  • Incineration

    Introduction: High temperatures, 870 to 1,200 °C (1,400 to 2,200 °F), are used to volatilize and combust (in the presence of oxygen) halogenated and other refractory organics in hazardous wastes. Often auxiliary fuels are employed to initiate and sustain combustion. The destruction and removal efficiency (DRE) for properly operated incinerators exceeds the 99.99% requirement for hazardous waste ...

  • Pollutant emissions from modern incinerators

    Emissions of dioxins are mainly from incinerators, domestic and industrial coal combustion, and traffic. However, the major public concern and research effort are associated with the emissions of organic micropollutants from waste incinerators. This paper gives a brief overview of the more recent research and development for the removal of dioxins and heavy metals from flue-gas streams. Special ...

  • Particulate Control Strategies for Incineration

    Abstract This paper discusses various particulate emission control strategies that can be employed for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW), Municipal Sewage Sludge, and Industrial Waste Incineration facilities. An example will be given of a particulate control installation that successfully cleans off-gases from an incinerator at a large photographic products plant. Data supporting a theoretical ...


  • Tracking chiral polychlorinated biphenyl sources near a hazardous waste incinerator: Fresh emissions or weathered revolatilization?

    The Swan Hills Treatment Centre (SHTC), located in central Alberta, is the primary facility in Canada for incinerating polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Past studies have shown significant contamination by PCBs and other pollutants of the immediate surrounding region. However, it is unclear whether the major source of contamination to the region's atmosphere is historical release incidents or ...

  • Optimizing The Operation And Material Selection For Fluorinated Waste Gas Incineration

    A thermal oxidizer system is used by Honeywell Specialty Chemicals to reduce organic and acid gas emissions from their fluoro-products plant. The thermal oxidizer system consists of a multi-gas fired vortex burner mounted on a vertical residence chamber. ...

  • A STIEFEL project Waste Incineration Plant (KVA) Trimmis case study

    The waste incineration plant (KVA) Trimmis is situated in the eastern part of Switzerland and is connected to the railway network. As it is the only incineration plant in this province, it serves a large area with approximately 131’000 inhabitants. The local authorities waste disposal association named GEVAG is a public body serving 43 convention communities and 97 associated municipalities ...

  • Supercritical water oxidation presented as alternative to incineration – An update

    Environmentally benign waste disposal is becoming a more and more acute problem. A process now being commercialised, supercritical water oxidation is demonstrating extremely efficient organic waste destruction (99.99%) plus excellent environmental characteristics (none of the emissions associated with incineration). The process is especially suitable for the treatment of wastewater and sludges ...

  • Characterization of solid waste and determination of the emission potential

    Waste samples were taken in order to investigate the material behaviour regarding different treatment/recycling options. In waste incineration, the combustible and inert parts have to be determined. The content of biodegradable organic substances is important in biological treatment. The portion of biodegradable organic substance has also to be considered if wastes are to be landfilled. This ...

  • Incineration of Explosives-Contaminated Soil and Reactive RCRA Waste at the Former Weldon Spring Ordnance Works

    ABSTRACT This paper presents the results of a Combustion Risk Assessment (CRA) and Trial Burn Testing Program for a transportable hazardous waste incinerator at the former Weldon Spring Ordnance Works (WSOW), Missouri, USA. From 1942 to 1945, the Ordnance Works was the largest TNT manufacturing plant in the world, producing approximately 1 million pounds of TNT per day. The Transportable ...

  • Knowledge, attitude and practices toward dioxins in China's waste incineration industry and coking industry

    A questionnaire was used to survey the knowledge and attitude of senior managers toward dioxins at five waste incineration plants and seven coking plants. A field survey was performed to verify dioxin control practices at two of the waste incineration plants and one of the coke plants. All the respondents at the waste incineration plants claimed to be knowledgeable about dioxins and had a ...

  • Metal releases from a municipal solid waste incineration air pollution control residue mixed with compost

    The influence of 10 wt.% mature compost was tested on the heavy metal leachate emissions from a calcium-rich municipal solid waste incineration air pollution control residue (MSWI APC). Apart from elongated columns (500 and 1250 mm), an otherwise norm compliant European percolation test setup was used. More than 99% of the metals Al, As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe and Ni were left in the APC residue after ...

  • Impact of CO2 Emission Trading Schemes on Residual Waste Management

    ABSTRACT The EU-Emission trading scheme (ETS) in its current design hardly affects residual waste management directly: methane from landfill-sites is not included although it is one of the “Green-House-Gases” (GHG) of the Kyoto Protocol, CO2-emissions from waste incineration plants are generally exempted from the regulation of the directive and emissions from combustion of landfill-site gas can ...

  • Conception of a Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF) incineration plant and its environmental benefit

    Since landfill ban was realised in July 2009 in Germany, wastes that have a high and middle calorific value must be incinerated. Fossil fuels like oil and coal for the generation of electricity and/or heat can be substituted, so that approximately 4 million tons of CO2 could be avoided. Waste incineration is a possible partial solution for avoiding worst ...
