Thermal destruction of wastes by direct incineration or by cofiring with conventional fuels in boilers, furnaces, or kilns is one of the most effective methods currently available for disposal of hazardous organic material. However, more information is needed on the potential for emissions to the environment during thermal destruction. The specific objectives of the current study were to identify which of several boiler operational parameters have a major impact on boiler destruction and removal efficiency; and to evaluate and if practical, establish a mathematical model for predicting an upper limit on the amount of cofired waste that could be emitted. The program was carried out in three phases: a detailed characterization of thermal history and environment of a pilot-scale furnace under various sets of operating conditions; a study of the DRE of one compound as conditions were varied; and finally, a study of DRE's of several compounds burned simultaneously (a composite 'soup').
