Concern about ammonia emissions in the air and the water continues to grow, both officially and unofficially. As U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) moves to further reduce ammonia concentrations in surface waters, common water treatment methods transform what had been a water pollution problem into an air pollution issue.

Earlier this year, EPA released its draft Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) health assessment for ammonia. The assessment for ammonia represents major progress for EPA in implementing the April 2011 National Academy of Sciences (NAS) recommendations for improving IRIS assessments.

It also represents the Clean Air Act, which requires EPA to set National Ambient Air Quality Standards for pollutants considered harmful to public health and the environment.

Companies that manufacture fertilizers, pharmaceuticals, fossil fuels, or household cleaners are most at risk to EPA penalties and fines is PM2.5 is found in your plant.

In this white paper we'll examine the issue of ammonia control: Why it's important and cost-effective methods for reducing ammonia emissions.
