PCDD/F removal efficiencies of the electrostatic precipitator and the wet scrubbers in IZAYDAS Incinerator were examined in a trial burn. Both units showed removal efficiencies higher than 90% for all congeners and homologues, producing >99% removal of PCDD/Fs. Congener and homologue profiles did not change significantly through ESP, but highly-chlorinated PCDD/Fs dominated after the wet scrubbers, suggesting that lower-chlorinated PCDD/Fs with high volatility are removed in higher rates.
