The report summarizes the complete results of Tier 4 (combustion sources) of the National Dioxin Study. The purpose of the Tier 4 study was to address the following questions: Do combustion sources emit dioxin. If so, how much. Are these emissions significant. A secondary objective was to attempt to determine what combustion parameters affect dioxin emissions and to determine the effectiveness of conventional control devices for controlling dioxin emissions. The report presents the results of a literature review containing 249 references, the results of a stack sampling program, and the results of an ash sampling program. The stack sampling program produced valid data from 12 sites covering 8 combustion source categories. Data are presented for dioxin (tetra through octa homologue + 2378-TCDD) and furan (tetra through octa homologue + 2378-TCDF) emissions as well as combustion conditions. Where possible, data were obtained before and after control devices. Ash samples were collected from 74 sites covering 22 combustion source categories. Dioxin and furan data are presented for the ash data. Various data correlations are presented.
