Why this Lecture?
It is quite notable that generator sets are widely used in different corners of India serving variety of applications. Exhaust emissions from Generator Sets are one of the major identified sources of air pollution across all major urban areas.
Draft Notification GSR 138(E) dt 18th February 2022 by Ministry of Environment and Forests coined as CPCB 4+ (Central Pollution Control Board) emission norms, describes the revised emission limits for all types of generator sets upto 800 kWm gross power. The new limits are proposed to be enforced for all new generator set engines from 1st July 2023.
Revised CPCB 4+ exhaust emission limits will emit less PM and lower levels of NOx emissions, significantly reducing the emissions by over 90% specially from middle to high power engines.
The scheduled SAE lecture is intended to discuss the technological options, strategies and approach to meet CPCB 4+ emission limits for all generator sets upto 800 kWm.
