Emissions of metals and organics from a series of four wastewater sludge incinerators were determined. Three multiple hearth units and one fluidized bed combustor were tested. Emissions were controlled with a combination of venturi and/or tray impingement scrubbers. One site incorporated an afterburner as well. Flue gas testing was conducted at the inlet and outlet to the air pollution control devices at two of the plants. Feed sludge was also extensively tested for moisture, metals, and organics, as well as overall feed rate and heating value. Testing operating conditions were categorized as short-term versus long term or normal (includes transients, start-up, feed interruptions, etc.).
