Abstract The suspension burning investigation was conducted in a horizontal laboratory boiler firing at a nominal heat input of 440 kw. The boiler had been modified to simulate large utility boilers and was further modified to investigate co-firing and tri-firing of coal, RDF, and hazardous liquids. Criteria emissions were obtained for a large number of co-fired conditions; many showed reduced nitric oxide emissions with co-firing relative to coal combustion. Organic and inorganic samples of the flue gas showed only two conditions where polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH's) were present. Those conditions were with tri-fired powder RDF, coal, and waste oil. Screening criteria showed levels of dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's) were below threshold values requiring complete analysis.
