The paper discusses emissions of polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from the open burning of household waste in barrels. Using a waste mixture designed to simulate waste generated by an avid cycler and a non-cycler, the emissions of volatile and semivolatile organic compounds, metals, acid gases, and respirable particulates were measured from a 55-gal. (208-L) burn barrel at EPA's open burning test facility. Total measured PAH emissions ranged from 24 (avid recycler) to 82 mg/kg (non-recycler) of a waste burned. This study provides important data on a potentially significant source of emissions of air toxics.
