The report summarizes the results of a dioxin/furan emissions test of a black liquor recovery boiler equipped with a dry-bottom electrostatic precipitator for particulate emissions control. Black liquor recovery boilers are used at Kraft pulp mills to produce process steam and to reclaim inorganic chemicals from spentwood pulping liquors. The test is the fifth 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 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 that have been tested in the Tier 4 program. After an initial information screening and one-day presurvey visit, this site (BLB-B) was selected partially because of the higher chloride content of the black liquor (3.5 wt.% dry) compared to other black liquor recovery boiler sites surveyed in the Tier 4 study (approx. 0.2 to 1.0 wt%, dry). 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.
