Study of the inorganic chlorides in municipal solid waste (MSW) shows that the main source of inorganic chlorides in MSW is food. The main organic source of HCl emission from MSW is plastic. But wood, textiles, and food also produce a large amount of HCl when they are combusted. Each combustible shows a different HCl releasing temperature range. At 973 K, there are 30-70% of the total chlorine left in the char of each combustibles in MSW.
