This paper presents air toxics emissions test results from a pilot-scale cofiring study of pentachlorophenol(PCP) and creosote-treated woods to provide data for pre-permitting requirements for utilities interested in biomass cofiring as a means of increasing renewable energy while reducing greenhouse gases and other emissions for pulverized coal-fired utility boilers. These PCP/creosote-treated wood cofiring tests included a comprehensive assessment of air toxics, including dioxins, furans… CONTINUE READING
