Experiments were conducted to assess: (1) the effect of residual copper retained in an incineration facility on polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxin and dibenzofuran (PCDD/PCDF) formation during incineration of non-copper-containing chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and (2) the formation of chlorinated and aromatic products of incomplete combustion (PICs), including PCDD/PCDF, during incineration of CFC recycling residue and hydrochlorofuorocarbons (HCFCs). The study of the effect of residual copper on PCDD/PCDF formation included repetition of a test conducted in FY 91 in which high levels of PCDD/PCDF were measured during incineration of dichlorodifluoromethane (CFC-12).
