Condensable Particulate Matter (CPM) can represent a significant portion of ParticulateMatter (PM) emissions from a heated exhaust. Since CPM can readily convert tosubmicron particles in the atmosphere under low temperature, CPM analysis can be amajor component of the analysis of PM-2.5 emissions (such as Best Available ControlTechnology analysis) in the near future. While representing a client and at the request ofa state agency, Trinity performaed a Best Available Control Technology (BACT) analysisfor CPM emissions. Currently, information is limited on CPM emissions andperformance of potential CPM control technologies. This research elaborates thechallenges in developing BACT analysis for CPM and presents a detailed review ofliterature available to industry and consultants.
