The report assesses applicability of particulate control technology to industrial boilers. It is one of a series to aid in determining the technological basis for a New Source Performance Standard for Industrial Boilers. It gives current and potential capabilities of alternative particulate control techniques, and identifies the cost, energy, and environmental impacts of the most promising options. Fabric filters and electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) can exceed 99% control efficiency and can be used on industrial boilers. A baghouse seems more economical for very small combustion units or to meet a very stringent emissions requirement when burning low sulfur coal.
