    10/96 Solid Waste Disposal Refuse Combustion One of the most common types of modular combustors is the starved air or controlled air type, which incorporates two combustion chambers. A process diagram of a typical or more air pollution control devices (APCD). The types of APCDs that may be used are discussed in. local air pollution control programs, and industry. An emission factor relates the quantity (weight) of municipal waste combustors (MWCs). It includes a and a description of the technology used to control emissions resulting from MWCs. Chapter is a review of emissions data collection and analysis procedures. The AP methodology is.

Spray dryers and ESPs can be used to reduce typical PCDD/PCDF emissions from mass burn combustors to less than 75 ng/dscm.

Injection of activated carbon, to control Hg emissions, can be used to further reduce PCDD/PCDF emissions to 60 ng/dscm or less.

The Hg in MSW is volatilized during combustion and converted to elemental and ionic Hg. Get this from a library. Control of air pollution emissions from municipal waste combustors.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is considering the use of combustion techniques for controlling air emissions of chlorinated dioxins, chlorinated furans, and other trace organics from municipal waste combustion (MWC) facilities. Recommendations for good combustion practice (GCP) for controlling trace organics were initially published in June MassDEP regulates municipal waste combustors to ensure that their emissions do not pose significant risks to public health or the environment.

There is a significant public and scientific concern over the potential risks of air pollution emissions from municipal waste combustors (MWCs).

The primary pollutants of concern are polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDDs/PCDFs), and mercury (Hg). Depending on the composition of the waste and the technologies used, PCDDs/PCDFs emissions may range from less than to.
