A program was conducted to quantify fine-particle emissions (0.01-2 microns) from particulate pollution sources. The primary objective was to use the best data currently available (i.e., 1969-1970) on particle-size distributions of particulates from uncontrolled and controlled sources, fractional efficiency curves for specific control devices, and the degree of application of control equipment on specific sources to estimate the mass and number of fine particles emitted from particulate pollution sources. Secondary objectives were the assessment of (1) the applicability of standard sampling and particle sizing methods to the fine particle regime, and (2) the current understanding of the adverse effects of fine particulate pollutants. This report presents the results of this study.
