Alternative emissions standard
Credit Interpretation Request Number
The Credit Interpretation Request (CIR) to deem the German 'TA Luft 2002' emission standard equivalent to the United States EPA Tier 3 emissions standard is granted conditionally on the project's ability to demonstrate the generator(s) compliance with all applicable pollutant (i.e. CO, PM and NOx) emission limits within the TA Luft 2002 emissions standard for the generator size, irrespective of whether the engine is to be used as an emergency/back-up unit or for the purposes of minimising peak electrical infrastructure load for less than 300 hours per year.
