Incineration Systems for Hazardous Wastes

Incineration systems for hazardous wastes are significantly different than their counterparts

for nonhazardous waste. The differences are not, however, in the basic type of combustion

technology or associated air pollution control system but in the waste receiving and

feeding systems, the instrumentation and control systems, and the intense design and

operational attention paid to the reliable, continuous achievement of performance: the

burnout of feed material, the abatement of air emissions, and the secure disposal of

residues.
