The EPA and your BBQ's
« on: March 18, 2015, 04:19:56 AM »

You can't make this stuff up; they are out of control.  A friend sent the following to me;

The EPA is funding a study on propane grill emissions that suggest pit masters use a special tray to catch grease drippings and a "catalytic" filtration system to reduce air pollution.  The EPA is funding a $15,000 University of California-Riverside study to look at the particulate emissions you breathe when grilling over an open flame.  Along with the drip tray, the emission removal system includes the use of a ôsecondary air filtration system is composed of a single pipe duct system which contains a specialized metal filter, a metal fan blade, a drive shaft, and an accompanying power system with either a motorized or manual method. 

Below is the full article.

Yup.  About the same.   >:(   If this wasn't so darned maddening, I would find it amusing.

I wonder what will be next; catalytic converters for cattle, horses, or even humans, etc... asses to burn off the methane emitted when we fart?  Roger

We the people are the only ones who are gonna stop it! How exactly I'm not sure, my guess is that it would take a lot of people together and start messing with BBQ grills and well that's a hell of a lot more people than those running owbs.

Looking at the article, it says gas grills.  So, I guess I'll have to dig out my old wood fired BBQ grill that I used to cook with if the gas grills get too expensive.  Roger

I think I will try making a methane digester out of my septic tank and try cooking with it, perhaps I will invite the Maine DEP for a cookout >:D
