Principal Consultant Glenn England will speak at a session on new PM2.5 emission factors for natural gas-fired boilers, gas turbines and reciprocating engines at the Energy, Utility & Environment Conference (EUEC) 2017 in San Diego, California, February 8-10. EUEC facilitates information exchange and fosters cooperation among industry, government and regulatory stakeholders concerned with energy security and environmental protection.
Glenn will discuss the recent application of emerging stationary source dilution sampling methods that achieve more accurate PM2.5 mass and species emission measurements when developing new PM2.5 emission factors. The new factors are applicable to natural gas-fired turbines and reciprocating engines, such as those used at natural gas transmission pipeline compressor stations. Recent results are also used to update emission factors for boilers and process heaters. The new emission factors demonstrate that PM2.5 emissions from gas-fired sources have much lower estimated impacts on ambient air quality, which can be a significant advantage during NSR permitting.
