Polyvinyl Chloride Plastics in Municipal Solid Waste Combustion

Polyvinyl Chloride Plastics in Municipal Solid Waste Combustion

IImpact Upon Dioxin Emissions : A Synthesis of Views

Website or Online Data - 1993
Rate this:
This report examines the issue of whether the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastics content of municipal solid waste (MSW) is a significant contributor to emissions of chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (dioxins) that are associated with MSW combustion. Indications based on a consideration of this issue are developed through a synthesis of available information. While there is convincing experimental evidence that various conditions can cause production of dioxins when PVC is thermally treated, a fundamental issue that remains to be solved is how these findings relate to operating conditions that are characteristic of well designed, maintained and operated MSW combustion facilities, equipped with modern air pollution controls. These findings largely have been derived from laboratory or pilot scale experimentation and from full-scale studies that have carried out at facilities of varying design and purpose.
