1 GENERAL EHS GUIDELINES: INTRODUCTION Envirnmental, Health, and Safety General Guidelines Intrductin The Envirnmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) Guidelines are technical reference dcuments with general and industry-specific examples f Gd Internatinal Industry Practice (GIIP) 1. When ne r mre members f the Wrld Bank Grup are invlved in a prject, these EHS Guidelines are applied as required by their respective plicies and standards. These General EHS Guidelines are designed t be used tgether with the relevant Industry Sectr EHS Guidelines which prvide guidance t users n EHS issues in specific industry sectrs. Fr cmplex prjects, use f multiple industry-sectr guidelines may be necessary. A cmplete list f industry-sectr guidelines can be fund at: The EHS Guidelines cntain the perfrmance levels and measures that are generally cnsidered t be achievable in new facilities by existing technlgy at reasnable csts. Applicatin f the EHS Guidelines t existing facilities may invlve the establishment f site-specific targets, with an apprpriate timetable fr achieving them. The applicability f the EHS Guidelines shuld be tailred t the hazards and risks established fr each prject n the basis f the results f an envirnmental assessment 2 in which site-specific variables, such as hst cuntry cntext, assimilative capacity f the envirnment, and ther prject factrs, are taken int accunt. The applicability f specific technical recmmendatins shuld be 1 Defined as the exercise f prfessinal skill, diligence, prudence and fresight that wuld be reasnably expected frm skilled and experienced prfessinals engaged in the same type f undertaking under the same r similar circumstances glbally. The circumstances that skilled and experienced prfessinals may find when evaluating the range f pllutin preventin and cntrl techniques available t a prject may include, but are nt limited t, varying levels f envirnmental degradatin and envirnmental assimilative capacity as well as varying levels f financial and technical feasibility. 2 Fr IFC, such assessment is carried ut cnsistent with Perfrmance Standard 1, and fr the Wrld Bank, with Operatinal Plicy based n the prfessinal pinin f qualified and experienced persns. When hst cuntry regulatins differ frm the levels and measures presented in the EHS Guidelines, prjects are expected t achieve whichever is mre stringent. If less stringent levels r measures than thse prvided in these EHS Guidelines are apprpriate, in view f specific prject circumstances, a full and detailed justificatin fr any prpsed alternatives is needed as part f the site-specific envirnmental assessment. This justificatin shuld demnstrate that the chice fr any alternate perfrmance levels is prtective f human health and the envirnment. The General EHS Guidelines are rganized as fllws: 1.

Invlving EHS prfessinals, wh have the experience, cmpetence, and training necessary t assess and manage EHS impacts and risks, and carry ut specialized envirnmental management functins including the preparatin f prject r activity-specific plans and prcedures that incrprate the technical recmmendatins presented in this dcument that are relevant t the prject. Understanding the likelihd and magnitude f EHS risks, based n: peple r t the envirnmental resurces n which they depend. Priritizing risk management strategies with the bjective f achieving an verall reductin f risk t human health and the envirnment, fcusing n the preventin f irreversible and / r significant impacts. Favring strategies that eliminate the cause f the hazard at its surce, fr example, by selecting less hazardus materials r prcesses that avid the need fr EHS cntrls. When impact avidance is nt feasible, incrprating engineering and management cntrls t reduce r minimize the pssibility and magnitude f undesired cnsequences, fr example, with the applicatin f pllutin cntrls t reduce the levels f emitted cntaminants t wrkers r envirnments. Preparing wrkers and nearby cmmunities t respnd t accidents, including prviding technical and financial resurces t effectively and safely cntrl such events, and restring wrkplace and cmmunity envirnments t a safe and healthy cnditin.

