The emissions from thirteen plywood dryers drying ten different specie types were studied. The objectives of the study included the determination of the physical and chemical nature of the emissions from these dryers during the drying of various veneer species under normal conditions of operation and the evaluation of process differences which might account for the observed differences in visual emissions. Determinations were made of the volatile and condensable hydrocarbon emissions. Visual observations of the equivalent opacity of the stack emissions were also made. Process and materials variables were documented to attempt to determine causes for the variations in hydrocarbon emissions.
