Environment Canada, under the National Incinerator Testing & Evaluation Program (NITEP), is addressing emissions from municipal energy-from-waste combustion systems. The main thrust of the program is to attempt to characterize emissions in relation to design and operation for a selected number of both combustion and emission control technologies. Although the focus is largely on dioxins, many other organic and inorganic parameters are included. To date, NITEP has evaluated the two-stage modular system, a mass-burning facility and a scrubber fabric filter emission control system. This paper reports on the results of these tests.
