General Control Strategies for Developing Programs for All Sources of Air Pollution

A control strategy is a group of specific techniques, when implemented, which will achieve a reduction in air pollutants. The control measure involves identifying abatement requirements, Best Practices and control technologies that will meet the goal of reducing the pollutants.

  • • Determine the nature of the problem including: the ambient air quality including the type, concentration, and nature of air toxics; the characteristics of the gas stream and control system and whether they could be sources of contamination; and the economic factors such as capital cost, operating cost, and equipment maintenance.
  • • Determine if substituting less toxic raw materials and using alternative manufacturing processes can reduce the potential air pollutants as well as the cost of the product.
  • • Determine which controls are necessary for major stationary sources, mobile sources, and area sources to make the program successful, and how to implement them.
  • • Use all of the control measures available in the program including those required by regulatory programs into the plan and make sure they are enforceable.
  • • Involve the various groups of stakeholders in the entire planning process to obtain their support for the project.
  • • Determine what resources are available at the local, state, and federal level to help with the control strategies being proposed.
  • • Ensure that the media are part of the entire process and will support the various changes needed in order to make the program successful.
