Published by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, St. Joseph, Michigan www.asabe.org

ASAE  ASAE S582   March  2005

Keywords: Cotton, Emission

1. Purpose and Scope

1.1 The purpose of the procedures and data included in this standard is to aid permit and consulting engineers in calculating various air pollution parameters, such as daily and seasonal TSP and PM10 emission rates. Consultants representing cotton gins should utilize the presented calculation methods as a basis in preparing air pollution permit applications for their customers. Further, these procedures should be utilized by consultants when responding to notice of violations, recommending modifications to existing ambient air pollution control systems, or designing and developing new air pollution abatement systems in order to comply with SAPRA regulations. Regulators should use the data and procedures when reviewing permits or investigating complaints against a permitted facility.

1.2 This Standard establishes preferred terminology for use in air pollution engineering and defines terms that may not have air pollution related definitions in a desktop dictionary.
