Contents Notes
To assist national, state, and local control agency personnel and industry personnel in evaluating fugitive emission control plans and in developing cost-effective control strategies, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has funded the preparation of a technical manual on the identification, assessment, and control of fugitive particulate emissions. This report summarizes the organizational structure and content of the manual. The organizational structure follows the steps to be undertaken in developing a cost-effective control strategy for fugitive particulate emissions. The procedural steps are the same whether the sources of interest are within a specific industrial facility or distributed over an air quality control jurisdiction. The manual summarizes the quality and extent of published performance data for control systems applicable to open dust sources and process sources. The scheme developed to rate performance data reflects the extent to which a control efficiency value is based on mass emission measurement and re- ported in enough detail for adequate validation. In addition to presenting a cost analysis methodology, the manual identifies primary cost elements and sources of cost data and presents a fully worked industrial example of cost-effective control strategy development.
