Abstract:

The Army has several coal-fired boiler plants, and, in accordance with its Solid Fuel Conversion Program, will have many more in the future. Particulate emissions from such plants are strictly regulated by state agencies. The current coal-fired plants use various particulate-control technologies, with mixed success. This study examined these technologies and determined several design deficiencies which could contribute to the uneven performance of existing Army air pollution control devices. This study also identifies three new particulate control technologies with possible application to Army installations and industrial facilities, and gives recommendations for the operation and maintenance of the Armys existing technologies.
