Contents Notes
"Air emission tests consisted of three sampling runs with coal only and three runs with coal and Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF). Sampling was done at the stack following gas cleanup by electrostatic precipitators. Analysis was done for particulates (EPA Method 5), SO, (Method16), chlorides (as HCI) and NO,. A precipitator malfunction and cleanout occurred just prior to the tests. Particulates averaged 0.022 gr/dscf burning coal and 0.059 gr/dscf burning coal and RDF. Chlorides increased slightly; NO, was not significantly affected. SO, results appeared to be affected by the precipitator cleanout. Dust buildup in the ESPs was noted when burning RDF, indicating that some adjustment to the precipitators may be needed when using RDF to achieve maximum particulate cleanup of the gas stream. The full report also discusses RDF preparation equipment and RDF feed equipment developed for the tests."