As a general rule, this Guideline suggests 25 percent f the applicable air quality standards t allw 5 Significant surces f pint and fugitive emissins are cnsidered t be general surces which, fr example, can cntribute a net emissins increase f ne r mre f the fllwing pllutants within a given airshed: PM10: 50 tns per year (tpy); NOx: 500 tpy; SO2: 500 tpy; r as established thrugh natinal legislatin; and cmbustin surces with an equivalent heat input f 50 MWth r greater. The significance f emissins f inrganic and rganic pllutants shuld be established n a prject-specific basis taking int accunt txic and ther prperties f the pllutant. 6 United States Envirnmental Prtectin Agency, Preventin f Significant Deteriratin f Air Quality, 40 CFR Ch. 1 Part Other references fr establishing significant emissins include the Eurpean Cmmissin Guidance Dcument fr EPER implementatin. ; and Australian Gvernment Natinal Pllutant Inventry Guide. 7 Wrld Health Organizatin (WHO).

5 Envirnmental, Health, and Safety Guidelines AIR EMISSIONS AND AMBIENT AIR QUALITY included in Annex These appraches include screening mdels fr single surce evaluatins (SCREEN3 r AIRSCREEN), as well as mre cmplex and refined mdels (AERMOD OR ADMS). Mdel selectin is dependent n the cmplexity and gemrphlgy f the prject site (e.g. muntainus terrain, urban r rural area). Prjects Lcated in Degraded Airsheds r Eclgically Sensitive Areas Facilities r prjects lcated within pr quality airsheds 14, and within r next t areas established as eclgically sensitive (e.g. natinal parks), shuld ensure that any increase in pllutin levels is as small as feasible, and amunts t a fractin f the applicable shrt-term and annual average air quality guidelines r standards as established in the prject-specific envirnmental assessment. Suitable mitigatin measures may als include the relcatin f significant surces f emissins utside the airshed in questin, use f cleaner fuels r technlgies, applicatin f cmprehensive pllutin cntrl measures, ffset activities at installatins cntrlled by the prject spnsr r ther facilities within the same airshed, and buy-dwn f emissins within the same airshed. Specific prvisins fr minimizing emissins and their impacts in pr air quality r eclgically sensitive airsheds shuld be established n a prject-by-prject r industry-specific basis. Offset prvisins utside the immediate cntrl f the prject spnsr r buy-dwns shuld be mnitred and enfrced by the lcal agency respnsible fr granting and mnitring emissin permits. Such prvisins shuld be in place prir t final cmmissining f the facility / prject. Pint Surces Pint surces are discrete, statinary, identifiable surces f emissins that release pllutants t the atmsphere. They are typically lcated in manufacturing r prductin plants. Within a given pint surce, there may be several individual emissin pints that cmprise the pint surce. 15 Pint surces are characterized by the release f air pllutants typically assciated with the cmbustin f fssil fuels, such as nitrgen xides (NOx), sulfur dixide (SO2), carbn mnxide (CO), and particulate matter (PM), as well as ther air pllutants including certain vlatile rganic cmpunds (VOCs) and metals that may als be assciated with a wide range f industrial activities. Emissins frm pint surces shuld be avided and cntrlled accrding t gd internatinal industry practice (GIIP) applicable t the relevant industry sectr, depending n ambient cnditins, thrugh the cmbined applicatin f prcess mdificatins and emissins cntrls, examples f which are prvided in Annex Additinal recmmendatins regarding stack height and emissins frm small cmbustin facilities are prvided belw. Stack Height The stack height fr all pint surces f emissins, whether significant r nt, shuld be designed accrding t GIIP (see Annex 1.1.3) t avid excessive grund level cncentratins due t dwnwash, wakes, and eddy effects, and t ensure reasnable diffusin t minimize impacts. Fr prjects where there are multiple surces f emissins, stack heights shuld be established with due cnsideratin t emissins frm all ther prject surces, bth pint and fugitive. Nn-significant surces f emissins, 13 Nearby generally cnsiders an area within a radius f up t 20 times the stack height. 14 An airshed shuld be cnsidered as having pr air quality if natinally legislated air quality standards r WHO Air Quality Guidelines are exceeded significantly. 15 Emissin pints refer t a specific stack, vent, r ther discrete pint f pllutin release. This term shuld nt be cnfused with pint surce, which is a regulatry distinctin frm area and mbile surces. The characterizatin f pint surces int multiple emissins pints is useful fr allwing mre detailed reprting f emissins infrmatin. APRIL 30,

