AQMD Boiler Standards

AQMD Standards – Boilers

The South Coast Air Quality Management District, or AQMD, is an air pollution control agency in California. They were established by the Clean Air Act, a federal act by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that created air quality standards for all states to achieve for public health. South Coast AQMD’s primary responsibility is to form rules and standards that are designed to reduce air pollution resulting from several areas, including boilers. The main pollutants that are targeted are carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and other volatile organic compounds. Manley’s Boiler technicians will ensure that your boiler systems comply with the clean air standards to avoid costly fees and penalties.
