. In the United States, a number of new regulations have been developed for biomass thermal energy units, most notably the Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) standards which will become effective in January 2016. The MACT standards have provisions for reductions of particulate matter, carbon monoxide, mercury and hydrochloric acids for both new and existing sources. European countries such as France are publishing guidance and new requirements for existing biomass energy sources as well. CLICK HERE to read the whole article.
