The purpose of the paper is to present procedures for collecting and evaluating key data that affect the potential application of thermal desorption for a specific site. These data are defined as 'critical success factors'. The screening procedure can be used to perform an initial assessment, based on limited data, to determine if thermal desorption may be a viable technology for a given application. The critical success factor screening methodology is executed in six steps: data collection; waste classification; on-site versus off-site treatment evaluation; critical success factor evaluation; contingency planning; and treatment system size evaluation.
