The paper is an overview of the trial burn of a representative quantity of waste EDB pesticides and is based upon results presented in the Final Report prepared for Rollins by Alliance Technologies Corporation. The results demonstrated that the brominated material could be safely incinerated with no significant bromine stack emissions. Recent experience by industry with brominated wastes strongly suggested that the major objection to incinerating EDB, the uncontrolled release of bromine (Br) to the atmosphere, could be overcome by the addition of sulfur to the combustion process. One of the major objectives of the trial burn was to verify that the present of sulfur as SO2 would force the conversion reaction of Br to hydrogen bromide(HBr).
