CATC Air Pollution Technology Fact Sheets (FS) and Technical Bulletins (TB)

The Air Pollution Control Technology Fact Sheets are short descriptions of different types of control technologies, including emission limits and reductions, application, costs, and characteristics. The Technical Bulletins are longer documents with more detailed information about specific control technologies.

You will need Adobe Reader to view the files in this table. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.
