The report gives results of an engineering investigation of fugitive (non-ducted) emissions in the iron and steel industry. Operations excluded from the study are coke ovens, basic oxygen furnace (BOF) charging, and blast furnace cast houses. Fugitive emission factors for iron and steel sources were compiled from the literature and from contact with industry sources. Field testing of particulate emissions from materials handling operations and from traffic on paved and unpaved roads was utilized to develop improved emission factors for open fugitive emission sources. Ranking fugitive sources on the basis of typically controlled fugitive emissions of fine particulates (< 5 microns in diameter) indicates that electric furnaces, vehicular traffic, BOFs, storage pile activities, and sintering, in decreasing order, are the most important sources of fugitive emissions studied. Substantial progress has been made in developing devices and methods for emission capture and removal. However, major problems exist in retrofitting proposed systems to existing operations. There is also a serious lack of data on uncontrolled emission quantities, control device effectiveness, and control costs.
