The report summarizes the state of process modifications relative to the control of fine particulate emissions from a stationary combustion sources (electric utilities and industrial processes); municipal incinerators; iron and steel plants; ferro-alloy plants; and nonferrous metal smelters (zinc plants, copper smelters, aluminum reduction cells. Modifications to conventional stationary combustion sources considered include ash fluxing, SO3 addition to flue gas, staged combustion, use of fuel additives, fly-ash agglomeration, solvent refining, and flue-gas recirculation. Unconventional systems studied include fluidized bed, coal gasification, and submerged combustion. For incinerators, combined fuel-refuse firing, gas cooling, and pyrolysis methods are considered. Emphasis for iron and steel plants is given to the bottom-blowing oxygen process (Q-BOP). Modification of the conventional reverberatory smelting procedure and the introduction of hydrometallurgical methods are discussed for copper, and chloride electrolytic (ASP) process by ALCOA is considered for aluminum.
