Using evaluated thermodynamic data in conjunction with process information, the programs ChemSage and ChemApp have been used to simulate the formation of dioxins in the off-gas of a sinter plant. By making certain assumptions with regard to the 'reactive' oxygen, carbon and water vapor at different positions along the sinter strand, it has been possible to calculate off-gas compositions and dioxin concentrations in close agreement with measured values.
