The report summarizes the results of a dioxin/furan emissions test of a black liquor recovery boiler equipped with a wet-bottom electrostatic precipitator for particulate matter emissions control. Black liquor recovery boilers are used at kraft pulp mills to produce process steam and to reclaim inorganic chemicals from spent wood pulping liquors. The test is the forth in a series of several dioxin/furan emissions tests being 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 and/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. Black liquor recovery boilers are one of 8 combustion source categories tested in the Tier 4 program. The test black liquor boiler, hereafter referred to as boiler BLB-A, was selected for the test after an initial information screening and a one-day pretest survey visit. Data presented in the report include dioxin (tetra through octa homologue + 2378 TCDD) and furan (tetra through octa homologue + 2378 TCDF) results for stack samples. In addition, process data collected during sampling are also presented.
