Contents Notes
"This study reports a methodology that can be used to estimate the costs of major capital additions or subsystem modifications for retrofitting/upgrading existing hazardous waste incineration facilities to comply with RCRA performance requirements. The results of the study are expressed in a series of empirical relationships between the costs for various capital modifications/ additions and factors that significantly impact these costs, e.g., capacity, materials of construction, etc. Costs are developed for (1) aspects of combustion system retrofit to improve destruction of toxic waste constituents, (2) scrubbing system component addition, replacement, or upgrading to improve particulate and/or HCI removal, and (3) addition or replacement of ancillary equipment mandated by combustion or scrubbing system retrofit. The costs are based on a combination of in-house engineering and vendor-supplied budgetary cost estimates."
