Solid Processing

The product of synthetic organic processes can be in solid, liquid, or gas form. Emissions of solid particulates are also of concern. One reason is that particulate emissions occur with drying, packaging, and formulation operations. Additionally, these emissions can be in the respirable size range. Within this range, a significant fraction of the par-ticulates can be inhaled directly into the lungs, thereby enhancing the likelihood of being absorbed into the body and damaging lung tissues.
