The EPA Mobile Incinerator has demonstrated its ability to successfully destroy dioxin. A trial burn conducted in 1987 demonstrated the incinerator's ability to destroy a wide variety of compounds. The destruction and removal efficiency (DRE) of carbon tetrachloride, hexachloroethane, and trichlorobenzene was greater than the required 99.99%, and the DRE for PCBs was greater than the required 99.9999%. The field demonstration of the mobile incinerator that began in 1985 is scheduled for completion in 1989 after incinerating 4,530,000 kg of waste material.
