Multi-firing units



74 § if in a large combustion plant is used more than

a fuel and this means that for any of

pollutants sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and

dust applies various constraint values according to §§ 44-73,

Instead, it weighted constraint value as follows

of 75 – 79 sections apply to pollution.



§ 75 Of each pollutant for the purposes of §§ 44-73

covered by various restriction values from a

' multi-fuel firing shall be determined in a bränslevägt

the restriction value by



1. for each fuel used in the incineration plant

identify which limit value according to §§ 44-73

apply for the fixed effect (the fuel input value),



2. for each fuel used in the incineration plant

multiply the input value of the fuel with a number that indicates the

through the fuel input power (output value) and

get out the fuel's share value,



3. for each fuel used in the incineration plant

divide the fuel's share value with the sum of all the

environmental impact values and thus obtain the fuel

Balancing value, and



4. Add all use fuels the balancing values and

get out the weighted constraint value (the number of

milligram per cubic meter of normal dry gas) for the

emissions of the pollution from flerbränsleanläggningen.



76 section If a ' multi-fuel firing is a 2013-facility and

one of the fuels is a raffineringsrestbränsle used

separately or jointly with other fuels, it should

each pollutant is identified which of the fuels

that is the dominant fuel. The controlling fuel is

the fuel that gives maximum limit value in accordance with paragraphs 44 to 49

(pollutant sulphur dioxide), §§ 55-62 (pollution

nitrogen oxides, and carbon monoxide) and sections 68 to 70 (pollution

dust). If there are two or more fuels for the same

pollution gives the maximum limit value, the fuel

with the largest input power is considered to be the

controlling fuel for the pollution.



When the dominant fuel for contamination is

identified, a bränslevägt limit value for


the contamination be determined under section 77 or 78 instead of the

as stated in paragraph 75.



section 77 Of the controlling fuel according to § 76 50

percent or more of total thermal input fuels,

to apply the same limit value as bränslevägt

the limit value applicable to that type of fuel that the

controlling fuel constitutes.



section 78 Of the controlling fuel according to § 76 represents less

than 50% of the total thermal input fuels,

the weighted constraint value determined by



1. for each fuel used in the incineration plant

identify which throttle rate under 44-49,

55-62 and 68 to 70 sections (the fuel input value),



2. multiply the controlling fuel throttle value

with number 2 and thus obtain the controlling fuel

Dual input value,



3. reduce the controlling dual fuel input value with

the number that corresponds to the minimum of the used fuel

the input values and thus obtain the controlling

the fuel-adjusted the input value,



4. multiply the controlling fuel adjusted

the input value is a number that corresponds to the controlling

the fuel's thermal input (output value) and get

until the controlling share of the fuel value,



5. for any other fuel used in

incinerator multiply fuel input value

with a number that corresponds to the fuel's thermal input

(output value) and in this way obtain the fuel's share value,



6. for each fuel used in the incineration plant

divide the fuel effect with the sum of all the

environmental tillförselvärden and thus obtain the fuel

Balancing value, and



7. Add all use fuels the balancing values and

get out the weighted constraint value (the number of

milligram per cubic meter of normal dry gas) for the

emissions of the pollution from flerbränsleanläggningen.



79 section For emissions of sulphur dioxide from a

' multi-fuel firing is a 2013-holding in a

refinery and one of the fuels is a

raffineringsrestbränsle used separately or together

with other fuels should be, rather than what is said in the 74-78

§ §, which limit value that it may not be placed



1. more than 1,000 milligrams of sulphur dioxide per cubic metre of normal

dry gas, if the plant is a 2002-establishment, or



2. more than 600 milligrams of sulphur dioxide per cubic metre of normal

dry gas in other cases.

emission requirements are to be applied as regards the fixed effect.



81 section About a 2013-plant is changed in a way that may cause

consequences for the environment and in a manner that affects such a

part of the incineration plant which has an installed

rated thermal input larger than 50 megawatts, will be the

incineration plants shall be applied to the revised

combustion plant part. The emission requirements are to be applied

as far as fixed effect.
