In this project, air emission tests were conducted on seven boilers in the size range 0.4 to 15 x 10 to the 6th power Btu/hr while these boilers were firing waste oil. The main purpose of the project was to document the extent to which chemical contaminants in waste oil are destroyed during the combustion process. These data are of interest because one of the more common and widespread practices for disposing of waste oils is burning as a supplemental fuel. Chemicals which were spiked into the waste oil before combustion included: chloroform, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, trichloroethylene, tetrachloroethylene, trichlorobenzene, 1-chloronaphthalene, 2,4,5-trichlorophenol, chlorotoluene.
