Best Available Control Technology (BACT ) Guideline 2.1.1
Last Update: 3/17/1997

Soil Remediation Operation - Thermal Oxidizer
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
NOx1. Natural gas with low NOx burner 2. Water injection (valid only for vapor generation units)Carbon adsorption - as an alternative for VOC control (not valid for vapor generation units)
VOCThermal Oxidizer @ 1400 F and 0.5 sec OR Catalytic Oxidizer @ 600 F and 0.5 sec both at 95% or greater control efficiency

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.
