Proposed Cross-State Air Pollution Update Rule - EGU NOx Mitigation Strategy TSD

This Technical Support Document (TSD) discusses costs and emission reduction potential for common electric generating unit (EGU) NOX emission control systems.  Specifically, this TSD explores three topics:

  1. The appropriate representative cost resulting from “widespread” implementation of a particular NOX emission control technology;
  2. The NOX emission rates commonly achievable by “fully operating” emission control equipment; and,
  3. The time required to install and/or restore an emission control system to full operation.

These estimates form the basis for modeling costs and emission reductions within IPM v 5.14 and 5.15.
