Stack gas samples from two incinerator facilities with different operating conditions were investigated to understand how indicators of toxic equivalency (TEQ) from among the 210 polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin/furan (PCDD/F) isomers varied. This effort was motivated by the need to find more easily monitored indicator compound(s) of TEQ and to reconcile the varying indicator compounds reported in the literature. The measured isomer patterns were compared with those expected from known… CONTINUE READING
