Rates of emissions of polynuclear hydrocarbons were measured at several sources considered likely to produce such emissions. The sources included heat generation by combustion of coal, oil, and gas; refuse burning; industrial processes; and motor vehicles. The annual emissions of benzo(a)pyrene in the United States were estimated for each of the sources surveyed, to provide a rough gauge of the importance of each source. Small, inefficient residential coal-fired furnaces appear to be a prime source of polynuclear hydrocarbons; other sources may be of local importance. Production of polynuclear hydrocarbons was generally associated with conditions of incomplete combustion. (Author)
