This report presents the findings of a study to assess the need for new source performance standards (NSPS) for animal feed dryers. Industries which use animal feed dryers are included in SIC 2046: Wet Corn Milling; SIC 2047: Dog, Cat, and Other Pet Food; SIC 2048: Prepared Feeds and Feed Ingredients for Animals and Fowls; SIC 2063: Beet Sugar; SIC 2075: Soybean Oil Mills; SIC 2077: Animal and Marine Fats and Oils; SIC 2082: Malt Beverages; and SIC 2085: Distilled, Rectified, and Blended Liquors. Information and estimates concerning production, qrowth, industry structure, and emissions are presented. Animal feed dryers are sources of particulate matter emissions at plants where they are used. Methods of air pollution control and their effectiveness are examined. Summary of State regulations applicable to dryers is given. An estimate of total emission reduction achievable through an NSPS is given.
