This study reports a methodology, and an accompanying set of empirical cost relationships, that can be used to estimate the costs of retrofitting/upgrading various components of existing hazardous waste incineration facilities to comply with RCRA performance requirements. Both the methodology and the retrofit cost relationships were intended to focus on major capital additions or subsystem modifications that could be required for RCRA compliance. 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) various 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 HC1 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.
