This report identifies possible control measures which Federal, State, or local control agencies might use to reduce particulate emissions in areas where the combustion of oil has a significant impact on air quality. To arrive at viable, effective controls, a comprehensive survey was conducted into such techniques as burner design changes, fuel restrictions, additives, mandatory periodic inspection/maintenance programs and particulate collection devices. Emerging technology that may assist boiler and furnaces operators to achieve lower particulate emissions was also identified. The experiences gained by agencies with active particulate control programs were evaluated, and their procedures included among the list of possible control measures where appropriate. These findings are summarized along with tabulations of possible control measures according to their stringency and applicability to residential, commercial, industrial, and utility boilers and space heating furnaces.
