Multi-sector Air Pollutants Regulations (MSAPR), formally called Base Level Industrial Emission Requirements (BLIERs), are NOx regulations for stationary reciprocating natural gas engines in Canada.
These regulations will apply to all new 75kW (100hp) and above engines and all existing 250kW (335hp) and above engines. There is 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. Owner/operators of these engines will have two approaches available to meet compliance, a per unit approach, and an average approach. We have 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.
