Blood Drying Operation
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
H2SIf a thermal oxidizer is used and the oxidization of H2S results in more than 2.0 lb/day of SOx emissions, then the use of a wet scrubber for H2S removal prior to the thermal oxidizer is considered feasible. (environmentally beneficial option)
NH30.6 lb-NH3/ton of dried blood (Venturi Scrubber vented to Packed Bed Scrubber, thermal oxidizer, or equal)If a thermal oxidizer is used and the oxidation of NH3 results in more than 2.0 lb/day of NOx emissions, then the use of a wet scrubber for NH3 removal prior to the thermal oxidizer is considered feasible. (environmentally beneficial option)
PM101.15 lb-PM10/ton of dried blood0.579 lb-PM10/ton of dried blood
VOC90% Overall Capture and Control Efficiency (Incineration at 1,200 F for not less than 0.3 seconds, or equal)95% Overall capture and Control Efficiency (Incineration at 1,600 F for not less than 0.5 seconds, or equal)


BACT is the most stringent control technique for the emissions unit and class of source. Control techniques that are not achieved in practice or contained in s a state implementation plan must be cost effective as well as feasible. Economic analysis to demonstrate cost effectiveness is requried for all determinations that are not achieved in practice or contained in an EPA approved State Implementation Plan.

This is a Summary Page for this Class of Source. For background information, see Permit Specific BACT Determinations on Details Page.
