Contents Notes
"Field tests were undertaken at the Cincinnati Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD) hazardous waste incinerator for the purpose of verifying the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA's) trial burn protocol and to conduct an environmental assessment. The incinerator tested was equipped with a rotary kiln ... and a cyclone furnace .... Air pollution control was provided by a venturi scrubber and sieve tray tower. Two types of waste were fired during the tests, one was a pesticide-containing waste and the second was a high chlorine content waste. Test results indicated that 99.99% destruction and removal efficiency (DRE) was achieved as required by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations for the selected principal organic hazardous compounds (POHCs). However the incinerator did not meet the particulate standard of 180 mg/dscm nor the HCl removal efficiency of 99%. It is believed that the malfunction of the demister and the low pH of the absorber solution were the probable reasons for the higher particulate loading and the low HCl removal efficiency, respectively. Several recommendations have been made with respect to the trial burn protocol and the sampling and analysis procedures."
