The exposure in a nearby population to volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from emissions of a municipal hazardous waste incinerator is determined by measuring the emission rates and estimating the dispersion of those pollutants over the surrounding community. Measurements of fugitive VOC emissions from leaky pipe fittings, flanges, pumps, and valves are made. VOC emissions from the stack and air pollution control devices are also measured. An emission assessment is then performed to determine the percentage concentration and population exposure associated with selected emissions from each source at the facility. Results indicate that, in this particular case, fugitive and stack emissions do not contribute significantly to pollutant concentration and population exposure. Further, data for specific constituents of the VOC emissions also show extremely low concentrations and exposure, but these results are based on only a partial analysis and additional qualitative emission analyses are required. 8 references, 2 figures, 4 tables.
