One aspect of the environmental impact of semi-suspension incineration of municipal refuse is the emission of particulate matter to the atmosphere. In order to provide this essential, but nonexisting data, sampling was conducted at the only known operating facility of this type, the East Hamilton Solid Waste Reduction Unit, Hamilton, Ontario. Based upon three runs of EPA Method 5 during the period October 13-14, 1976, the No. 1 boiler and electrostatic precipitator at the subject facility emitted 0.528 grains per dry standard cubic foot, corrected to 12% carbon dioxide.
