We are hosting four free webinars on the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) and New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) covering stationary reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICE), and revisions signed on January 14, 2013. Under the RICE NESHAP, facilities with stationary emergency engines need to track their use to avoid exceeding annual hourly limits on non-emergency use. Some non-emergency stationary engines are subject to emission limits and must submit an initial notification, due in August 2010 for compression ignition engines and February 2011 for spark ignition engines. For more information go to http://www.epa.gov/ttn/atw/rice/ricepg.html or http://epa.gov/region1/rice.
