The report gives methods and results of an environmental assessment test program at an industrial site. The aim of the program was to measure multimedia emissions changes as a result of applying NOx controls. Emissions of trace elements, organic materials, sulfur species, SO2, NOx, CO, and particulate matter were measured. These emissions, under normal and controlled (for NOx) were compared. Test results show that applying combustion modification NOx controls did not affect total particulate emissions from ESP outlet or sulfur species emissions. Some changes in trace element partitioning occurred with the application of NOx controls. Bioassays of ash samples for LEA operation had low or nondetectable toxicity/mutagenicity.
