A 293 kW (1 million Btu/h) incinerator was made available to the EPA for the characterization, which focused on determining the destruction efficiencies (DEs) and major products of incomplete combustion (PICs) for each CFC evaluated. Sampling was performed to screen for volatile and semivolatile organic emission products including chlorinated aliphatics, chlorobenzenes, chlorophenols, polychlorinated dibenzodioxins and furans (PCDDs and PCDFs), and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Results indicate that 99.999% DE can be achieved at a CFC-11 feed rate as high as 69% by mass. The formation of volatile and semivolatile organic PICs was minimal. 'Less than' concentrations are presented for target analytes not detected.
