Compliance Army – Envir. Technology Program FY 2002 – Particulate Matter-Dust Control (TPD0200004)



Particulate Matter/Dust Control





Army training activities produce particulate matter (PM) that may exceed air quality standards resulting in fines and the reduction/shutdown of military training missions. Since emission characteristics and atmospheric behavior of PM emissions from non-facility sources are not well understood, the Army is at a disadvantage when negotiating with regulators. Standard PM control technologies are ineffective and

costly. Measurement technologies are too expensive and not appropriate for training mission. Fugitive dust from military maneuvers, tactical vehicle emissions, prescribed burning, and obscurant training is impacted.


  • Source characterization and
  • PM mitigation
  • PM measurement
  • Receptor modeling of Army PM

How this project responds to need:

Particulate matter models and measurement technologies meet the primary focus areas of the Army Environmental Requirements and Technology Assessment requirement 2.1.b, with secondary emphasis on dust control technologies.


Annual Milestones/Performance Objectives for FY02:

  • Determine short-term performance of innovative chemical dust palliatives applied to unpaved roads
  • In FY02, completed draft technology verification reports detailing the short-term performance of palliatives applied to unsurfaced roads at Fort Leonard Wood, to ascertain potential environmental effects from palliative application
  • By FY03, develop source characterization technologies and chemical/physical PM mitigation


  • By FY04, develop opacity monitoring technology and receptor modeling methods
  • By FY05, develop biological PM mitigation technologies and PM concentration measurement technologies
  • By FY06, complete regional scale atmospheric models

Annual Performance Review:


Met all performance objectives for FY02.
