The document was prepared to assist state and local regulatory agencies in the preparation of emission control regulations for contact sulfuric acid plants. The types and sources of air pollution in the contact sulfuric acid plant are discussed, and guidelines based on optimal use of available control technology are presented to assist agencies in developing regulations compatible with local conditions. Contact sulfuric acid plants can be designed to meet an SO2-tail-gas-emission ceiling of 6.5 lb/ton of acid produced. This is equivalent to the level attainable with both dual-absorption plants and commercially operating SO2-control processes. Appropriate equipment is commercially available and could be installed in all new and existing acid plants to reduce the acid mist emission levels to 0.5 lb/ton of acid produced. Efficient absorber operation can limit sulfur trioxide levels to 0.2 lb/ton acid produced on both new and existing installations. (Author)
