The hard chromium electroplating industry has been affected by numerous air quality regulations on both state and federal levels, In 1995, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency promulgated its 'National Emission Standards for Chromium Emissions from Hard and Decorative Chromium Electroplating and Chromium Anodizing Tanks' (U.S. EPA, 1995 a). Under the standards, facilities that perform industrial or functional chrome plating must demonstrate that chromium emissions do not exceed acceptable limits, and must also satisfy monitoring, record-keeping and reporting requirements. Various chemical and mechanical strategies for air pollution control exist to accomplish these goals. This report evaluates the use of hardware control technologies and fume suppressants to extract, recover or suppress chromium emissions prior to venting the exhaust air to the atmosphere.
