The exposure of persons to fiberglass combustion emissions from structural fires, fires at waste landfills, and fires at demolition sites has become an issue of increasing concern. The study identifies and quantifies a broad range of pollutants that are discharged during small-scale, simulated, open combustion of fiberglass and reports these emissions relative to the mass of fiberglass material combusted. Two types of fiberglass materials (representing the boating and building materials industries) were combusted in a controlled outbuilding designed to simulate open burning. Volatile, semivolatile, and particulate-bound organics were collected and analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS).
