Contents Notes
"This report describes the methods and results of a study, conducted in support of EPA's data gathering activities under the ANPR, of the potential for formation of polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) from uncontrolled fires involving PCB-containing dielectric fluids. The following two sections present a summary of the study and recommendations for further study, respectively. Section IV presents a brief literature review of PCDF and PCDD formation from PCBs. Sections V and VI describe the experimental plan and methods. The results of the study are presented and discussed in Section VII."--Leaf 1
