Estimate the hourly emissions - source emission factors, Chemical Engineering

A contaminated soil contains 100 mg metals/kg soil (all metals are readily condensable), 50,000 mg S/kg soil, 1,000 mg F/kg soil, 980 mg/Kg of VOCs and 40,000 mg Cl/kg soil and is to be decontaminated by using incineration.  The incinerator is operated at a heat loading of 63 MM Kilojoules/hour and has an estimated stack gas flow of 986 m3/minute.  The rate of feeding the soil into the incinerator will be 3,400 g/hour.  Using the EPA uncontrolled source emission factors given below, estimate the hourly emissions that would be expected in the flue gas of this incinerator if no air pollution control equipment were used (show all your calculations).

If pollution control equipment is installed to remove 95.5% of the PM and 99.96% of the VOC emissions, what would be the new hourly emissions in the flue gas?  Support your results with all assumptions that you must make.
