EPA's research data and Industry's experience have demonstrated that incineration has the highest overall degree of destruction and control for the broadest range of various waste streams, when compared to the other alternative technologies. Because each type of waste has its own characteristics and regulatory requirements, different incinerators are used to burn different types of wastes. This paper is to review and compare the three major waste streams generated during the daily life of the society. They are medical waste, industrial (hazardous) waste and municipal waste. The key parameters to be used for comparisons include the following categories: Regulatory Requirements; Waste Characteristics; Incineration Technology; and Effluent Characteristics.
