|Ammonia||H2S||Odor||Dust & Particulates||VOC||GHG||Cost|
H2S = Hydrogen Sulfide; VOC = Volatile Organic Compounds; GHG = Greenhouse Gases
red - low impact; yellow - medium impact; green - high impact; blank - insufficient data
The table is laid out as a score card. Each technology within the tool is laid out on the vertical axis on the left. The pollutants are laid out on the horizontal axis at the top. A green color indicates a particular technology has a high impact on that particular pollutant. Likewise, yellow and red indicate medium and low impact respectively. As an example, if a person were concerned about a potential odor problem from animal housing, you would scan down the list under the “odor” column at the top. You would find that “Siting”, “Scrubbers” and “Biofilters” have green bars, meaning they have high impact on odors. You could then investigate them further or check out some of the yellow bars that have a medium impact. Consequently red bars, would have low impact or would not be suitable for addressing that pollutant.
