Abstract:
The "Stationary Source Control Techniques Document for Fine Particulate Matter" presents up-to-date information on the methods of preventing or reducing emissions of PM-10 and PM-2.5 (particles having nominal aerodynamic diameters less than or equal to 10 microns and 2.5 microns, respectively) from stationary sources. This document is an update of "Control Techniques for Particulate Matter from Stationary Sources, Volume 1," EPA-450/3-81-005a (1982).

This document was prepared to support the development of State programs to meet national ambient air quality standards for PM-10 and PM-2.5 promulgated in 1997. Topics discussed include the principles, design, operation and application of various control techniques, their emission reduction efficiencies, and their capital and annual costs. Methods of measuring and monitoring in-stack and fugitive particulate matter emissions from stationary sources are also discussed.
