In Taiwan, both stationary and mobile sources contribute to air emissions dominantly. In 2000, there were approximately 70% of non-methane hydrocarbon (NMHC) by stationary sources and 30% of non-methane hydrocarbon by mobile sources emissions. Taiwan EPA has conducted a control plan for the abatement of source emissions. All dominant source categories are included in the plan. The control measures for stationary source were discussed. Stationary sources control measures were grouped into four subcategories, i.e., management for primary metal production, coating and solvents, petrochemistry industry, and fugitive source. This project drew fourteen emission abatement measures for stationary source in Taiwan. These include both 11 short-term and 13 long-term control measures, which contain 25 and 37% NMHC emission from stationary source. The control plan showed a progressive trend to reduce the air pollution emissions from stationary sources in Taiwan air basin. The equivalent emission abatement of NMHC from these stationary source measures was ≈ 48,900 ton/yr for short-term and 107,400 ton/yr for long-term control mesures. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 98th AWMA Annual Conference and Exhibition (Minneapolis, MN 6/21-24/2005).
