JUNE 2013—RICE/NESHAP COMPLIANCE

Industrial Energy Applications, Inc. announces that it has completed the installation of Diesel Oxidation Catalyst systems (DOCs) on its fleet of standby diesel generators. The catalyst systems will provide for an approximately 90% reduction in carbon monoxide and other pollutants from the diesel exhaust. The installation of these units is in accordance with recently implemented Environmental Protection Agency regulations (RICE/NESHAP).

Beginning in 2012, company engineers and subcontractors worked on installing the DOCs on 49 units, located at 19 different locations. Each DOC required installation of a new silencer/catalyst unit, along with the required continuous monitoring equipment. Environmental performance testing was also performed on each unit in accordance with EPA rules.
