The first step is to determine the amount of NOx that is emitted per year when natural gas is combusted= emission rate * total amount gas natural gas combusted= 0.4 lbs. per million cubic feet * 50,000,000 ft3= 20 lbs. per yearThe next step is to determine the amount of NOx emitter per year when fuel No. 2 is combusted= emission rate * total amount gas natural gas combusted= 1.6 lbs. per 1000 gallons * 100,000 gallons= 1600 lbs. per year of NOx from No. 2 gasThe third step is to find the total amount by adding the two amount of NOx emitted from combusting natural gas, and No. 2 fuel= 20 lbs. + 1600 lbs.= 9,000 lbs.
