Grants for Emission Reductions from Rich-Burn Stationary Compressor Engines Under Senate Bill 2000
This grant program implemented Senate Bill 2000, passed in 2007 by the 80th Texas Legislative Session. The bill directed the TCEQ to develop an incentive grant program for the partial reimbursement of capital costs for installing nonselective catalytic reduction (NSCR) systems to reduce emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from existing stationary gas-fired rich-burn compressor engines. The grant program has ended.
Grants were issued for the installation of NSCR systems to reduce emissions of NOx from existing stationary gas-fired rich-burn compressor engines located in any county in Texas. In order to receive reimbursement, emission reduction systems had to be installed and emission levels verified between May 1, 2007, and March 31, 2008. Applications were accepted through May 1, 2008. Legislation authorizing the grant program expired August 31, 2008.
