Evaluation of Particulate Matter Control Efficiency



Compliance Particulate Matter and Opacity

APCC performed a start-up compliance testing program of an incinerator used for the incineration of non-hazardous, non-regulated waste. A stack temperature of 1,200°F combined with widely varying moisture content of the materials being incinerated presented challenges for maintaining isokinetic sampling. The waste stream consisted primarily of animal carcasses, wet and dry bedding and paper trash.

APCC assisted facility personnel to demonstrate compliance without emissions controls while operating at near maximum waste throughput. This allowed the facility to operated without the cost of operating and maintaining emission controls.

Identification of HAPs Emissions from Batch Processes using FTIR

APCC evaluated HAPs emissions from multiple batch processes in response to a state issued Notice of Violation (NOV). Continuous concentration and flow measurements were made over complete batches of 24 hours. FTIR provided on-site identification of unknown compounds. Data gathered provided the basis for withdrawal of the NOV and served as the basis for a Title V permit application. In addition, emissions data identified opportunities for process changes that reduced materials costs.

Evaluation of Particulate Matter Control Efficiency

APCC evaluated particulate matter control on the exhaust of a pill making line. Testing identified opportunities for improved product recovery that resulted lower particulate emissions and lower materials costs.
