Measurements conducted on full-scale hazardous waste incinerators have occasionally shown a relationship between carbon monoxide (CO) emissions and emissions of toxic organic compounds. In the study, four mixtures of chlorinated methane (C1) and ethane (C2) hydrocarbons were diluted in commercial-grade heptane and burned in a water-cooled Turbulent Flame Reactor under two different excess air levels. No correlation between CO and organic emissions could be discerned. Reasons for this lack of observable correlations are discussed in terms of combustion and chemical reaction kinetic theory.
