This document has been prepared to summarize current information on sulfur oxide air pollutants--sources and methods of control. Sulfur oxides originate from a variety of sources, and the emissions vary widely in physical and chemical characteristics. The many agricultural, commercial, domestic, industrial, and municipal sources of sulfur oxide pollutants are described individually in this document. The nature and quantities of the emissions from the various processes are discussed, and methods of control that have been successfully applied are listed. The control techniques described herein represent a broad spectrum of information from many engineering and other technical fields.
