Summary

In spite of all of the environmental issues that the ceramic industry faces, it would appear that NOx is not or should not be a major issue. A major stationary source is defined as one that produces in one year's time frame greater than 250 tons of NOx The ceramic industry is at 100 tons/year of NOx The criteria pollutants that the EPA measures for are NO2, carbon monoxide, SO2, total suspended particles (TSP), and volatile organic compounds (VOC). The biggest concern to the ceramics industry is NO2, emissions.
