Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Jun2006 Supplement, Vol. 78, p5
The article comments on the omission of hybrid boilers from the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants for Industrial, Commercial and Institutional Boilers and Process Heaters, otherwise known as Industrial Boiler MACT. Information on the confusion caused by such omission to regulators and environmental consultants is presented. The article also offers information on the purpose of the hybrid-boiler designs.
