The report summarizes the existing data base on NOx, SO2, and particulate matter emissions from combustion sources burning coal/liquid mixtures (CLMs). It also gives available emissions data for the various trace elements, and identifies control techniques that can reduce the emissions of the above pollutants. It assesses these techniques for their efficiency to reduce emissions from CLM combustion to levels representative of oil firing. In addition to the technical evaluations, economic evaluations of control technologies are presented. Capital costs, operating expense, and overall lifecycle costs are discussed. Multipollutant control capabilities of the selected control technologies are assessed, as well as any secondary pollution problems associated with using a particular control technique. Any particular problems with retrofit applications of the devices are highlighted, and any interferences of the control devices with the combustion process are discussed.
