The Manual provides up-to-date information on point source and stationary area source air pollution controls for volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter (PM), oxides of nitrogen (NOX), and some acid gasses (primarily SO(sub 2) and HCl). The control devices included in this Manual are generally well established devices with a long track record of performance. The objectives of this Manual are two-fold: (1) to provide guidance to industry and regulatory authorities for the development of accurate and consistent costs (capital costs, operating and maintenance expenses, and other costs) for air pollution control devices, and (2) to establish a standardized and peer reviewed costing methodology by which all air pollution control costing analyses can be performed. To perform these objectives, this Manual, for the last twenty-five years, has compiled up-to-date information for 'add-on' (downstream of an air pollution source) air pollution control systems and provided a comprehensive, concise, consistent, and easy-to-use procedure for estimating and (where appropriate) escalating these costs.
