Abstract The paper discusses the mechanistic implications of polychlorinated dibenzodioxin and dibenzofuran (PCDD and PCDF) homologue profiles from municipal waste and coal co-combustion. Variation in PCDD and PCDF homologue profiles from a pilot-scale, co-fired-fuel combustion program was used to provide insights into postcombustion PCDD and PCDF pollution formation mechanisms. The molar quantities of the mono- to octa-chlorinated homologues were determined as a function of sampling temperature and residence time, combustor operating conditions, and fuel type mixtures from a research program designed to determine the effect of co-firing coal with municipal solid waste on emissions of PCDDs and PCDFs. A 24-run, statistically designed test matrix varied dRDF and/or coal firing rates (at a constant targeted energy release rate) along with a range of process variables including calcium hydroxide injection, hydrogen chloride concentration, flue gas temperature, quench, and residence time such that the results would be relatable to a wide variety of waste combustors.
