The report describes a development methodology and provides sample summary sheets for a Multimedia Environmental Control Engineering Handbook. This effort is part of EPA's documentation of the environmental effects of many industrial processes (including those involving fossil fuels) to determine where environmental controls are needed and, if needed, which existing controls are applicable or may have to be developed. Each main classification of the Handbook is subdivided to specific devices or processes. The completed Handbook would require that each device have a summary sheet filled out to include appropriate identification, pollutants controlled, process description, application range, capital costs, operating costs, operating efficiencies, environmental problems, special notes, manufacturers/suppliers, and references. The completed Handbook is intended to be a reference to be used as a guide to potential solutions, and alternatives to environmental problems.
