Title Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon fumes in foundries
Original title Emission d'hydrocarbures polycycliques en fonderie [in French]
Bibliographic information 4th Quarter 1990, No.141, Note No.1802-141-90, p.799-807. Illus. 16 ref.
Abstract The purpose of this survey was to determine current levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) pollution in steel-casting and iron foundries. Contents: description of the sources of PAH emissions of foundry processes, sand binders. The relative influence of different parameters, particularly by that of new bonding processes, is also covered.
