Summary

The control of emissions from glass production, formerly considered to be concerned only with solid-particulate control, has been extended by “particulate” regulation. opacity, system corrosion, and reliability to incorporate SO3 control. Present requirements for boron and fluoride control in fiber glass applications and future SO2 regulations must also be considered. Four alternative procedures are compared from the aspects of emission reduction, reliability, and economics for achievement of particulate, SO3 HF, and H3BO3 reduction, and for adaptability to future SO2 regulations.
