The report summarizes results of a study to gather and analyze background information and technical data related to air emissions from glass container manufacturing operations. It covers emissions from three plant areas: raw materials preparation and handling, glass melting, and forming and finishing operations. Melting furnace emissions account for over 95 percent of the total plant emissions. The major pollutants are NOx, SOx, and submicron particulates consisting mainly (over 90 percent) of mineral sulfates. Source severity factors determined by this study were 0.38 for NOx, 0.56 for SOx, and 0.035 for particulates, with others being less than 0.01. Source severity is a measure of the potential environmental effect of air emissions and is the ratio of the maximum average ground level concentration to the primary ambient air quality standard for criteria pollutants.
