The chapter describes available information on the health effects from open burning of rubber tires. It concentrates on the three known sources of detailed measurements: (1) a small-scale emissions characterization study performed by the U.S. EPA in a facility designed to simulate open burning conditions; (2) a follow-on study by the EPA where samples from study 1 were reanalyzed using mutagenicity bio-assays directed factionation and subsequent chemical analyses; and (3) a field sample from the largest tire fire thus far in North America, in February 1990 in Ontario, Canada.
