Further, new PCDD/Fs may be formed in the trapped particulate phase via de novo synthesis and the new compounds may be emitted, thereby increasing total PCDD/F emissions, apart from altering the homologue pattern of PCDD/Fs in emissions.

Dioxins are formed by denovo synthesis reaction

De-novo synthesis of PCDD/PCDF was clearly seen in the flyash with large changes in concentrations of PCDD/PCDF with only small changes in temperature.

In flue gas, dioxins are adsorbed to activated carbon and fine dust particles and evaporated in the gas phase. By cooling the flue gas with dilution air, a high portion of the gaseous dioxins are adsorbed by the particles, thus, most of the dioxins are precipitated on the dust filter at the temperature of 40°C. At this low temperature, no further reactions (losses) or denovo synthesis (formation) are possible.
