The report documents a field testing and engineering evaluation of the performance of a retrofitted, mobile-hood, high-energy-scrubber control system, abating coke-side pushing emissions from a 58-oven coke battery. It documents the venturi-scrubber inlet and outlet emission rates, as well as emission factors for filterable and condensible particulate, sulfur dioxide, sulfur trioxide, total sulfur oxides, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, benzene, benzene and homologues, total light hydrocarbons, methane and homologues, and ethylene and homologues. Results indicate that the mobile hood collects particulate emissions resulting from green and clean pushes at 22% to 54% efficiencies, respectively, or from 30% to 92%, respectively, using two different estimating techniques. Scrubber performance averaged 99.3% for particulate emissions captured in the hood.
