Abstract

The purpose of this study is to establish whether intermediate products, which are remained as unburned components and become the precursors to form the PCDD, can be reduced by improvement of the plant operation. The change of the PCDD levels was analyzed along the stream of the flue gas. Two test programs were conducted to reduce the emission levels of PCDD at municipal solid waste (MSW) incinerators. They were as follows; 1. (1) High temperature incineration to reduce unburned components. 2. (2) Investigation of the relationship between CO contents and PCDD levels at an incinerator which was operated by reductive two-step combustion mode to reduce NOx emission level.
