The paper discusses emissions of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) as products of incomplete combustion from incinerators. PCBs were used widely as industrial chemicals, particularly as additives in electrical transformer cooling oil. PCBs are still being released into the environment as an unwanted by-product of combustion processes, particularly those associated with chlorinated materials. A subset of PCBs, coplanar isomers, exhibit biological activity similar to that of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDDs/PCDFs), a widely recognized byproduct of combustion processes. The paper presents background information on some of the combustion sources that generate PCBs.
