What will you do to control dust and other emissions?

Rawson will meet or exceed all applicable requirements related to obtaining and maintaining their air permits. Quality air permits generally require processing plants to utilize best available control technologies (BACT) to control dust and other emissions. The use of BACT, helps to ensure that dust and other emissions from the processing plant will be protective of public health, welfare, property and the environment. Currently, Rawson continuously runs a water truck during hours of operation at each of its locations unless it is raining. In addition to the water truck, Rawson locations use anti-tracking pads to reduce the amount dust being taken off the property by vehicle traffic.  Additionally, much of the plant equipment is equipped with dust suppression apparatus (fog/spray nozzles).
