The EPA mandates that all stationary nonemergency generators meet Tier 4 emissions levels. A new white paper from Kohler explains the differences between systems that are compliant through aftertreatment devices, and those that are factory-certified. It also provides guidance on how organizations like data centers can select the best solution for their specific situation. In addition to factory-certification, third-party options like selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems, particulate filters, and low-NOx engine calibration are covered in the report.
The report also highlights key considerations when selecting the most appropriate emissions solution. The report explores why companies that have multiple standby generators, like data centers, need to consider state and local regulations, Title V limits, and their own goals around green initiatives.
