Current NAAQS limit emissions of sulfur oxides. In some areas, burning tires alone emits more SOx than allowed by permit. The alternative is to either mix the tire chips with a low sulfur fuel and/ or to install costly pollution controls, such as flue gas desulphurization equipment. Continuous emissions monitoring provides a record of emissions in real time. Plant operators can adjust the conveyor speed and fuel mix to minimize exceedances. 5, Haze, Landfill, Recycling, Carcinogen, Pulmonary diseases, Regional Haze Program, RIO Plus 20, Road ecology, Aquaponics, The Dune Trilogy, Appalachia, CO Monitors, Gypsum, Sorbents, Electrostatic precipitators, Dust cyclones, Bag house, Thermal oxidizers, Particulate scrubbers, Catalytic reduction, Vapor recovery systems, Abatement, Flue-gas desulphurization, Continuous emissions monitoring systems, Carbon capture, Coal gasification, “Clean coal” technology, Octane, Greenhouse gas, Marcellus shale, Barnett shale, Mitchell Energy, Fracking, Landfill gas, Coal gasification, Flares, Refinery, Keystone Pipeline, Trans-Alaskan Pipeline, North Slope, Valdez, Sulfur, SOx, NOx, Peak oil, British Thermal Unit (BTU), Igor Sikorsky, Hoppers, Avgas, Diesel fuel Toxic Substances Control Act, National Emissions Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants, (NESHAP), Leachate Vulcanization, Rubber, Permit to emit, Title V, West Nile Virus, Malaria, Yellow fever, Disease vectors.
