Abstract

Literature data on PCDD and PCDF emissions in stack gas from municipal solid waste incinerators were analysed and are discussed in relation to the combustion temperature and the particulate/condensate distribution. Principal component analysis allows the definition of the fingerprints of PCDD and PCDF in stack gas. The analysis of correlations between the percentage distributions of dioxin or furan congeners suggests a possible reaction mechanism. A linear correlation between PCDF and PCDD total concentrations has been made evident. The role of MSW as a source of dioxins and furans in these emissions is discussed. © 1989.
