CONTROL TECHNIQUES FOR PARTICULATE AIR POLLUTANTS

THIS REPORT IS THE FIRST OF A SERIES OF DOCUMENTS TO BE PRODUCED UNDER THE PROGRAM ESTABLISHED TO CARRY OUT THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR DEVELOPING AND DISTRIBUTING AIR POLLUTION CONTROL TECHNOLOGY INFORMATION. PARTICULATE MATTER IN THE ATMOSPHERE IS KNOWN TO HAVE MANY ADVERSE EFFECTS UPON HEALTH AND WELFARE, AND REDUCTION OF EMISSIONS OF THIS POLLUTANT IS OF PRIME IMPORTANCE TO ANY EFFECTIVE AIR POLLUTION ABATEMENT PROGRAM. PARTICULATE POLLUTANTS ORIGINATE FROM A VARIETY OF SOURCES, AND THE EMISSIONS VARY WIDELY IN PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS. SIMILARLY, THE AVAILABLE CONTROL TECHNIQUES VARY IN TYPE, APPLICATION, EFFECTIVENESS, AND COST. THE MANY AGRICULTURAL, COMMERCIAL, DOMESTIC, INDUSTRIAL, AND MUNICIPAL PROCESSES AND ACTIVITIES THAT GENERATE PARTICULATE AIR POLLUTANTS ARE DESCRIBED INDIVIDUALLY. THE VARIOUS TECHNIQUES THAT CAN BE APPLIED TO CONTROL EMISSIONS OF PARTICULATE MATTER FROM THESE SOURCES ARE REVIEWED AND COMPARED. A TECHNICAL CONSIDERATION OF THE MOST IMPORTANT TYPES OF GAS CLEANING DEVICES FORMS A MAJOR SEGMENT, WHILE SECTIONS ON SOURCE EVALUATION, EQUIPMENT COST AND COST EFECTIVENESS ANALYSIS, AND CURRENT RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ALSO ARE INCLUDED. /AUTHOR/
