Title: PISCES field chemical emissions monitoring project: Site 112 emissions report

Abstract

This report is one of a series sponsored by the Electric Power Research Institute in the area of trace substance emissions from fossil-fuel power plants. This report presents the results of a sampling and analytical study to characterize trace substances emissions at Site 112. Site 112 is a tangentially fired boiler firing residual oil. Site 112 employs electrostatic precipitators and a flue gas desulfurization system for particulate and SO{sub 2} control. Sampling at Site 112 was performed in July and August of 1992 for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and mercury. The objective of this report is to transmit the detailed data to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to assist the Agency in evaluating utility trace chemical emissions as well as the associated health risk impacts - as mandated in Title III of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments. This report does not attempt to compare the results with other sites. An assessment of data from all plants that have been tested is presented in the Electric Utility Trace Substances Synthesis Report (EPRI TR-104614).

  • This report is one of a series sponsored by the Electric Power Research Institute in the area of trace substance emissions from fossil-fuel power plants. This report presents the results of a sampling and analytical study to characterize trace substances emissions at Site 12. Site 12 is a large, pulverized coal-fired power plant that burns a medium-sulfur bituminous coal. Site 12 employs electrostatic precipitators and a flue gas desulfurization system for particulate and S02 control. Testing at Site 12 was performed in the summer of 1990, with additional retests in August and December of 1992 for volatile organic compounds (VOCs)more » and mercury, respectively. Sampling and analytical problems during the initial test period necessitated the retests. The objective of this report is to transmit the detailed data to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to assist the Agency in evaluating utility trace chemical emissions as well as the associated health risk impacts-as mandated in Title III of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments.
