The paper reports results of several EPA-supported field evaluations of data on gaseous pollutant emissions from modern municipal waste combustors/incinerators and emissions control by flue gas cleaning systems. The results are presented in terms of acid gas (HCl and SO2), trace organic (dioxin/furan), trace heavy metal, and particulate matter reductions through the use of lime spray dryer absorber/fabric filter and lime spray dryer absorber/electrostatic precipitator technologies. Plans for additional field tests are discussed briefly.
