RICE NESHAP is here! What is this and how does it apply to you?
In 2013, the US EPA ruled on the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants or NESHAP for Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines (RICE). The final ruling is 40 CFR Part 63 Subpart ZZZZ. The ruling affects existing stationary compression ignition and spark ignition engines and seeks to reduce emissions of toxic air pollutants, such as formaldehyde, from several categories of previously unregulated stationary engines. In certain cases, the EPA ruling allows carbon monoxide (CO) to be a surrogate for the hazardous air pollutants. The RICE NESHAP regulations will be fully enforced beginning in 2013. Not all units need to comply with the new RICE NESHAP standards. We have provided some simplified information about the rules. Here are two factors to help guide you. The first is concerning the exhaust and the second is concerning the crank case ventilation.
1. The affected stationary engines must comply with CO emission limits or must be fitted with emission controls, such as diesel oxidation catalysts, to reduce CO emissions by at least 70%. The ruling also requires the use of ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel for stationary non-emergency, non-black start engines greater than 300 hp with a displacement of less than 30 liters per cylinder. The ruling also includes a number of additional provisions, including start up and maintenance requirements. Stationary engines greater than or equal to 300 hp must also be equipped with closed or open crankcase filtration system in order to reduce metallic HAP emissions. The ruling requires initial and continuing compliance that includes monitoring, data logging, and performance tests at specific intervals.
2. The Environmental Protection Agency’s s RICE NESHAP standard for crankcase emissions for most non-emergency, stationary, compression ignition (diesel) reciprocating engines over 300HP are: Owners and Operators of engines operating without a crankcase ventilation system must do one of the following prior to May 2013: (1) Install a closed crankcase ventilation system that prevents crankcase emissions from being emitted to the atmosphere, or (2) install an open crankcase ventilation system that reduces emissions from the crankcase by filtering the exhaust stream to remove oil mist and hazardous particulate emissions.
