The report gives results of a comprehensive emission sampling and analysis of the EPA-sponsored, Exxon Miniplant, pressurized, coal-fired, fluidized-bed combustor (PFBC) and sorbent regeneration system. Air pollutant emissions of seven trace elements exceeded emissions goals in the PFBC flue gas, indicating a need for further study. Air pollutant emissions of total organics were less than for comparable conventional combustion systems. Limited further analyses for specific polynuclear aromatic compounds indicated that emissions of one of these compounds exceeded its emissions goal. Laboratory-generated leachates from solid waste samples resulted in trace metal concentrations well below Federal hazardous waste criteria. Positive test results for mutagenicity and cytotoxicity screening tests on flue gas samples require further study.
