Are you ready for RICE NESHAP?
RICE NESHAP is here. The U.S. EPA has recently finalized the amendments to the National Emission Standards for RICE NESHAP. RICE NESHAP is the acronym for the US EPA rule for “Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants.”
Though newer revisions reduced the number of engines impacted by the regulations, over 330,000 spark-ignited stationary engines will be impacted directly. Over 900,000 stationary diesel engines will be subject to the new regulations in total. Only a small percentage of these type engines will be impacted directly according most experts.
The RICE NESHAP rule requires implementation of new maintenance and reporting practices for existing stationary engines. These new EPA rules specify how emission standards will be applied to emergency engines that can be used to prevent electrical outages. The EPA numerical emissions limits are being replaced with requirements to install catalytic controls, conduct an initial test and an annual performance check. Maintenance requirements are set to ensure engines and emissions controls are working properly to minimize HAP emissions. Such practices include typical preventative maintenance procedures, such as changing the oil and filter, inspection of sparkplugs, hoses, belts, air filters, etc.
Reading through the regulations and requirements can be a daunting task. Wouldn’t it be nice to simply pick up the phone and let us guide you and perform all the work required? We have designed a RICE NESHAP compliance program to meet the new standards. We can provide this service to all major brands of industrial generators.