Small Cmbustin Facilities Emissins Guidelines Small cmbustin prcesses are systems designed t deliver electrical r mechanical pwer, steam, heat, r any cmbinatin f these, regardless f the fuel type, with a ttal, rated heat input capacity f between three Megawatt thermal (MWth) and 50 MWth. The emissins guidelines in Table are applicable t small cmbustin prcess installatins perating mre than 500 hurs per year, and thse with an annual capacity utilizatin f mre than 30 percent. Plants firing a mixture f fuels shuld cmpare emissins perfrmance with these guidelines based n the sum f the relative cntributin f each applied fuel 17. Lwer emissin values may apply if the prpsed facility is lcated in an eclgically sensitive airshed, r airshed with pr air quality, in rder t address ptential cumulative impacts frm the installatin f mre than ne small cmbustin plant as part f a distributed generatin prject. 16 Small cmbustin surces are thse with a ttal rated heat input capacity f 50MWth r less. 17 The cntributin f a fuel is the percentage f heat input (LHV) prvided by this fuel multiplied by its limit value.

8 Envirnmental, Health, and Safety Guidelines AIR EMISSIONS AND AMBIENT AIR QUALITY Fugitive Surces Fugitive surce air emissins refer t emissins that are distributed spatially ver a wide area and nt cnfined t a specific discharge pint. They riginate in peratins where exhausts are nt captured and passed thrugh a stack. Fugitive emissins have the ptential fr much greater grund-level impacts per unit than statinary surce emissins, since they are discharged and dispersed clse t the grund. The tw main types f fugitive emissins are Vlatile Organic Cmpunds (VOCs) and particulate matter (PM). Other cntaminants (NOx, SO2 and CO) are mainly assciated with cmbustin prcesses, as described abve. Prjects with ptentially significant fugitive surces f emissins shuld establish the need fr ambient quality assessment and mnitring practices. Open burning f slid wastes, whether hazardus r nnhazardus, is nt cnsidered gd practice and shuld be avided, as the generatin f plluting emissins frm this type f surce cannt be cntrlled effectively. Vlatile Organic Cmpunds (VOCs) The mst cmmn surces f fugitive VOC emissins are assciated with industrial activities that prduce, stre, and use VOC-cntaining liquids r gases where the material is under pressure, expsed t a lwer vapr pressure, r displaced frm an enclsed space. Typical surces include equipment leaks, pen vats and mixing tanks, strage tanks, unit peratins in wastewater treatment systems, and accidental releases. Equipment leaks include valves, fittings, and elbws which are subject t leaks under pressure. The recmmended preventin and cntrl techniques fr VOC emissins assciated with equipment leaks include: Equipment mdificatins, examples f which are presented in Annex 1.1.4; Implementing a leak detectin and repair (LDAR) prgram that cntrls fugitive emissins by regularly mnitring t detect leaks, and implementing repairs within a predefined time perid. 18 Fr VOC emissins assciated with handling f chemicals in pen vats and mixing prcesses, the recmmended preventin and cntrl techniques include: Substitutin f less vlatile substances, such as aqueus slvents; Cllectin f vaprs thrugh air extractrs and subsequent treatment f gas stream by remving VOCs with cntrl devices such as cndensers r activated carbn absrptin; Cllectin f vaprs thrugh air extractrs and subsequent treatment with destructive cntrl devices such as: Catalytic Incineratrs: Used t reduce VOCs frm prcess exhaust gases exiting paint spray bths, vens, and ther prcess peratins Thermal Incineratrs: Used t cntrl VOC levels in a gas stream by passing the stream thrugh a cmbustin chamber where the VOCs are burned in air at temperatures between 700º C t 1,300º C Enclsed Oxidizing Flares: Used t cnvert VOCs int CO2 and H2O by way f direct cmbustin Use f flating rfs n strage tanks t reduce the pprtunity fr vlatilizatin by eliminating the headspace present in cnventinal strage tanks. Particulate Matter (PM) The mst cmmn pllutant invlved in fugitive emissins is dust r particulate matter (PM). This is released during certain peratins, such as transprt and pen strage f slid materials, and frm expsed sil surfaces, including unpaved rads. 18 Fr mre infrmatin, see Leak Detectin and Repair Prgram (LDAR), at: APRIL 30,

