Engineering/Economic Analysis for Cotton Gin Compliance with Air Pollution Regulations

Shobu Yarlagadda, Melanie Gillis, Calvin B. Parnell, Jr., Stephen Fuller, Roy Childers


Due to the implementation of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments (FCAA), cotton gins in Texas will be forced to invest in air pollution control equipment. Only Baseline Best Available Control Technology (BBACT) has been defined by the Air Division of Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC). In this paper, additional abatement strategies were defined. The cost of investing in these controls and the cost per ton of reduction in emission were calculated.
