Abstract

PCDD and PCDF were measured in several points inside a modern municipal solid waste incinerator. In fly ash the concentrations of these micropollutants increased during cooling of the flue gas, corresponding to a trend already reported for other plants, while in the vapour phase they decreased. This finding is discussed in relation to the incinerator characteristics.
