The primary objective of the study was to evaluate the sorption and desorption of organic compounds on combustion-generated soot during the cofiring of hazardous organics with fuel oil in a full-scale boiler. Sorption of organics was accomplished by firing a watertube package boiler at very low load, under a 'smoking' condition, while spiking hazardous organic compounds into fuel oil. This phase was followed by a 'clean' fuel firing phase using natural gas to look for any 'bleed-off' of POHCs and PICs. A secondary objective of the study was to characterize PIC emissions during the various test conditions, which is the subject of the Paper. The Paper has two major objectives: first, to evaluate and characterize PIC emissions from the combustion of specific POHCs and fuels, and second, to evaluate PIC and POHC emissions in relation to the levels of combustion gases such as carbon monoxide (CO) and to total hydrocarbons (THCs), in order to determine the usefulness of those gases as surrogates for the emissions of organic compounds.
