The research uses experimental data and a statistical approach to determine the effect of combustion- and sorbent-injection-related parameters on the mechanism of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin and polychlorinated dibenzofuran (PCDD and PCDF, respectively) formation and prevention in waste combustors. The operation of a pilot-scale combustor was varied to effect different regimes of oxygen (O2), hydrogen chloride (HCl), and chlorine (Cl2) concentration; temperature; residence time; quench rate; and sorbent injection. Stepwise regression analyses determined the predictive parameters for four models of PCDD, PCDF, the total of PCDD and PCDF yield, and the partitioning between PCDD and total yield.
