EMISSION REQUIREMENTS FOR STANDBY GENERATORS
For most applications that utilise diesel generator sets, it does not have to comply with any emission requirements when:
- Unlimited operation for emergency power supply on standby mode
- Non-emergency operation of up to 100 hours per year
- Major Power Source – The generator complies with emissions regulations. All major engine manufacturers publish individual emission charts. These charts
- reflect the EPA tier the engine is certified for.
What are Emissions?
- The exhaust of a diesel engine contains by products from combustion. For environmental safety, the below emissions are monitored:
- Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) – Occurs naturally as a result of bacterial process, biological growth, decay, lightning, forest fires and burning of fossil fuels. Colorless non-toxic gas (referred to as laughing gas).
- Hydrocarbons (HC) – Organic chemical compounds that consist entirely of carbon and hydrogen. They range from simple molecules such as methane to polymers such as polystyrene.
- Carbon Monoxide (CO) – Colorless, odorless, toxic gas produced from incomplete burning of fossil fuels.
- Particulate Matter (PM) – The sum of all solid and liquid particles suspended in the air.
We have developed low emission diesel generators that can meet Tier 3, Tier 4 Final and EU stage V regulations. They are widely used in those places where it has strict requirements for pollution.
