Contents Notes
"This is a resource and guidelines report intended to aid the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Regional Offices in evaluating facilities which apply for approval of thermal destruction of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Annex I incinerators and high efficiency boilers (40 CFR 761) are emphasized. Information is provided on: fundamental combustion processes as they relate to incineration efficiency and the formation of organic compounds not originally present; thermal destruction technologies that have been or could be used for disposal of PCBs; thermal destruction tests on PCBs and other relevant materials; and a description and evaluation of sampling and analysis methods for PCBs. Guidelines and criteria are provided for: interpreting those parts of the PCB Regulations governing Annex I incinerators and high efficiency boilers; establishing the consistency of disposal operations with the regulations; evaluating Annex I incinerators and high efficiency boilers: Initial Reports, Notifications, Trial Burn plans, and Trial Burn data; issuance of approvals and monitoring compliance; and facilitating coordinated Agency review of PCB disposal operations."
