The formation of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins/dibenzofurans from carbon model mixtures containing ferrous chloride.


The potential to form polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins/furans (PCDD/F) was investigated in carbon model systems containing ferrous chloride tetrahydrate and a matrix representative of that found in particle emission from the catalytic extraction process (CEP) for wastes. Various types of carbons were used resulting in different PCDD/F yields but, with one… (More)
