The report gives a semi-technical overview of the contribution of particulate matter to the overall U.S. air pollution problem. It also discusses contributions of the Particulate Technology Branch of EPA's Industrial Environmental Research Laboratory at Research Triangle Park, N.C., aimed at solving the particulate pollutant control problem. Singling out fine particulates as a pollutant of major significance because of involved health hazards, the report discusses fundamental research in physical and chemical mechanisms particle formation and collection, as well as testing and demonstration projects that have been completed, are underway, or are planned. Among conventional control system components discussed are cyclones, baghouses, wet scrubbers, and electrostatic precipitators. Also discussed are such new concepts and novel devices as charged droplet scrubbers, ceramic membrane filters, magnetic filter beds, and those specifically designed for processes operating at high temperatures and pressures.
