- During the development of the December 19, 1995 United States Environmental Protection Agency`s (EPA) Emission Guidelines for Municipal Waste Combustors, much consideration was given to electrostatic precipitator (ESP) equipped facilities. The cost for replacement of well performing ESPs is prohibitive, especially if the facility is already equipped with spray dryer absorber (SDA). EPA proposed and promulgated Emission Guidelines which were designed to allow facilities with modern well performing ESPs to comply without replacement of existing equipment. The Essex County Resource Recovery Facility is one example of a facility equipped with a modern, well performing SDA/ESP combination. Due to actions taken by the State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the Essex County Facility has already been retrofitted and is in a position to comply with the December, 1995, Emission Guidelines. This paper provides further discussion of the actions taken to retrofit the Essex County Facility and presents limited resultant emission data.
