Documentation for Greenhouse Gas Emission and Energy
construction site. EPA assumed that non-energy process GHG emissions from making asphalt concrete were negligible because no data were available about non-energy emissions, and the majority of the asphalt concrete is aggregate, which has no non-energy emissions associated with its production. Exhibit 1-4: Composition of Hot Mix Asphalt
but a few. Asphalt plant odors are not harmful. A 2001 study2 compared emissions from an asphalt plant to emissions from other common community and industrial sources. The study found that the low annual emissions from an asphalt plant are equivalent or well below many other common sources: Similar volatile organic compound (VOC) emis -
of new asphalt cement is added to produce HMA that meets the required quality specifications. 11.1.2 Emissions And Controls2-3,23 Emissions from HMA plants may be divided into ducted production emissions, pre-production fugitive dust emissions, and other production-related fugitive emissions. Pre-production fugitive dust
Atmospheric Emissions from the Asphalt Industry - EPA
The most significant pollutant from the asphalt plants is particulates. The emission, factors (without controls) are 18 kg/0.91 metric ton (40 lb/short ton) for the hot-mix plants and 4 kg/0.91 (2 metric ton (8 Ib/short ton) for the roofing segment. These quantities represent about 0.65 percent of the national total of particulate emissions.

Sep 22, 2017 · The asphalt pavement industry has a long record of working with the environmental regulatory agencies including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) to accurately determine the amount of emissions from an average asphalt plant.
testing of THC emissions by EPA Method 25A. PES was responsible for testing of particulate emissions, and discussion of this work is not included in this report. 1.2 Project Summary The selected site was a batch asphalt plant located in Massachusetts. Prior to testing at the selected site, a TTE was constructed around the truck load-out area.
associated with a portable source such as a crusher or asphalt plant). "Best available technology (BAT)" means a requirement under Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) rule 3745‐31‐05(A)(3) for all new emissions units meeting the applicability thresholds outlined in the rule. (BAT is defined in OAC rule 3745‐31‐01.
Second Review of New Source Performance Standards for
The uncontrolled particulate emission level from drum-mix plants averages about 2.45 kg per Mg (4.9 Ib per ton) of asphalt concrete produced.47 Production levels, aggregate properties, and gas stream velocity affect particulate emission levels from drum-mix plants in the same way they affect those from batch plants.47 As measured by EPA
EPA recommends further study of proposed Genesee Township
Sep 17, 2021 · "The neighborhood around the proposed asphalt plant has some of the highest levels in the State of Michigan for many pollution indicators used by EPA's environmental justice screening tool
mobile asphalt plants were audited as part of this compliance audit program. It should be noted that a mobile asphalt plant providing product for a construction site and located on or adjacent to that site for a period of more than 12 months is no longer considered to be mobile or temporary as defined by the POEO legislation. Such plants will
health effects of asphalt plant emissions. We must heed these early warning signs and take action to prevent communities from further exposure to cancer-causing substances released by asphalt plants. The following actions are needed: Moratoriums on asphalt plant construction and operation in communities where people live and go to school;

Hot Mix Asphalt Plant Air Emissions Inventory Guidance
The default emission factors for calculating hot mix asphalt plant air emission sources are taken from four sections of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) reference document, Compilation of Air Pollutant Emission Factors, Volume I: Stationary Point and Area Sources, AP-42, 1/95 version. These four sections are 11.1
