Expedited Review List
No. Property Description
B-1 Coal Cleaning or Refining Facilities Used to remove impurities from coal in order to
boost the heat content and to reduce potential air
pollutants.
B-2 Atmospheric or Pressurized and
Bubbling or Circulating Fluidized
Bed Combustion Systems and
Gasification Fluidized Bed
Combustion Combined Cycle
Systems
Combustion systems that reduce pollution through
the use of a fluidized bed that can be atmospheric
and bubbling or circulating; gasification combined
cycle systems; or pressurized and bubbling or
circulating systems.
B-3 Ultra-Supercritical Pulverized Coal
Boilers
Boiler system designed to provide 4500 pounds
per square inch gauge (psig)/1100/1100/1100
double reheat configuration.
B-4 Flue Gas Recirculation Components Ductwork, blowers, and ancillary equipment used
to redirect part of the flue gas back to the
combustion chamber for reduction of nitrogen
oxides (NOx) formation. May include fly ash
collection in coal fired units.
B-5 Syngas Purification Systems and
Gas-Cleanup Units
A system, including all necessary appurtenances,
that: (1) produces synthesis gas from coal,
biomass, petroleum coke, or solid waste and is
then converted to electricity via combined cycle
power generation equipment; and (2) equipment
that removes sulfur, carbon, and other polluting
compounds from synthesis gas streams.
B-6 Enhanced Heat Recovery Systems A heating system used to reduce the temperature
and humidity of the exhaust gas stream and
recover the heat so that it can be returned to the
steam generator so as to increase the quantity of
steam generated per quantity of fuel consumed.
B-7 Exhaust Heat Recovery Boilers Used to recover the heat from boiler to generate
additional steam.
B-8 Heat Recovery Steam Generators A counter-flow heat exchanger consisting of a
series of super-heater, boiler (or evaporator) and
economizer tube sections, arranged from the gas
inlet to the gas outlet to maximize heat recovery
from the gas turbine exhaust gas.
B-9 Heat Transfer Sections for Heat
Recovery Steam Generators
Super-heaters, Evaporators, Re-heaters and
Economizers.
B-10 Enhanced Steam Turbine Systems Enhanced efficiency steam turbines.
B-11 Methanation Coal Gasification process that removes carbon
and produces methane, including the necessary
support systems and appurtenances.
B-12 Coal Combustion or Gasification By-
product and Co-product Handling,
Storage, and Treatment Facilities
Used for handling, storage, or treatment of by-
products or co-products produced (resulting) from
the combustion or gasification of coal such as
boiler and Gasifier slag, bottom ash, flue gas
desulfurization (FGD) material, fly ash, and sulfur.
B-13 Biomass Cofiring Storage,
Distribution, and Firing Systems
Installed to reduce pollution by using biomass as a
supplementary fuel.
B-14 Coal Cleaning or Drying Processes,
such as coal drying/moisture
reduction, air jigging, precombustion
decarbonization, and coal flow
balancing technology
Used to produce a cleaner burning coal (such as
coal drying, moisture reduction, air jigging,
precombustion decarbonization, or coal flow
balancing technology).
B-15a Oxy-Fuel Combustion Technology Installed to allow the feeding of oxygen, rather
than air, and a proportion of recycled flue gases to
the boiler.
B-15b Amine or Chilled Ammonia
Scrubbing
Installed to provide post combustion capture of
pollutants (including carbon dioxide upon the
effective date of a final rule adopted by the United
States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
regulating carbon dioxide as a pollutant).
B-15c Catalyst based Systems Installed to allow the use of catalysts to reduce
emissions.
B-15d Enhanced Scrubbing Technology Installed to enhance scrubber performance,
including equipment that promotes the oxidation of
elemental mercury in the flue gas prior to entering
the scrubber.
B-15e Modified Combustion Technologies Systems such as chemical looping and biomass
co-firing that are designed to enhance pollutant
removal.
B-15f Cryogenic Technology Cryogenic cooling systems used to reduce
pollution (including carbon dioxide upon the
effective date of a final rule adopted by the EPA
regulating carbon dioxide as a pollutant).
B-16 Carbon Dioxide Capture and
Geological Sequestration
Equipment
Used, constructed, acquired, or installed wholly or
partly to capture carbon dioxide from an
anthropogenic source in this state that is then
geologically sequestered in this state. (This item is
only in effect upon the effective date of an EPA
final rule regulating carbon dioxide as a pollutant.)
B-17 Fuel Cells Used to generate electricity using hydrogen
derived from coal, biomass, petroleum coke, or
solid waste.
B-18 Regulated Air Pollutant Control
Equipment
Any other facility, device, or method designed to
prevent, capture, abate, or monitor nitrogen
oxides, volatile organic compounds, particulate
matter, mercury, carbon monoxide, or any criteria
pollutant.
