The purpose of this document is to provide to the peer reviewers and interested members of the public, ORD's most recent estimates of dioxin emissions for the years 1987 and 1995 along with a detailed description of the analytical process and rationale that support these estimates. This document addresses compounds in the following chemical classes: polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs or CDDs), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs or CDFs), polybrominated dibenzodioxins (PBDDs or BDDs), polybrominated dibenzofurans (PBDFs or BDFs), polychlorinated biophenyls (PCBs). The CDDs include 75 individual compounds, and CDFs include 135 different compounds. Likewise, the BDDs include 75 different congeners, and the BDFs include an additional 135 congeners.
