Title: The significance of fugitive emissions in the Title V operating permit program for the Portland cement industry

Fugitive emissions must be considered by Portland cement plants in the determination of status as a major source under Title V of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. Once a facility has been determined to be major, fugitive emission sources must be included in the operating permit application. Emission inventories conducted by SCI-TECH, INC. at cement plants have shown that the overall particulate emissions from fugitive sources can be significantly greater than the overall particulate emissions from point sources. Since application fees, emissions trading and offset programs, and other portions of the Act relate directly to emission levels, it is important that the cement industry understand the need for an accurate emission inventory of fugitive emissions sources. This paper presents information on how to develop such an inventory.
