In April 2011 the US EPA enacted regulations for incinerators and gasifiers, and a five year timeframe was allowed for meeting the new provisions. To understand what is required for conformance, municipal owners are working with their consultants to study the implications of the regulations. Many utilities need to catalog their current emission levels, and this can require testing. Managers can then use this data to determine whether they need to upgrade existing equipment, install completely new systems, or even to consider a non-bioenergy solution.

An additional factor has been the public mandate for green energy utilization. The good news is that, with super-autogenous, and multi fuel usage, even medium sized facilities can now generate electricity, or recycle the energy for building heating. Energy recovery has been a component of biosolids incineration systems for many years, and highly efficient technologies are well proven.

This webcast will provide information on the MACT technologies that are available for meeting the emissions regulations, and also for energy recovery. The speakers are technical leaders in their field, and several of them supported the various WEF committees and task forces during the formulation stage of the regulations. They provided valuable performance data to both WEF and NACWA indicating what was technically achievable.

Several projects have already been designed in conformance with the requirements of the new regulations, and the selected technologies will be described in the webcast.

 

This webcast is sponsored by the WEF Residuals & Biosolids Committee with the support of Alpine Technology, Alstom Thermal Power, Carbon Process & Plant Engineering (CPPE), The Elliott Company, and EnviroCare International.
