The following is a series of technical articles on boilers, power generation ,and various process equipment operation, the applicable local regulatory requirements, as well as the recommended control /mitigation measures for meeting the compliance requirements. These articles were published in the Los Angeles Textile News between the years 2000 to 2003 to guide plant engineers and managers in the process equipment air & water quality compliance with the local regulatory agencies, and in upgrade of the existing or selection of new compliant equipment. Additional technical papers on process equipment used in plant operations, associated emissions, and suitable control equipment were also presented by the author at seminars and workshops between 2005 and 2012, which are also included in this text. Although some of the local regulations (such as AQMD rules) may have been revised or updated since the initial publication date, but the specified control or mitigation measures in most cases still remain in effect. However, due to the nature of regulatory business, it is recommended that the reader keeps track of the updates for the specified regulations in this text. The author is the principal engineer at Sierra Engineering Services in Irvine, CA. He has extensive process and regulatory experience in both public and private sectors and holds a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering from the University of Southern California.
