Regulations on dark smoke emission and local available smoke treatment plants for chimneys and exhaust structures were surveyed. Smoke treatment methods were briefly reviewed. Three types of smoke filters, namely aluminium mesh surface panel filters, activated carbon insert induced panel filters and charcoal panel filters were investigated in a laboratory-scale rig. It is found that the effect of the studied smoke treatment plant is satisfactory. The total cost of this plant including metal housing and filters would be cheap.
