Good morning, In EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2016, chapter 1.A.2 Manufacturing industries and construction (combustion), table 3.24, there is the reference "SINTEF 2006" for HCB.
Please, could you send me the document and the page where this value for HCB is?
Thank you very much

Dear Virginia,

Thank you for your patience.

The starting point of the evaluation is the SINTEF study, available at https://docs.wbcsd.org/[…]/FormationAndReleaseOfPOPsInCementIndustry.pdf. Please note the following considerations: 1. "few data are available on the release of PCBs and almost none for HCB” (page 104), 2. Figure 17 HCB levels (page 102) measured in the Holcim study (ng/Nm3) a rough evaluation of 2 ng/m3 can be derived as HCB concentration in flue gas.

The emission factor is obtained as reported in the document chapter note to Table 3-24: “ For HCB and PCBs the values in the references have been converted using 2300 Nm3 per tonnes.”

EF = 2 ng/m3 * 2300 m3/tonne = 4,6 ug/tonne

We hope that this information may be useful for you.

With kind regards,
