The report describes a study to determine the feasibility of utilizing real-time continuous exhaust measurements of combustion intermediates as a way to monitor incinerator performance. The key issue was to determine if a direct correlation exists between destruction efficiency (DE) and intermediate species concentration measurements. Two general correlations were observed: the correlation between DE, THC, and CH4 is nearly proportional, and the CO correlation indicates that a significant increase in CO emissions is necessary before the exhaust concentration of waste compounds increases substantially.
