The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Georgia Institute of Technology School of Chemical and Bio-Molecular Engineering, and the US EPA, co-sponsored by Lehigh Cement Company and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), performed a collaborative test program on the feasibility of using cement kilns for the destruction of post-consumer carpet. Industry wants to utilize post-consumer carpet as a fuel to replace costly coal. The objective of this project is to conduct a feasibility test to determine the impact of carpet burning on; kiln fouling, fuel economy, mechanical equipment operation, and stack emissions. The source sampling program described here was designed to provide the stack emissions portion of the data necessary for the feasibility determination. Specifically, the following emissions determinations from the kiln were required: filterable particulate matter, condensable particulate matter, PM10 particulate matter, particle size distribution, HCl, HF-, HBr, Br-, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and 1990 Clean Air Act (CAA) metals (Sb, As, Ba, Be, Cd, Cr, Co, Pb, Mn, Hg, Ni, Se, Ag, Ti), dioxin/furans, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and carbon monoxide. In addition, O2 and CO2 concentrations were required for stack gas molecular weight calculation. ARCADIS G&M was contracted by CRI to provide these data.
