1.3 Fuel Oil Combustion220.127.116.11 Nitrogen Oxides Emissions1-2,6-10,15,17-27 - . Oxides of nitrogen (NOx) formed in combustion processes are due either to thermal fixation of atmospheric nitrogen in the combustion air ("thermal NOx"), or to the conversion of chemically bound nitrogen in the fuel ("fuel NOx").The term NOx refers to the composite of nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen1.3 Fuel Oil Combustion - US EPA1.3-2 EMISSION FACTORS 9/98 1.3.3 Emissions 5 Emissions from fuel oil combustion depend on the grade and composition of the fuel, the type and size of the boiler, the firing and loading practices used, and the level of equipment maintenance.

EMISSION FACTOR DOCUMENTATION FOR AP-42 SECTION 1.3, FUEL local air pollution control programs, industry, as well as the Agency itself. Section 1.3 in AP-42, the subject of this Emission Factor Documentation (EFD) report, pertains to fuel oil combustion in stationary, external equipment. The prior revisions of AP-42 Section 1.3 focused primarily on the criteria pollutants, together with particle sizing.R C /INSTITUTIONAL FUEL OIL AND EROSENE D - US EPAcommercial combustion sources (Figure 1.3-6 in AP-42).

United States Environmental Protection Agency General The equipment and operation of fuel oil and natural gas boilers are described in AP 42, Fifth Edition, Volume I, Chapter 1: External Combustion Sources.1 Information on fuel oil boilers and natural gas boilers is covered in Chapters 1.3 and 1.4, respectively.Atmospheric Emissions From Fuel Oil Combustion: an ----- FROM FUEL OIL COMBUSTION The fuel oils used in small installations (smaller than 1,000 hp, or 34, 500-lb steam/hr, or 2, 500-lb oil/hr) are generally kerosene, diesel fuel, and grades 1 through 6 fuel oils. The kind of fuel oil used depends upon the size of the unit. The most common fuel for domestic units is grade 2.
