Abstract

Several compounds of the dioxin-homologues are extremely toxic; therefore the decreasing of the dioxin emission has special importance in the environmental protection. This article gives a brief overview of the structure of dioxins as well as the mechanisms of the production, describes their toxic effects, their appearances and their determination methods. The article gives a deeper review about the decrease of dioxins produced during the production of renewable energies, with special regard to the industrial wood firing systems. The latter is extremely important because - according to the Kyoto Protocol - The ratio of the wood firing will increase; and it should be considered that this fact should not increase the environmental pollution.
