The report gives results of phase 2 of a program to demonstrate new technology for reducing exhaust gas volume and controlling emissions from the steel industry sintering process. Phase 2 entailed construction, operation, and evaluation of the system and, in addition, the construction, operation, and evaluation of a gravel bed filter system for particulate control. Windbox gas recirculation reduced particulates, hydrocarbons, SO2, and CO by an amount equal to the recycle rate (25% average). Capital and operatings costs (1978 dollars) were $5.3 million and $0.863 million, respectively. The gravel bed filter system achieved an average particulate removal rate of 84.5%. Capital and operating costs (1978 dollars) were $5.101 million and $1.197 million, respectively.
