Abstract A detailed test program was performed at the U.S. EPA Incineration Research Facility to help determine the effectiveness of incineration in treating two contaminated lagoon sludges from the Bofors-Nobel Superfund Site in Muskegon, MI. The sludges tested were contaminated with various organic contaminants and trace metals. Three incineration tests were conducted for each sludge, for a total of six tests, in the facility's rotary kiln incineration system. Test results suggested that incineration under the conditions tested represented an effective treatment option for both sludges. Particulate emissions at the scrubber exit were high during incineration of one of the sludges while cadmium and lead collection efficiencies were low. This suggested the wet scrubber system may not be an appropriate choice for air pollution control.
