Volume 4B contains a general discussion of environmental pollution control and general plant mechanical engineering: air pollution control(sulfur compounds, nitrogen oxides, particulates, carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon (spills and vapor losses)); emission (at start-up and small vent disposals); solid waste management (ashes, fly ash, sludges, spent catalysts, etc.); liquid effluents (runoff, blowdown, waste water, sanitary wastes); hydrocarbon vapors from tanks (including proceedures for purging and ventilating tanks for safety). This mechanical-engineering work was accomplished by the several Fluor operations: including the engineering of all mechanical equipment, such as compressors, turbines, blowers and pumps; heat exchangers, furnaces, heaters, cooling towers and cooling systems; material handling systems; pressure vessesl and tanks; fire protection systems; and associated metallurgical and welding engineering. Specific areas of involvement included the development of narrative specifications for mechanical engineering systems and equipment, the preliminary design of the coal and ash handling systems for the plant and the general support of all engineering disciplines with regard to mechanical engineering items.
