This dioxin report focuses on air emissions and releases to land from waste incinerators and crematoria. RESULTS A summary of air emission estimates for each waste incineration category and crematoria is given below in Table 1. This toolkit was developed to assist countries in identifying sources and estimating releases of dioxins and furans. A further aim of the toolkit is to provide a common approach to the preparation of dioxin and furan emission inventories, allowing a representative comparison of inventories prepared in different countries.

Dioxins and furans refer to a class of polyhalogenated aromatic hydrocarbons generated by various chemical processes occurring often at high temperature. The main sources of dioxins and furans have been classified into four categories, namely: incineration, combustion, industrial processes and natural processes such as volcanic eruptions.   A number of studies have found dioxins in the emissions and ash/soot from wood fires in non industrial situations (Stanmore, ). According to the European Emission Inventory, wood combustion is at present one of the most important air emission sources for dioxins . Dioxins formation upon wastes burning depends on composition and combustion conditions. In order to identify characteristics and strength of emission sources of POPs from wastes open burning in different marzes (provinces) of Armenia and to calculate dioxins emissions to air and soil UNEP methodological guidance was used. - UNEP Toolkit coefficients: mcg TEQ/ton for air (1) and - coefficients proposed by Par Costner: mcg TEQ/ton for air and mcg TEQ/ton for soil (3) to calculate the emissions of dioxins to air and their discharge to soils as a result of waste burning/ignition at dumps (Table 2 and Figure 1).
