BLIERs Compliance

Base Level Industrial Emission Requirements (BLIERS) are NOx regulations for stationary reciprocating natural gas engines in Canada and will apply to all new 75kW (100hp) and above engines and all existing 250kW (335hp) and above engines. The regulation proposes an 11 year time frame for compliance, mandating 50% of the engine fleet meet NOx targets within 6 years, and 100% of the fleet meeting NOx targets in 11 years. Owners/operators of these engines will have two approaches to meet compliance: a Per-Unit approach, and an Average approach. It is important for owners/operators of these engines to complete a detailed fleet analysis, business plan and implementation plan promptly to determine the scope of their compliance responsibilities.

PIC has the expertise, along with recommended 3rd party qualified consultants, to assist with the detailed analysis and implementation planning. An early understanding of these details will ensure compliance by the required dates. Knowing if you have 20 or 200 engines to retrofit in the allotted time will be key to meeting your companies and regulatory expectations. 

PIC has the only patented rich to lean technology, REMVue® AFR, that enables substantial NOx reductions, fuel savings and reliability improvements. Optional ECO Plug technology extends NOx reduction and fuel savings for new and existing REMVue® AFR systems Non-Selective Catalyst Reduction (NSCR) with Stoichiometric air/fuel ratio control. PIC offers the Murphy Compliance air/fuel ratio controller and EmeraChem catalysts – both best in class.

The REMVue® AFR 500 is an advanced single system engine/compressor control and monitoring system capable of air-fuel control and optimization, on-line diagnostics and safety shutdown control. It can be configured as a stand-alone system or in conjunction with other hardware/software systems.
Compliance Controls offers an advanced, cost-effective, flexible, easy-to-install and easy-to-use Air Fuel Ratio Control System for Rich Burn and Lean Burn engines. The MEC-R controls rich-burn, natural gas-fueled engines, maximizing the efficiency of a three-way catalyst by maintaining the proper air-fuel ratio over varying engine loads, speeds, fuel quality, ambient temperatures and barometric pressures.
