Boiler Form TEST

Owners or operators of non-compliant small boilers that are rated between 2 and 10 million BTU/hour may be eligible for the Small Boiler Stipulated Order for Abatement Program for additional time to install or retrofit boilers to meet the applicable Regulation 9, Rule 7, emission limits.

Boiler Stipulated Order of Abatement Program

Owners/operators of a facility with small boiler(s) that has a rated input between 2 and 10 million BTU/hour may be eligible for the Boiler Stipulated Order for Abatement Program that allows the owner/operator time to install or retrofit boilers to meet the applicable Regulation 9, Rule 7, emission limits.

You may be eligible if:

  • The maximum rated input heat of each of your boiler is greater than 2 MM BTU/hr and less than 10 MM BTU/hr;
  • Each of your boiler(s) is fired using only natural gas, propane, or butane;
  • You do not have any equipment, other than a backup diesel generator, that would need an Air District permit to operate; and
  • You have registered each of your boiler(s) with the Air District.

The Air District issues permits for the operation of most types of stationary equipment that emits air pollution, including to owners of small facilities such as apartment and office buildings, schools, and small businesses like gas stations. Examples of such equipment that are common at small facilities include backup diesel generators, boilers with a maximum heat rating of 10 MM BTU/hr and above, and gasoline tanks and pumps. If your facility has any equipment, other than a backup diesel generator, subject to Air District permitting requirements, you are not eligible for the Stipulated Order for Abatement Program.

Please refer to the Air District’s Compliance Advisory [title and link] for additional information. If the advisory does not answer all your questions, please contact the Air District at 415-749-8631.
