In many commercial incineration facilities, history or 'memory effects' play an important role in the formation of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzo furans (PCDFs). This study aims to explain wide variations in PCDD and PCDF formation from tests performed under similar conditions but in facilities subjected to different surface deposits. Specifically, the effect of soot and copper deposits on subsequent PCDD and PCDF formation is evaluated. The role of chlorine concentration is also evaluated.
