Workman, G., R. Adams, AND G. Shareef. CRITERIA POLLUTANT EMISSIONS FROM INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES IN THE NATURAL GAS INDUSTRY VOLUME 1. TECHNICAL REPORT. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/600/R-96/020a (NTIS 96-168265), 1996.

Impact/Purpose:

information

Description:

The report summarizes emission factors for criteria pollutants (NOx, CO, CH4, C2H6, THC, NMHC, and NMEHC) from stationary internal combustion engines and gas turbines used in the natural gas industry. The emission factors were calculated from test results from five test campaigns conducted as part of the Gas Research Institute's air toxics study, three of which were cofunded by the EPA. Test results for individual engines tested are presented, along with full load engine family-specific emissions factors, and the calculated emission factors are evaluated relative to the emission factors published in EPA report AP-42. Units tested included eleven 2-stroke engines and five 4-stroke engines, with and without controls, and two gas turbines.
