Abstract

PCDD, PCDF, PCB, PCN, PCT and PAH concentrations were determined in different points inside a fluid-bed pilot plant, from the furnace to the stack. The behavior of most of these micropollutants was similar. There was a general drop of levels in the post-combustor, followed by an increase during cooling, and a second fall in the abatement system. The concentrations of the different micropollutants in the various sampling points were correlated with PCDD concentrations.
