Best Available Control Technology (BACT ) Guideline 2.1.7
Last Update: 8/24/1998


Soil Remediation Operation - Thermal Soil Desorber
Pollutant Achieved in Practice or in the SIP Technologically Feasible Alternate Basic Equipment
NOxLow NOx burner and natural gas/LPG firing
PM10Fabric filter serving desorber exhaust (99% control efficiency) and Soil covered or adequate moisture content such that visible emissions are less than 5% (90% control efficiency).
VOCThermal or catalytic oxidation (95% 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.
