Title: Back to the future: stationary source testing for fine PM

Abstract

Decisions will be necessary concerning the most appropriate stationary source test methodologies for continuing our efforts to clean up the atmosphere. In many regions of the United States, existing methods to measure stationary source pollutant emissions may be acceptable for the foreseeable future. However, other regions will require more comprehensive source measurement methods that expand the measured pollutants to include the full range of the atmospheric burden. Decisions about which path(s) to follow will depend on existing ambient air quality levels an the need to better quantify atmospheric emissions of primary PM from stationary sources, control stationary source primary PM to achieve the ambient air quality standard, and better understand the components of stationary source primary PM emissions. This article focuses on quantifying fine PM emissions from stationary sources, including Method 5B for utility plants. 24 refs., 1 tab.
