GCS is a provider of control equipment for the affected units, such as DCL's Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC), Silencers, Diesel Particulate Filters. GCS has also designed and developed the required Continuous Parameter Monitoring Systems (CPMS) Kit necessary to refit existing engines to meet emission requirements. PowerSecure provides products and services in the areas of Energy Efficiency, Interactive Distributed Generation, and Utility Infrastructure. ESS is an air quality consulting firm specializing in project management, emissions sampling and testing for a wide base of industrial, government and municipal clients.
ESS, PowerSecure and GCS have an established history of working together to meet a facility's compliance requirements. Over the last year our three organizations have worked together on over 100 projects for RICE units demonstrating Subpart ZZZZ compliance. Our project management team provides initial consultation and emission measurements;
Several million stationary reciprocating engines are in use throughout the United States. These engines, in general industry use, provide shaft power to drive process equipment, compressors, pumps, standby generator sets and other machinery. The uses are similar in agriculture, with many engines serving the purpose of driving irrigation pumps. Reciprocating engines also find wide application in municipal water supply, wastewater treatment, and in commercial and institutional emergency power and load-managing stations.
The Subpart ZZZZ RICE rule includes requirements to regulate emissions from new and reconstructed RICE units located at major sources and area sources of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAP). A HAP major source is a facility with a potential to emit 10 tons per year of a single HAP, or 25 tons per year of a combination of HAPs. An area source is any source that is not a HAP major source. All RICE units >100 hp (at area sources) and >500 hp (at major sources) have Carbon Monoxide emission testing requirements. Learn more about the Subpart ZZZZ RICE rule here: http://www.essknowsair-
Compliance with the NESHAP Subpart ZZZZ RICE rule must be achieved by May 3, 2013. To learn more about this partnership, your operations, and applicability under these rulings, please visit http://www.ESSKnowsAir.com or call Brian Mellor with ESS directly at 910-799-1055.
