The Environmental Protection Agency is assessing the potential for the emissions of dioxin/furans from combustion sources under Tier 4 of the National Dioxin Study. If any of the combustion sources are found to emit dioxins, the secondary purpose of the Tier 4 study is to quantify these emissions and, if possible, related the emissions to combustion parameters. Carbon regeneration furnaces are 1 of 8 source categories that have been included in the field test program. Carbon regeneration furnaces reactive spent carbon from industrial or municipal water treatment facilities. The spent carbon may contain absorbed chlorinated compounds. The report presents the results of an emission test program conducted by Radian during May 28-31, 1985, at an industrial carbon regeneration furnace designated as Site CRF-A. The furnace was selected after an initial information screening and a pretest survey visit. The facility is considered representative of other carbon regeneration furnaces in the United States. Furnace CRF-A regenerates spent carbon from more than 20 plants that use activated carbon for industrial wastewater treatment. Data presented in the report include dioxin (tetra through octa homologue +2378 TCDF) 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.
