The report summarizes the results of a Phase II test program demonstrating the effectiveness of thermal destruction of industrial wastes in commercial scale facilities. Phase I was a study effort to select and match suitable wastes and destruction facilities, and to develop a set of detailed facility test plans. Phase II evaluated the environmental, technical, and economic feasibility of thermally destroying fourteen selected industrial wastes in seven different existing commercial scale processing facilities. Results indicated that each of the wastes tested can be thermally destroyed at high efficiencies. Separate detailed reports published for each facility test series conducted and the two-volume Phase I report are listed in the references.
