Four mixtures of C1 and C2 chlorinated hydrocarbons, diluted in heptane, were burned in a Turbulent Flame Reactor (TFR) under high and low oxygen conditions. Emissions of undestroyed feed, stable organic by-products, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and oxygen were measured and compared with the results of other thermal decomposition and combustion research on similar compounds. The results show that the volatile compounds emitted in the TFR's exhaust could be predicted based on an understanding of both the combustion chemistry of the compounds in question and of the physical environment existing within the combustion device during operation. Soot formation complicates the characterization of volatile organic emissions. (Copyright (c) Pergamon Press 1989.)
