Fossil Fuel Fired Industrial Boilers--Background Information, Volume 1: Chapters 1-9, Draft EIS. (See U.S. EPA Headquarters Library Copy #PB82-202573).
This document provides background information for the fossil fuel-fired industrial boiler source category. Fossil fuels considered include coal, oil and natural gas. Background information for industrial boilers includes a survey of boiler types, sizes, operating characteristics, and existing State and Federal regulations. Uncontrolled emissions of particulate matter, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are quantified and factors affecting these emissions are discussed. Control technologies for particulate matter, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides are identified and discussed with respect to the technologies' applicability to industrial boilers, developmental status, and factors affecting performance. Emissions data for each technology are also presented. Finally, environmental, energy and cost impacts of applying these technologies to fossil fuel-fired industrial boilers are presented and discussed. This information was developed in support of potential new source performance standards for industrial boilers.
