Abstract

In order to study the incineration of processed municipal waste (RDF) as co-fuel in existing furnaces together with peat and wood chips, and to analyse PCDD/PCDF, PAH and chlorinated benzenes and -phenoles, tests and sampling were carried out at two district heating plants.

The results showed that the combustion of ca. 40 percent (weight) of processed municipal waste (RDF) in crushed and ca. 30 percent (weight) in pelletized form as co-fuel can be done with good combustion efficiency and low PCDD/PCDF, PAH, PCBz and PCP emissions.
