2 1 What’s Up With Cement Plant Permitting? What’s BACT? Presented by A. A. Linero, P.E. Adminstrator New Source Review Section June 27, 2001

3 AWMA Conference, June Overview zKiln Construction is Back zFocus on Preheater/Calciner Process zFormation and Control of Pollutants zWhat’s Going on in Europe zSome BACT and LAER Ranges zLook at a Current Project zWhat Next? Questions?

4 AWMA Conference, June Views are Author’s ! zNot Opinions of Florida DEP zWe do Case-by-Case Reviews zLiterature Search, Not a Technical Paper zAs Seen by a Permitting Engineer zThere are Very Diverse Opinions zGreatly Simplified

Department sets LAER (2007 ??)

37 AWMA Conference, June Final Thoughts z4000 TPY of NO X equates to z50 Gas-fired Combined Cycle Plants = to 12,500 MW zAt 3 million Btu/ton of Clinker z3.6 lb NO X /ton limit equates to z1.2 lb NO X /million Btu heat input zOrder of magnitude > than new coal power plant zTwo orders > greater than gas-fired power plant zSome low hanging fruit to pick here.
