In 1977 at the request of EPA, Region IX, Enforcement Division, PEDCo Environmental, Inc. conducted an investigation of particulate matter control equipment which could be installed at two copper smelters located in Arizona. The two smelters investigated were the New Cornelia Branch copper smelter of the Phelps Dodge Corporation located in Ajo, Arizona and the Magma Cipper Company copper smelter located in San Manuel, Arizona. The purpose of the investigation was to determine the technical feasibility of compliance and the cost of control equipment necessary to comply with the particulate matter control regulation. Fabric filters, scrubbers, dry and wet electrostatic precipitators were investigated with the assistance of Industrial Gas Cleaning Institute member companies. This report includes a description of each smelter; an analysis of available emission data for each smelter; and a summary of capital costs, annual costs and technical control equipment data for 9 control options for each smelter.
