Comparing with emission limits for waste combustion The emission of PCDD/Fs from municipal solid waste combustion installations has been limited to 0.1 ng I-TEQ/[m.sup.3] at 11% [O.sub.2]) in a number of countries (e.g.
The emissions of dioxins from tire fires for tires with and for tires without chlorobutyl are considered to be negligible compared to the emissions from fires of pesticides and chemicals and to the emissions from municipal solid waste combustion installations.
Second, it aims at maintaining the moratorium on additional municipal solid waste combustion
, while developing new performance standards for existing waste-to-energy facilities that achieve higher recycling rates, lower pollution and greenhouse gas emissions and higher efficiency in energy recapture.
Examples from the municipal sector include waste glass, scrap tires, construction and demolition (C&D) debris, petroleum-contaminated soils, roofing shingle scrap, plastics, and municipal solid waste combustion residues.
* Municipal solid waste combustion bottom ash -- 69 percent, with 2 million tons (1.8 million metric tons) used and 2.9 million tons (2.6 million metric tons) produced.
