Abstract:

This project is intended to serve three purposes. First, it is to act as a survey of air pollution control equipment manufacturers while also providing a questionnaire used in evaluating their equipment. Second, it presents a computerized cost model used to select the optimum piece of air pollution control equipment for a given situation. Third, it is hoped that this procedure will allow users of air pollution control equipment in Army Materiel Command production facilities to choose the best device quickly and efficiently. Some brief background on air pollution and its control is first discussed and is followed by a survey of current equipment selection methods. The development of the annual cost equation, which is the basis of selection in this project, is illustrated for a generalized pollution control system. The data needed for the model along with a computer program for its manipulation are then presented. Finally, advantages and disadvantages of this selection procedure are mentioned and recommendations for future research in the field of pollution control noted. Author
