Baghouse Dust Collector emissions

Power plants and other industrial companies have to meet "opacity" standards for any particulate released by their baghouse dust collector stacks as well as other processes. They also have to to report when these emissions are made accidentally.

This link talks about a couple of these incidents that happened recently in the Houston, Texas area. These are from companies who voluntarily comply with EPA regulations. It's anyones guess about the companies who dont.

New baghouses and dust collectors have monitoring equipment in the stack which monitors the condition of emissions leaving the plant.
