The objective of this project is to identify emerging control technologies that are or may become commercially available by 1985 for stationary hydrocarbon and particulate emissions sources. The report details a matrix of applicable control techniques, percent emission reductions achievable, schedules of availability, and costs. Emphasis is on identifying control techniques more stringent than the LAER techniques previously defined for EPA's policy study of nonattainment areas. This study finds that: (1) for most ducted emissions from particulate sources fabric filters and electrostatic precipitators will remain the most advanced control technology; (2) there are a range of hydrocarbon control techniques that offer the potential for reducing emissions through 1985 and beyond--the more important of these being the activated carbon and wet scrubbing control technologies.
