This Regulation establishes emission standards for particulates and gases, emission opacity standards, standards of air quality and control measures to prevent, eliminate or reduce the emission of contaminants into the atmosphere.
For oil and coal, sulfur content limits are set at: 1.5% (w / w) by weight for coal 1.5% (w / w) by weight for coke 1.5% (w / w) by weight per pitch
However, limits do not apply if a portion of the sulfur that would otherwise be emitted in the form of sulfur dioxide in the flue gas is recovered and combined with raw material or product coming into contact with these gases, or a portion of the sulfur that would otherwise be emitted in the form of sulfur dioxide in the flue gas is collected and treated by a scrubber.
