Abstract:

This report describes the development and demonstration of several new technologies for controlling air pollutants, particularly nitrogen oxides NOX and small particulates. It provides the results of a project undertaken to investigate potential NOx problems at military sites and to develop potential solutions. Work on the project was performed primarily at McClellan AFB in California and at Sorbent Technologies facilities in Ohio. The research work involved gas-cleaning approaches and centered on exhaust gases from radiant tube heaters for paint drying, mobile diesel generators, stationary diesel generators, diesel buses and trucks, incinerators, and natural-gas-fired boilers. Major sources of NOx and small particulate emissions at McClellan AFB were observed to be units that burn diesel fuels. These included mobile and stationary generators, trucks and buses. Two new technologies to control NOx and one new technology to control small particulates were successfully developed and demonstrated.
