EPA designates Fogging Systemsas Best Demonstrated Technology(BDT) for PRB, sub bituminous & lignite coal at Coal Preparation & Processing Plants!
On September 25, 2009 the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) revised emissions control requirements for new coal preparation plants. These revisions were based on a variety of input and comments from those directly involved in the coal industry, including coal mines, power plants, consultants, engineering firms and suppliers of air pollution control systems.
The EPA findings have created new rules that they published in the Federal Registers on October 8, 2009. The new rules designate "Fogging Systems" as a Best Demonstrated Technology (BDT) for coal handing equipment used on sub bituminous and lignite coals.
BDT as identified by the EPA, is the most effective commercially available means of treating specific types of hazardous waste. Public testimony given to the EPA on fogging systems has revealed what we at DSI has been saying for many years, that Dry Fog can be the most cost effective dust control system available, yielding results as good or better than any other control measure.
