2The Daily Tar Heel Wednesday. April 4, 1984 EPA plans ways to reduce acid rain causes Senate stops Kennedy bill By DKNMS DOWDY Staff V rilcr Coal-burning power plants may soon be using a new pollution control system developed by the Environmen tal Protection Agency that reduces the amount of sulfur oxide and other gases thought to cause acid rain by 70 percent and is less expensive than other removal systems, said Debby Janes, a public affairs spokeswoman for the EPA branch in the Research Triangle Park. The Limestone Injection-Multistaged Burner (LIMB) program is the result of a series of studies on sulfur oxide and other gases suspected to contribute greatly to the formation of acid rain, she said. The gases are released in huge quantities from older coal-burning plants. The system is a much sought-after solution to the older plants' pollution problems, Janes said. "In this system, the coal burner in the plant goes through a series of staged combustions, which make the coal burn more completely and release fewer gases. Then the limestone is injected into the process. The burner's heat changes the limestone into lime, which absorbs the refuse gases." Other removal systems also utilize limestone as well, although these devices, called scrubbers, can remove gases only from the plants' exhaust, she said. One of the greatest advantages of using the LIMP system is cost savings. "Scrubbers are usually expensive for old coal-burning plants, because they have to rearrange everything. However, the LIMB program can be added to their burners for a much smaller cost," Janes said. The operating costs of the LIMB system is up to 80 percent less expensive than scrubbers, she said. The EPA will receive about $10 million in funding for the development of the LIMB system and other acid rain studies in its laboratories nationwide. Many industries have contested earlier EPA research about acid rain, and the Reagan administration has called for more studies on acid rain and its effects. One of the studies involves tracing sulfur oxide and other gases from plants to see how far they travel and if they react with other gases to form acid rain, said Fran cis Pooler, one of the scientists working on this study. One tracer experiment was conducted last September. "We injected an inert gas into the refuse of a plant in the Eastern Midwest and took samples of the air to see how far the gas had spread. The study revealed that the gas traveled about 1 ,000 kilometers, the equivalent of about 600 miles," Pooler said. Many other factors could have played a part in the results of the study, such as waste from other plants mingling with the traced gas, he said. The EPA plans to make other tracing studies and lake chemical measurements of emissions to see if sulfur oxide combines with other gases in the air, he said. "Right now we're in the stepping stone process of the studies," Pooler said. "We have to get definite answers to the what, when and why questions before we can come up with solutions." One part of the EPA study of acid rain that seems to be getting less attention is the study of how sulfur oxide deposits that fall to ground react with the soil, said Thomas Ellestead, a scientist in the Aerosol Research Branch of the EPA. "The trouble with studying the controls and effects of dry deposition is that it is hard to detect. Original studies that attempted to measure the deposits were totally meaningless," he said. The current system for measuring dry deposits is more efficient and can take measurements for 1-7 day periods at a time, said Ellestead. The measuring device is composed of several tubes of non reactive Teflon that extract gases from downdrafts. Although the study is complicated, it is greatly need ed, he said. "Some people say that the amount of dry deposition is up to seven times more than wet (such as gases). Cur rently, we are studying the most important pollutants, such as sulfur oxide and others, to assess the problem, then learn to control it."

The proposed amendment by Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., was rejected 69-24, his second defeat in two days on the issue of Salvadoran aid. On Monday, the Senate rejected 63-25 his bid to slash the aid to $21 million. Sen. Robert Kasten, R-Wis., chair man of the appropriations subcom mittee that oversees foreign aid, said, "Any effort to withhold aid today is simply a vote against the level that we have a greed to." Smith to remain WASHINGTON William French Smith will continue to serve as attorney general until a successor is News In Brief confirmed, White House spokesman Larry Speakes said Tuesday. President Reagan had asked Smith to stay on as attorney general during Senate confirmation hearings for White House counselor Edwin Meese III, whom Reagan has nominated to replace Smith. Smith has been anxious to return to his California law prac tice, as well as to take an active role in the president's re-election campaign. " Death sentences studied A white man who kills another white man is more likely to get a death sentence than a black man who kills another black man, according to re cent studies of death sentences in North Carolina. Samuel Gross, a Stanford Universi ty law professor, says his research in dicates the victim's race has more to do with capital sentences than the race of the murderer. For the record In Tuesday's edition of the DTH, we incorrectly reported that Greg Hecht sug gested to the CGC Finance Committee that they may have overallocated some campus organizations which received, funding earlier in the year. Hecht did not , make the statement. The DTH regrets the error.
