Suite of Comprehensive Applications and Services for MSAPR

BLIERs Solution

The Multi-Sector Air Pollutants Regulations (MSAPR), formerly called the Base Level Industrial Emission Requirements (BLIERs), were implemented by Environment Canada on Wednesday, June 29, 2016. These new NOx emission regulations will focus on:

  • Natural Gas Engines - Primarily utilized for compression, electrical power generation and pumping within industrial facilities
  • Boilers and Heaters - Steam generation for various purposes in industrial process applications
  • Grey Cement Manufacturing Facilities

Spartan Controls, along with our major principals (FW Murphy, ECOM, and REM Technology), have developed a suite of solutions, product and services aimed at ensuring Customers will be able to meet these upcoming regulation changes for their natural gas engines.

MSAPR Solutions

  • Full line of products and services enabling natural gas engines to meet new MSAPR NOx requirements
  • Fleet analysis, business plan, and implementation services to meet compliance dates
  • Offering the only patented NOx reduction solutions with proven ROI

MSAPR Regulations

The new NOx regulations (MSAPR) for stationary reciprocating natural gas engines in Canada will apply to all new 75kW (100hp) and above engines, and all existing 250kW (335hp) and above engines. Owner/operators of these engines will have two approaches available to meet compliance: a per-unit approach, and an average approach.

Regulation Planning

It is important for owner/operators of these engines to complete a detailed fleet analysis, business plan, and implementation plan promptly to determine the scope of their compliance responsibilities. Spartan Controls has the expertise, along with recommended third 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 company's and regulatory expectations.

Environment Canada

Environment Canada has done extensive analysis and held numerous stakeholder meetings with engine owner/operators, engine OEMs and technology vendors and has recommended two approaches to reduce NOx for rich-burn natural gas engines:

  • Rich to Lean Conversion – Spartan has the only patented rich to lean technology (REMVue®) 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 – Spartan offers the FW Murphy Compliance air/fuel ratio controller

With over 50 years of experience delivering rugged, reliable solutions for the Western Canadian industrial market, our emission solutions are designed and tested to meet your demanding operating conditions.
