Abstract
This paper investigates the factors determining element behavior in municipal solid waste incinerators. The method is based primarily on field measurements in full-scale incinerators. Material flow analyses are carried out in an incinerator. The main focus is placed on the processes in the furnace. The following master variables determine element transfer behavior to the raw gas in the furnace:  (i) occurrence and distribution of the elements in the input waste; (ii) temperature, redox conditions, and content of chlorine and of reaction partners other than oxygen and chlorine in the furnace bed; and (iii) residence time and mixing conditions in the furnace bed. ...
