This report is Volume I, Executive Summary, of a series of extensive performance data EPA obtained through eight (8) field tests of actual industrial/commercial incinerators, was prepared in response to the Agency's need to conduct a regulatory impact analysis (RIA) for hazardous waste incinerators to determine the need, adequacy, and economic feasibility of current RCRA incinerator regulations. Tests involved trial burn-type testing at each plant during typical albeit closely monitored daily operations on wastes typical of their routine disposal function. Most incinerators were found to be closely approaching or performing within RCRA requirements for destruction of compounds, although some facilities showed substandard results in other areas.
