The emissions from a water wall mass fired municipal waste incinerator and a refuse derived fuel (RDF) fired incinerator were sampled for chlorinated organic compounds and hydrochloric acid (HCl). The sampling was performed to evaluate the extractive sampling methods used to measure the compounds. Sampling the chlorinated organic compound emissions was conducted using a modified version of the EPA Reference 5 Method, which included an XAD-2 resin cartridge. HC1 was sampled with an impinger train using basic absorbing solutions. The recovered chlorinated organics were separated into chlorophenols, chlorobenzenes, poly-chlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (CDDs), and chlorinated dibenzofurans (CDFs), and quantitated. The results of the analysis are presented in terms of the compounds distributions' within the sampling systems as well as the emission rates.
