The U.S. Environmental Protectional Agency (EPA) Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards (OAQPS) is investigating hot mix asphalt plants to identify and quanitfy particulate matter (PM), methylene chloride extractable matter (MCEM), and organic hazardous air pollutant (HAP) emissions during asphalt concrete loading operations. In support of this investigation, the OAQPS issued Pacific Environmental Services, Inc. (PES) a series of work assignments to conduct emissions testing at a hot mix asphalt plant during load-out operations. The primary objective of the emissions testing was to characterize the uncontrolled wmissions of PM, MCEM, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), semi-volatile organic hazardous air pollutants (SVOHAPS), and volatile organic hazardous air pollutants (VOHAPS) from a hot mix production plant during loading operations. An asphalt plant south of Los Angeles, California was selected by EPA as the host facility. Testing was performed over five consecutive days beginning on July 24, 1998. Testing was performed under two conditions. Under normal operations, testing was performed to characterize load-out emissions from the tunnel exhaust and load-in emissions from the asphalt concrete storage silo. Under background conditions, testing was performed to characterize emissions from the combustion of diesel fuel in transport trucks.
