Mechanochemical dechlorination and destruction of polychlorinated dioxins and furans (PCDD/F) on fly ash from municipal solid waste incineration was tested with and without addition of CaO and CaO/aluminium powder. Initially, obvious PCDD/F reformation occurred, and a second test series was conducted after removing soluble salts (e.g., NaCl, KCl) by thorough two-stage water washing. The second test series demonstrated good destruction results, especially with addition of CaO/aluminium powder.
