Evaluation of atmospheric sources of PCDD/Fs, PCBs and PBDEs around an MSWI plant using active and passive air samplers.
Chemosphere. 2021 Jul; 274:129685.C

Abstract

This study evaluated the spatial distributions and concentrations of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in ambient air around a municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) plant located in eastern China in two sampling campaigns within one year. Twenty high-volume samples and 27 passive air samples were collected from May 2012 to May 2013. The mean sampling rate of the passive sampler was estimated to be 3.8 ± 1.8 m3 d-1 in summer and autumn, while the mean sampling rate was 2.8 ± 1.0 m3 d-1 in winter and spring. Hence, the annual mean sampling rate was approximately 3.2 ± 1.4 m3 d-1. The mean levels of PCDD/Fs, PCBs, PBDEs (excluding BDE-209) and BDE-209 in the passive air samples varied in the ranges of 0.086 ± 0.058-0.76 ± 0.51 pg TEQ m-3, 39 ± 26-170 ± 120 pg m-3, 3.3 ± 2.2-36 ± 24 pg m-3 and 58 ± 39-300 ± 150 pg m-3, respectively. The levels, congener profiles and spatial distributions of PCDD/Fs, PCBs and PBDEs were investigated. The results showed that the concentrations of PCDD/Fs and PCBs decreased with increasing distance from the emission source and that different sampling sites had slightly different effects. However, this trend was opposite to that observed for PBDEs. Moreover, principal component analysis (PCA) demonstrated that the MSWI emission source was the primary factor for PCDD/Fs in ambient air. Further monitoring should be conducted to evaluate the noticeable impact on the environment and human health due to exposure.
