The paper discusses the development and use of a computerized advisory system for the control of air toxics. The program, is written for the IBM PC using Microsoft C V3.0 compiler and Windows for Data Library V1.0 for screen and keyboard interaction. The permit reviewer inputs information on the air emission stream characteristics as well as other information in the permit application. The program allows the permit reviewer to select a specific pollution control device for evaluation. The program then calculates design parameters and estimates costs for each control technology selected. The results can be compared against the applicant's actual or proposed design. The program is designed to easily allow what-if calculations, allowing the reviewer to change one or more parameters and recalculate the results. A report generator is included in the program.
