Archived: Proposed guidelines: reduction of nitrogen oxide emissions from natural stationary combustion turbines
The development of the Proposed Guidelines for the Reduction of Nitrogen Oxide Emissions (NOx) from Natural Gas-fuelled Stationary Combustion Turbines follows the agreement made by federal, provincial and territorial environment ministers to better protect human health and the environment by endorsing and implementing a new Air Quality Management System (AQMS). The AQMS includes Canadian Ambient Air Quality Standards for fine particulate matter and ground-level ozone, Base Level Industrial Emissions Requirements (BLIERs) and local Air Zone Management by the provincial/territorial jurisdictions.
Environment and Climate Change Canada led a multi-stakeholder BLIERs working group that developed consensus-based NOx emission requirements for new natural gas-fuelled combustion turbines. These requirements form the foundation for the emission limits in the guidelines.
