Their susceptibility to being blown around if they are out in the open is also a factor. To control fugitive emissions from these sources, it is necessary to conduct all loading, unloading, grinding, and handling operations within enclosures that are reasonably airtight but are also ventilated for the health and safety of employees. Ventilation requires a fresh air intake and a discharge. The discharge requires a treatment process. Candidate treatment processes for this application include bag houses, wet scrubbers, and electrostatic precipitators, possibly in combination with one or more inertial separators.
