Abstract
In 1995 the comprehensive studies of environment impact assessment were carried out for the „LOBBE” incineration plant in Dąbrowa Górnicza (Poland). It focused mainly on air pollution problems. Emission measurements for polluting agents produced in the thermal treatment process of different kinds of waste materials were performed. The study covered both sludge and slime incinerated in a multiple hearth furnace and four example groups of waste materials incinerated in a rotary furnace. The research have helped confirm the levels of air emissions as a function of the type of incinerated waste and load of the furnaces. The measurements were carried out for air pollutants such as: SO2, NOx, CO, HCl, HCN, fluorine compounds, H2S, phenol, dust including heavy metals, B(a)P, Hg, as well as dioxins and furans. Several data concerning the effectiveness of polluting agents removal in foam-absorption scrubbers used for flue-gas cleaning were also obtained.
