AIR POLLUTION FROM HOT MIX PLANTS

THIS STUDY WAS UNDERTAKEN TO DETERMINE THE POLLUTION CAUSED BY HOT MIX PLANTS. IT WAS FOUND THAT NO PLANT OPERATING IN THE STATE CONSISTENTLY OPERATES WITHIN THE REGULATIONS ESTABLISHED BY THE LOUISIANNA AIR CONTROL COMMISSION WHILE MAINTAINING REASONABLE PRODUCTION. ALL PLANTS COULD IMPROVE THEIR PARTICULAR EMISSIONS THROUGH MORE CARE OF, AND CONCERN FOR THEIR, PRESENT EQUIPMENT AND PROCEDURES. ALMOST HALF OF THE POLLUTION CAUSED BY MOST PLANTS ORIGINATES FROM SOURCES OTHER THAN THE STACK. AIR POLLUTION FROM THESE SECONDARY SOURCES COULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED. THE STACK EMISSIONS SHOULD BE REDUCED BY THE USE OF WATER SCRUBBERS OR BAG COLLECTORS. /AUTHOR/
