Dust Solutions, Inc. (DSI) is a presenter at this year’s Coal Handling & Storage Conference and Exhibition in St. Louis, Missouri.  The annual event takes place on October 5-7, 2015 and brings together coal producers, consumers and service providers in the mid-stream sector and investigates challenges and opportunities surrounding the production, transportation and storage of this critical resource.

Attendees are invited to join our presentation and discussion during the Coal Handling & Storage Track: Stockpile Management. During this session, we will discuss EPA emission control requirements and present technical studies and findings supporting the use of wind barriers as an effective method for fugitive dust control.

Ivanpah solar thermal project uses DustTamer Wind Fences

The Ivanpah solar thermal project, which Bechtel is constructing for BrightSource in the Mojave Desert, will be the largest solar plant in the world when completed in 2013. DSI supplied DustTamer Wind Fence materials for the solar array staging area to prevent damage to the arrays from dust erosion and turn-over of unattached stored units. DustTamer can also be used for the permanent solar field to reduce the effects of dust erosion on reflectors and dust accumulation that can reduce collection efficiency. With DustTamers wind velocity reduction, it may be possible to reduce solar array foundation and/or structural steel requirements and associated cost. Another application for DustTamer material is to reduce the visual impact of the solar field and potential glare from reflectors. Photo courtesy of BrightSource / Power Engineering.

EPA Coal Storage Pile Rules

Affected facilities constructed, reconstructed or modified after May 27, 2009 are required to prepare and operate in accordance with a submitted fugitive coal dust emissions plan. The plan must identify and describe the control measures the owner/operator will use to minimize fugitive coal dust emissions from each open storage pile.

The EPA identified fogging systems and wind barriers as two of the accepted control measures.  DSI DustTamer Wind Fence Systems and Dry Fog Systems can help you comply with these regulations avoiding the use of chemicals. With chemical systems the EPA requires that the user consider in their dust control plan the site-specific impacts associated with the use of chemical dust suppressants (e.g.,water runoff, water quality concerns).
