The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is investigating Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines (RICE) to characterize engine emissions and catalyst control efficiencies of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs). This document describes the results of emissions testing conducted on a Cooper-Bessemer GMV-4-TF natural-gas-fired 2-stroke, lean-burn (2SlB) engine. Early in 1998, several industry and EPA representatives agreed that the Cooper-Bessemer GMV-4-TF engine, at the Colorado State University's Engine and Energy conservation laboratory (CSU EECL) is adequately representative of existing and new natural-gas-fired 2SLB engines. The group agreed that a matrix of test results from testing conducted at the EECL could be used to develop Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MAVT) standards for RICE. The group further agreed that an oxidation catalyst installed on the Cooper-Bessemer GMV-4-TF could be used to determine the effectiveness of oxidation catalysts for these engines, and that the EPA could use the results from testing at the 2SLB matrix conditions at CSU as the basis for developing the MAVT standard for natural-gas-fired 2SLB engines. Emissions testing was conducted to measure pollutant concentrations in the exhaust gas both up- and downstream of an oxidation catalyst. Miratech Corporation manufactured the catalyst and CSU personnel installed it on the engine. Several sampling and analysis methodlogies were used to measure HAP emissions before and after the oxidation catalyst.
