Experiments were conducted in a 73kW (250,000 Btu/hr) rotary kiln incinerator simulator to examine and characterize emissions from incineration of scrap tire material. The purposes of this project are to: (1) generate a profile of target analytes for full-scale stack sampling efforts, not to generate statistically defensible emission factors for the controlled combustion of scrap tire material; and (2) where possible, give insight into the technical issues and fundamental phenomena related to controlled combustion of scrap tires. Along with continuous emissions monitoring for oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO), nitric oxide (NO), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and total hydrocarbons (THCs), samples were taken to examine volatile and semi-volatile organics, polychlorinated p-dibenzodioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/PCDF), and metal aerosols. In addition, a continuous polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) analyzer was used in all the tests. Samples were analyzed with an emphasis on the 189 hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA), but other compounds were also identified where possible.
