ResumenThe aim of this work is to give representative data on polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDD), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) from stack gas emissions of an urban solid waste management plant which has to comply with the limit of 0.1 ng I-TEQ/N m3. In particular, the study is focused on 29 target compounds, the seventeen 2,3,7,8-PCDDs/Fs, four non-ortho PCBs and eight mono-ortho PCBs which configure so-called ‘dioxin-like’ PCBs (DL-PCBs). To this end, emission measurements were performed during one year over the three operating combustion lines in a selected waste management plant. In general, accurate methodology allowed characterizing all target compounds in almost all the samples analyzed. In addition, a typical pattern for DL-PCBs is reported. The pattern presented PCB #118 to be the highest, nevertheless the figures demonstrated DL-PCBs contribution to the total TEQ around 3% being PCB #126 the most important congener due to its TEF of 0.1. Finally, remarkable differences were achieved in comparison with both environmental and biological samples such as soils, sediments, human milk or fish since these matrices may present DL-PCB contribution to the total TEQ up to 77%.
