The content of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) in a Søderberg prebaked aluminum reduction plant and an anode plant was studied. Both stationary and personal sampling were used, and the samples were analyzed by glass capillary gas chromatography. In many samples more than 30 PAH and heterocyclic compounds were identified. Comparison of the results from the different plants revealed that the atmospheric PAH content was significantly higher in the Søderberg plant than in the others. However… CONTINUE READING
