This is a background document in support of the contents of Section 1.8 of AP-2, Compilation of Air Pollutant Emission Factors, Second Edition. It concerns the major criteria pollutants emitted during the combustion of bagasse (a fiberous waste product in a sugar cane mill) in steam boilers. The general aspects of mill operations, physical characteristics of the bagasse and its combustion, furnace designs, air pollution control devices and factors affecting emissions are described. Stack emission tests are reviewed and analyzed for inclusion in the data base for developing factors for particulate and NOx emission while firing bagasse or bagasse and fuel oil. The reliability of these factors is evaluated and presented.
