Abstract: A comparison between different emission rates of various pollutants obtained from various wastes is presented. The studied wastes were the following: polyethylene, tyres, sewage sludge, polyvinyl chloride, cotton textiles, polyester textiles, meat and bone meals, varnish wastes, olive oil solid waste (pomace), waste lube oils, paper waste, tomato plant, pine needles and cones, mobile phones and automotive shredder residue. The decomposition of these wastes was studied in a horizontal laboratory scale reactor at 850 ºC in an inert and an oxidizing atmosphere, and the analysis of the pollutants evolved comprised several compounds such as light hydrocarbons, PAHs and PCDD/Fs.
