Eric Swisher of All4 Inc. explains "Compliance with the Low Emitting Electrical Generating Units(EGU) (LEE) Compliance Options". This presentation goes into both emission testing and monitoring for LEEs. Information included within this presentation explains: reduced emission testing, minimal monitoring requirements, quarterly emission testing, and monitoring (Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems (CEMS) and Parametric monitoring).

  • Fuel switching to a “cleaner fuel” to qualify as a LEE most likely will require permitting.§63.9991(c) - Alternate SO2 limit in Tables 1 and 2 to this subpart are an option if your EGU:Has a system using wet or dry flue gas desulfurization technology (this includes limestone injection into a fluidized bed combustion unit) and SO2 continuous emissions monitoring system (CEMS) installed on the unit; and(2) At all times, you operate the wet or dry flue gas desulfurization technology installed on the unit consistent with § 63.10000(b).Dry flue gas desulfurization technology, or dry FGD, or spray dryer absorber (SDA), or spray dryer, or dry scrubber means an add-on air pollution control system located downstream of the steam generating unit that injects a dry alkaline sorbent (dry sorbent injection) or sprays an alkaline sorbent slurry (spray dryer) to react with and neutralize acid gases such as SO2 and HCl in the exhaust stream forming a dry powder material. Alkaline sorbent injection systems in fluidized bed combustors (FBC) or circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boilers are included in this definition.
  • Start Testing Early - §63.10005(b) – Test results from up to 12-months prior to the compliance date (April 16, 2015) can be used.
  • §63.10005(h)(2)(i) - When conducting emissions testing to demonstrate LEE status, you must increase the minimum sample volume specified in Table 1 or 2 nominally by a factor of two.PM = 2 dscm for LEE (i.e., 3 x 90-min test runs)1. The unit must be operated at maximum normal operating load conditions during each periodic performance test [40 CFR §63.10007(a)(2)].Maximum normal operating load will be generally between 90 and 110% of design capacity but should be representative of site specific normal operations during each test run [40 CFR §63.10007(a)(2)].PM performance testing must be conducted every calendar quarter which the unit operates greater than 168 hours. PM emission testing must be conducted at least once every calendar year regardless of the unit operational status [40 CFR §63.10021(d)(1)]. Performance testing required at least quarterly must be completed within 80 to 100 calendar days after the previous performance test [40 CFR §63.10006(f)
