Typical time/temperature/turbulence conditions in WTE facilities appear to have the capacity to achieve up to 99% destruction of PFAS. On the other hand, insufficient time/temperature/turbulence may result in products of incomplete combustion (PIC), which may further concentrate PFAS compounds.
The research findings in the report are based on a literature review and an analysis of investigations of PFAS emissions from WTE facilities.
