The paper gives results of a study of steady state and transient operating conditions when cofiring surrogate liquid hazardous waste in a firetube packaged boiler. The destruction and removal efficiencies (DREs) for the principal organic hazardous constituents (POHCs) were determined under the varying conditions. Results indicate that aromatic chlorocarbons are the most difficult to destroy. A DRE of <99.99% was experienced for transient operating conditions in load, stoichiometry, and waste feed rate. Steady operation above 10% excess air ensures DREs of >99.99%. Major products of incomplete combustion (PICs) seen were methylene chloride and chloroform.
