Air Pollution Aspects of Incineration Processes

Air pollutant emissions have become the focus of public concern and regulatory scrutiny

regarding incineration facilities. The fraction of total facility capital cost for system

components functionally directed at compliance with air emission limitations is, for many

plants, more than 35% of the total investment. In many instances, the award of air pollution

permits is the pacing and controlling event in the implementation of incineration facilities.

Because of these realities, those wishing to construct and operate incineration systems

should explore and understand the relationships between the quantity and characteristics of

air pollutant emissions and
