The report presents a collection of formalized information on air pollution control for sixteen processes in these nine industrial areas: (1) Rendering; (2) Asphalt batching; (3) Petroleum refining; (4) BOF steelmaking; (5) Coal cleaning; (6) Brick and tile kilns; (7) Primary copper smelting; (8) Kraft pulp industry bark boilers; (9) Ferroalloy furnaces. This report includes a completed narrative description of each area, describing the processes and air pollution abatement methods in use. In addition, specifications for abatement equipment have been written for large and small processes, and for two levels of air pollution control. The capital and operating cost data prepared for each process were summarized and average costs are included in this report. In addition, correlations were made between process size, gas flow and abatement cost, where meaningful relationships appeared to exist.
