The report gives results of a test program measuring air and water emissions from a high-efficiency hot-water residential heating system of European design, utilizing a condensing flue gas system and a low emission burner. Criteria and noncriteria emissions, including trace elements and organic species in both flue gas and condensate waste water streams, were measured. NO (as NO2), CO, total UHC (as propane), and total particulate emissions measured about 37, 12, 1.5, and 2.7 ng/J heat input, respectively. Adsorption of sulfates and nitrates in the waste water resulted in a constant pH of 3.0. Total organic emissions in the flue gas measured 3.5 mg/dscm; they were below the detectable limit in the waste water. Several inorganic trace elements, including chromium, copper, iron, and nickel, in the waste water were attributed to leaching of heat transfer metal surfaces by the warm acidic water. Bioassays were also performed to evaluate the potential health hazard of the streams. Results indicate nondetectable to moderate toxicity and mutagenicity.
