Abstract

Abstract The levels of concentration of polynuclear aromatic compounds (PACs) in the stack gases from a municipal incineration plant were determined on eight occasions during a period of 1 week. Low levels of emitted PAC were recorded during days of normal operation, in contrast to the day when cold start-up of the plant occurred, the PAC levels being consequently increased by more than a 1000-fold. Air particulate PAC levels in an adjacent suburb were monitored, both simultaneously and over an extended period of time.
