Pilot-Scale incineration testing was conducted at the United States Environmental Protection Agency's Incineration Research Facility (IRF) to support the development of best demonstrated available technology (BDAT) standards for the treatment of several hazardous wastes from specific sources (K-Wastes). All testing was conducted in the IRF's rotary kiln system. The paper summarizes the results of this testing for four of these wastes. The objective was to determine if these wastes could be incinerated by a well designed, well operated incinerator based on compliance with the hazardous waste incinerator regulations and to characterize the incineration residuals for hazardous constituents. It was found that these wastes could generally be incinerated in compliance with these regulations. However, the mist carryover from the air pollution control device would have to be more effectively controlled to meet the particulate standard in some cases. No detectable amounts of principle organic hazardous constituents (POHC's) were found in either the kiln ash or scrubber blowdown.
