  Capsule Report, Sources and Air Emission Control Technologies at Waste Management Facilities (28 pp, 680 KB) (EPA/625/R-97/002) December 1997

This capsule report focuses on the major sources and controls of air emissions at waste management facilities, how these emissions occur, and how they can be controlled. The major sources that are discussed in detail include surface impoundments, the broad and diverse category of tanks and ancillary equipment, containers, and treatment devices. As each source is described, controls that are inherent to that source, or commonly found on that particular source, are presented. In addition, details are provided on the basic mechanisms by which emissions occur and on the major factors that affect the emissions.
