Mandatory emissions levels are obviously a critical consideration when operating a boiler room today. Since the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, stiff regulations have been in place to contain pollutant emissions and encourage air cleanup. Understanding your federal and state obligations can help ensure you make the correct decisions when it comes to maintaining and improving your boiler room’s efficiency.

With breakthrough technology, Cleaver-Brooks has attained extremely low emissions levels such as NOx levels below 5 ppm, and CO levels below 1 ppm while maintaining 30 ppm NOx.
On December 20, 2012, EPA finalized changes to Clean Air Act standards for Area Source boiler and Major Source boilers. the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) set forth new emissions and work practice standards for boilers. To learn more, visit the EPA compliance section of our website.
