The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Emission Standards Division (ESD) is investigating iron and steel foundries to identify and quantify hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) emitted from cupolas; electric arc furnaces; and pouring, cooling and shakedown operations of sand mold casting processes. The Waupaca Foundry, located in Tell City, Indiana, uses a baghouse and was the subject of this test program. Testing at the Waupaca Foundry was conducted by two EMAD contractors to address the following ESD requirements: (1) characterize HAP emissions from cuplas that are controlled by baghouses; (2) characterize uncontrolled HAP emissions from pouring, cooling, and shakeout (PCS) processes; (3) determine baghouse performance in controlling HAP emissions from cupolas; and (4) identify surrogates for estimating HAP emissions from the subject foundary processes.
