Particulate Emissions Control (baghouse)

Controlling Particulate Emissions

Kannapolis Energy, LLC – Kannapolis, North Carolina

Compliance with lower particulate emission standards in the state of
North Carolina required Kannapolis Energy (subsidiary of Peregrine Energy) to install control equipment on existing boilers. Although electro static precipitators (ESPs) have historically been used in this application, Peregrine Energy’s environmental staff was aware of future maximum achievable control technology (MACT) standards that would require acid gas removal as well as particulate collection. Installation of bag filter technology with provisions for lime injection would provide the basis for future boiler MACT compliance. This forward looking selection of control technology will allow the facility to meet current and  future air emission regulatory requirements with minimal investment and disruption in operations.
