This report discusses the current state of the art of pollutant emission measurement and cleanup technology related to military jet engine test cells. Considerable emissions data from jet engines is available, but data from test cell stacks is sparse. Gaseous emission data for the major pollutant species (CO, NO, NO2, SO2, SO3) are reliable; particulate, opacity, and unburned hydrocarbon data are less so. The five types of test cell cleanup methods that have been experimentally evaluated--electrostatic precipitator, nucleation scrubber, fuel additives, thermal converter, and fuel atomization improvement--are described in detail. Other, less promising methods are briefly discussed. Several methods are quite effective in reducing test cell emissions. Fuel additives are effective in reducing test cell plume opacity. Capital and operating cost data on these methods are presented. For the nucleation scrubber, the best-developed cleanup technology, three cost estimates from different sources are given.
