This capsule report focuses on the major sources and controls of air emissions at waste management facilities, how these emissions occur, and how they can be controlled. The major sources that are discussed in detail include surface impoundments, the broad and diverse category of tanks and ancillary equipment, containers, and treatment devices. As each source is described, controls that are inherent to that source or commonly found on that particular source are presented. In addition, details are provided on the basic mechanisms by which emissions occur and the major factors that affect the emissions.