HCFCs shuld nly be cnsidered as interim / bridging alternatives as determined by the hst cuntry cmmitments and regulatins. 20 Mbile Surces Land-based Similar t ther cmbustin prcesses, emissins frm vehicles include CO, NOx, SO2, PM and VOCs. Emissins frm n-rad and ff-rad vehicles shuld cmply with natinal r reginal 19 Examples include: chlrflurcarbns (CFCs); halns; 1,1,1-trichlrethane (methyl chlrfrm); carbn tetrachlride; hydrchlrflurcarbns (HCFCs); hydrbrmflurcarbns (HBFCs); and methyl brmide. They are currently used in a variety f applicatins including: dmestic, cmmercial, and prcess refrigeratin (CFCs and HCFCs); dmestic, cmmercial, and mtr vehicle air cnditining (CFCs and HCFCs); fr manufacturing fam prducts (CFCs); fr slvent cleaning applicatins (CFCs, HCFCs, methyl chlrfrm, and carbn tetrachlride); as aersl prpellants (CFCs); in fire prtectin systems (halns and HBFCs); and as crp fumigants (methyl brmide). 20 Additinal infrmatin is available thrugh the Mntreal Prtcl Secretariat web site available at: prgrams. In the absence f these, the fllwing apprach shuld be cnsidered: Regardless f the size r type f vehicle, fleet wners / peratrs shuld implement the manufacturer recmmended engine maintenance prgrams; Drivers shuld be instructed n the benefits f driving practices that reduce bth the risk f accidents and fuel cnsumptin, including measured acceleratin and driving within safe speed limits; Operatrs with fleets f 120 r mre units f heavy duty vehicles (buses and trucks), r 540 r mre light duty vehicles 21 (cars and light trucks) within an airshed shuld cnsider additinal ways t reduce ptential impacts including: Replacing lder vehicles with newer, mre fuel efficient alternatives Cnverting high-use vehicles t cleaner fuels, where feasible Installing and maintaining emissins cntrl devices, such as catalytic cnverters Implementing a regular vehicle maintenance and repair prgram Greenhuse Gases (GHGs) Sectrs that may have ptentially significant emissins f greenhuse gases (GHGs) 22 include energy, transprt, heavy industry (e.g. cement prductin, irn / steel manufacturing, aluminum smelting, petrchemical industries, petrleum refining, fertilizer manufacturing), agriculture, frestry and waste management.

Fr cmbustin prcesses, indicatr parameters typically include the quality f inputs, such as the sulfur cntent f fuel. Baseline calculatins: Befre a prject is develped, baseline air quality mnitring at and in the vicinity f the site shuld be undertaken t assess backgrund levels f key pllutants, in rder t differentiate between existing ambient cnditins and prject-related impacts. Mnitring type and frequency: Data n emissins and ambient air quality generated thrugh the mnitring prgram shuld be representative f the emissins discharged by the prject ver time.

The term NOx serves as a cmpsite between NO and NO 2 and emissins are usually reprted as NOx. Here the NO is multiplied by the rati f mlecular weights f NO 2 t NO and added t the NO 2 emissins. Means f reducing NOx emissins are based n the mdificatin f perating cnditins such as minimizing the resident time at peak temperatures, reducing the peak temperatures by increasing heat transfer rates r minimizing the availability f xygen.

Electricity purchase is usually cheaper verall, especially when the cst t treat turbine-quality biler feed water is included. If the heat-pwer rati f the distributin prcess is less than that f pwer systems, pprtunities shuld be cnsidered t increase the rati; fr example, by using lw-pressure steam t drive absrptin cling systems rather than using electrically-driven vaprcmpressin systems.
