The report gives results of a preliminary emissions assessment of the air, water, and solid waste pollutants produced by conventional stationary combustion systems. It gives results in four principal categories: utilities (electric generation), industrial (steam generation, space heating, and stationary engines), commercial/institutional (space heating and stationary engines), and residential (space heating). For each principal combustion system category, it gives: process types and operating efficiencies, fuel consumption, pollutant sources and characteristics, major research and development trends, fuel consumption trends, and technical areas where emission data are incomplete or unreliable. It also gives the pollutant emissions from applicable unit operations for each of 56 source classifications, using a uniform combustion source classification system. It identifies major gaps in available data regarding the population and capacity of combustion systems, application of control measures, fuel composition, and other parameters which significantly influence pollutant characteristics and emission rates.
