2012 Feb. 3: EPA’s Public Webinar concerning New Residential Wood Heaters (Feb. 9 at 2 p.m. ET)

NSPS stands for New Source Performance Standards (NSPS). New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) are federal standards promulgated for major and minor sources on a category-category basis. NSPS are national emission standards that are progressively tightened over time to achieve a steady rate of air quality improvement without unreasonable economic disruption). Best, Nancy Alderman


Subject: EPA Public Webinar — NSPS for New Residential Wood Heaters
 
Public Webinar on U.S. EPA’s DRAFT Proposed Rule –
NSPS for New Residential Wood Heaters February 9 at 2:00 PM ET
 
The U.S. EPA invites the public to participate in a webinar on EPA’s
upcoming proposed New Source Performance Standards for New Residential
Wood Heaters, New Residential Hydronic Heaters and Forced-Air Furnaces,
and New Residential Masonry Heaters.
 
The webinar will take place on Thursday, February 9, 2012, from
2:00-3:15 p.m. Eastern Time.

EPA will provide information about the current drafts of the upcoming
proposals. The proposals, which are still in development, include:
– tighter emission limits for new residential wood stoves to reflect
today’s Best Systems of Emission Reduction;
– new emission limits for new residential hydronic heaters and
forced air furnaces and new residential masonry heaters to reflect
today’s Best Systems of Emission Reduction;
– elimination of the current exemption for pellet stoves and single
burn rate stoves;
– test method revisions as appropriate; and
– compliance assurance process improvements.
 
EPA does not expect to include any requirements for heaters that are
solely fired by gas or oil. EPA also does not expect to include any
requirements for wood-fired fireplaces. Please note: these proposals
apply only to new appliances.
