The report identifies and quantifies a broad range of pollutants that are discharged during small-scale, simulated, open combustion of land-clearing debris and reports these emissions relative to the mass of material combusted. Two types of land-clearing debris (representing the typical land-clearing debris found in Florida and Tennessee; primarly wood and other organic debris) were combusted in a facility designed to simulate open burning. One debris sample was also combusted in the same facility using a simulated air curtain incinerator. Volatile, semivolatile, and particulate-bound organics were collected and analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. Fixed combustion gases (carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitric oxide, oxygen, and total hydrocarbons) were monitored continuously throughout the test period. The project produced estismated emissions data for a broad range of atmospheric pollutants from a simulated open debris combustion process.
