A 5-week series of pilot-scale incineration tests, employing a synthetic waste feed, was performed at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Incineration Research Facility to evaluate the fate of trace metals fed to a rotary kiln incinerator equipped with a venturi scrubber/packed column scrubber. Completed were three tests to evaluate the valence state of chromium in emissions and discharges as a function of valence state in the feed and feed chlorine content, and eight tests to evaluate the fate of five hazardous constituent and four nonhazardous constituent trace metals as a function of incinerator operating temperatures and feed chlorine content. This volume contains the appendices, titled Incinerator operating data; Analytical laboratory reports; Sampling train data sheets; Vost GC/FID analysis procedure.
