The report summarizes the results of a dioxin/furan emissions test of a secondary copper recovery cupola furnace equipped with an afterburner for hydrocarbon emissions control and two baghouses for particulate emissions control. The cupola furnace is used for recovery of copper from telephone scrap and other copper-bearing materials. The test was the 10 in a series of dioxin/furan emissions tests conducted under Tier 4 of the National Dioxin Study. The primary objective of Tier 4 is to determine if various combustion sources are sources of dioxin/or furan emissions. If any of the combustion sources are found to emit dioxin or furan, the secondary objective of Tier 4 is to quantify these emissions. Secondary copper recovery cupola furnaces are one of 8 combustion source categories that have been tested in the Tier 4 program. The tested cupola furnace, hereafter referred to as cupola furnace MET-A, was selected for the test after an initial information screening and a one-day pretest survey visit. Cupola furnace MET-A is a large secondary copper recovery cupola furnace relative to others in the United States. The furnace feed includes plastic-bearing materials of various types, some of which may contain chlorinated organic compounds. Data presented in the report include dioxin (tera through octa homologue +2378 TCDD) and furan (tetra through octa homologue +2378 TCDF) results for both stack samples and ash samples. In addition, process data collected during sampling are also presented.
