to specific operating conditions of an incinerator, including temperature at inlet of air-pollution control device, exit-gas temperature, furnace temperature, stack height, stack diameter, flow rate, and temperature of the gases leaving the stack, injection rate of all reagents, local meteorological conditions, air-dispersion coefficients as a function of distance from the facility, and precise geographical location of the emission point (to within 10 meters). When it is appropriate, data should be standardized to 7% oxygen and measurements to units of dry standard cubic meters. All data collected should be easily accessible by the public.
