The study evaluates the air pollution potential of emissions of particulates, sulfur dioxide, oxides of nitrogen, and hydrocarbons from the anticipated development of an oil shale industry. The analysis is based primarily on the published description of a TOSCO II retorting process as planned for commercial use by the Colony Development Operation. The technology, processes, plans, projections, and environmental impacts of oil shale development are reviewed. The results of dispersion model calculations of concentrations of pollutants in ambient air near oil shale plants employing TOSCO II and in situ processes are presented. These calculations for the TOSCO II plant assume that best available controls are applied to the process planned by Colony. Requirements for additional control are estimated by comparing calculated ambient air quality with standards. Options for supplying the additional control indicated for particulates and sulfur dioxide are identified.
