Abstract

Abstract PCDD/F are one of the most significant environmental concerns of municipal solid waste disposal through incineration processes. With the main purpose of evaluating their presence along the flue gas line and establishing a mass balance over the whole system, an extensive research study was performed on a full scale plant. Present paper reports the main results obtained, with particular reference to the PCDD/F concentration profiles and mass balance in the post-furnace region, where significant formation of these compounds might take place. PCDD/F mass fluxes evaluated in all the residues arising from the process are also reported.
