         The production, processing, and use of various minerals are characterized by particulate emissions in
the form of dust. Frequently, as in the case of crushing and screening, this dust is identical in composition to
the material being handled. Emissions occur also from handling and storing the finished product because this
material is often dry and fine. Particulate emissions from some of the processes such as quarrying, yard
storage, and dust from transport are difficult to control, but most can be reduced by conventional particulate
control equipment such as cyclones, scrubbers, and fabric filters. Because of the wide variety in processing
equipment and final products, emission levels will range widely.
