Contents Notes
While sulfuric and nitric acids are considered primary precursors of acid deposition, contributions of hydrogen chloride (HCl) and hydrogen fluoride (HF) are also significant. This report summarizes the findings of a study to identify and characterize sources of emissions to the atmosphere of HCl and HF. Emission factors were identified for each major source category based on the most recent data available and were used to develop nationwide emissions estimates for base year 1980. Descriptions of each source category, controls commonly used for each source, and an assessment of the accuracy of emission factors are also included. Major sources of HCl are coal combustion, waste incineration, and organic chemical manufacture. Sources of HF include coal combustion and the production of primary aluminum, HF, and phosphate fertilizers.
