A one-month study was carried out at an isolated oil-fired power plant in New York State to assess the impact of primary sulfate emissions on air quality. Emissions of total sulfate from the source varied from 22 kg/hr to 82 kg/hr per boiler with the sulfuric acid concentration averaging 74% of the total sulfate. Particulate emissions ranged from 12 kg/hr to 70 kg/hr per boiler with between 32% and 67% of the particle mass as water soluble sulfate. Vanadium was implicated as the driving force in the magnitude of the primary sulfate emissions. Measurements taken 5 km downwind of the plant indicated a source sulfate contribution of from 30% to 60% of the 24 hr average ambient levels.
