Abstract:

The report is the result of an investigation of the possibilities of predicting the exhaust emissions from various types of engines and small heating plant furnaces. The engines investigated include spark ignition engines, compression ignition engines, and gas turbines. Based on a survey of currently available literature and data, it was determined that carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen correlate reasonably well with basic engine variables for spark ignition and compression ignition engines. Hydrocarbon emissions in these engines do not correlate well, even though some consistent effects of variables were found for spark ignition engines. Recent correlations of various smoke measuring devices are presented. Correlation relating emissions of sulfur dioxide and total oxides of nitrogen for small heating plant furnaces with the gross heat input for oil-, coal-, and gas-fired units were established. In addition, equations used to calculate theoretical carbon dioxide emissions for gaseous, liquid, and solid fuels are presented. Emission factors for these pollutants are presented.
