Abstract

Municipal waste incineration is a significant source of toxic metals found in atmospheric aerosols (Natusch, 1982). The properties of aerosols emitted from the incinerator depend on the type of refuse, supplementary fuel and the characteristics of the combustion process. The estimation of environmental risks and the choice of emission control equipment require the properties of refuse combustion aerosols to be known. The mass and metal size distributions of aerosols from two incinerators, one burning municipal waste, the other hospital refuse, and both burning oil as a supplementary fuel, have been measured.
