Help wanted in locating report name and other references of toxics in fossil fuels
I have a comparison of metal concentrations in fuels from the California
Air Resources Board that was cited in the report entitled, _Burn, Baby,
Burn: How to Dispose of Garbage by Polluting Land, Sea and Air at
Enormous Cost_ by Elizabeth Holtzman, Comptroller of the City of New
York, January 1992.
I'm having trouble finding where the original report is cited. But, the
data on page A-9 of the Holtzman report says: ''..such metals enter the
air or become part of the ash residue.'' Therefore, I assume they speak
of the fly ash.
Does any one know the name of the original report from the California
Air Resources Board and where it can be acquired?
Also, does anyone have a documented report citing hydrocarbons and PAHs,
including dioxins in the various fossil fuels?
The California Air Resources Report (as used in the Holtzman Report)
compares the concentratons of US Coal, Oil, and municipal solid waste
for cadmium [not reported in oil], chromium, copper, mercury [not
reported in oil], manganese, nickel, lead, and zinc and quantities are
reported in ug/MJ. MJ=million jewels; 1 jewel= 1,054 Btus.
Oil U.S. Coal Solid waste
Cadmium not reported 110 702
Chromium 3.2 1,017 15,102
Copper 4.6 510 26,237
Mercury not reported 18.7 166
Manganese 3.6 2,081 15,419
Nickel 251 677 6,380
Lead 13.9 738 39,290
Zinc 17.8 1,582 60,943
I would appreciate any references.
