Strategic Evaluation of Options to Comply with NOx RACT Rule.
CCES performed an evaluation of strategic options to enable the Research Center to comply with the current NOx RACT Rule. The facility currently combusts No. 6 fuel oil, whose measured emissions may not comply with the revised rule’s future requirements. Regulatory and economic impacts were analyzed. Proposed strategies included fuel switching, de-rating, and boiler upgrades. The Research Center received several useful options to give them reasonable choices to comply with this rule.
