The temporal variations of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) in 33 agricultural soil samples in the vicinity of a municipal solid waste incinerator (MSWI) in Eastern China were determined one year after the initial investigation in 2006. The soil PCDD/F concentrations in 2007 ranged from 73.6 to 377 ng kg(-1) (0.60-6.38 ng I-TEQ(More)
Fly ash from municipal solid waste (MSW), medical waste (MW) and electrical power plant (EPP) incinerators were analyzed for polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs). The study showed that the PCDD/F levels in fly ash were EPP<MSW<MW. The homologue profiles of PCDD/Fs in fly ash produced from waste incinerators were similar. However,(More)
Ambient air monitoring of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) was performed to investigate their concentrations, profiles, and sources near a municipal solid waste incinerator (MSWI) in Eastern China. The PCDD/F concentrations varied over a factor of 51.4 from 0.059 to 3.03 pg I-TEQ m(-3) (or over 41.4 from 3.96 to 164 pg m(-3))(More)
The levels and homologue profile of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) from stack gas of three typical fluidized bed incinerators co-firing municipal solid waste (MSW) with Chinese coal were measured. The PCDD/Fs emission was in the range of 0.0054-0.1961 ng I-TEQ/N m(3). Comparison of PCDD/Fs detection results by HRGC/HRMS and(More)
Isomer-specific data were investigated in order to identify the sources of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs) in agricultural soils, including Fluvo-aquic and paddy soils, in the vicinity of a Chinese municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) plant. Homologue and isomer profiles of PCDD/Fs in soils were compared with those of(More)
In 2004, it is estimated that 1.18 kg I-TEQ of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and dibenzofurans (PCDFs) emitted from medical waste incinerators (MWIs) in China, accounting for 11.5% of the total PCDD/Fs emissions. So it is essential to assess the environmental impact of MWIs. A new MWI of China was started operation in May 2007, and implemented(More)
The distribution of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins/dibenzofurans (PCDD/Fs), in brief dioxins, has seldom been addressed systematically in fly ash from municipal solid waste incinerators (MSWIs). This study shows the amount and fingerprint of PCDD/Fs in fly ash from four different Chinese MSWIs, that is, three mechanical grate units and one circulating(More)
Modeling NOx emissions from coal fired utility boiler is critical to develop a predictive emissions monitoring system (PEMS) and to implement combustion optimization software package for low NOx combustion. This paper presents an efficient NOx emissions model based on support vector regression (SVR), and compares its performance with traditional modeling(More)
The HCl emission characteristics of typical municipal solid waste (MSW) components and their mixtures have been investigated in a phi 150 mm fluidized bed. Some influencing factors of HCl emission in MSW fluidized bed incinerator was found in this study. The HCl emission is increasing with the growth of bed temperature, while it is decreasing with the(More)
To find out the detailed characteristics of the coherent structures and associated particle dispersion in free shear flow, large eddy simulation method was adopted to investigate a two-dimensional particle-laden wake flow. The well-known Sub-grid Scale mode introduced by Smagorinsky was employed to simulate the gas flow field and Lagrangian approach was(More)
