Abstract

Just recently, there has been a growing concern over the impact of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) emission in Taiwan. In 32 boilers which burned simple grade-6 oil, the main metals, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in stack exhaust gas were measured. Thirty two selected boiler stacks were sampled and analyzed for the concentration characteristics, emission rate, emission of coefficients of particulate, fourteen metals, and seventeen VOCs. Overall, the results showed that the factors affecting emission characteristics of the particulate and 14 heavy metals for boiler stacks are not similar.
