This summary describes the initial trial burn testing of the mobile incineration system that was developed through the EPA Office of Research and Development for destroying organic hazardous materials at spills and abandoned landfill sites. The trial burn test program consisted of a series of five tests designed to evaluate the system's ability to destroy selected hazardous organic materials while controlling the emissions of HCl, particulate matter, and organics according to the requirements of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), and the State of New Jersey. The results of the trial burn provided the information needed to obtain operating permits for the incineration system at many of the hazardous material sites that plague the nation.
