Using 19 samples of fly ash collected from various MSW incineration facilities, residual carbon was characterized by gasifiable fraction at 450 degrees C (C450), and the correlations with de novo synthesis of PCDD/Fs were experimentally examined. Fly ashes were classified into three groups by the ratio of C450 to total residual carbon. By comparison of CO and CO2 generation patterns with those of reference materials, unburnt carbon of solid waste and activated carbon powder injected into flue… CONTINUE READING
