The formation of unwanted Products of Incomplete Combustion (PICs) from the incineration of hazardous wastes under sub-optimal conditions must be avoided if incineration is to be effectively used to treat hazardous wastes. Studies of the thermal behavior of chlorinated C1s (methanes) and C2s (ethanes and ethenes) in non-flame, flat-flame, and shock tube devices have yielded results which offer a plausible explanation for the formation of certain PICs. To determine whether the same results are obtained in a larger, more complicated device, two mixtures of chlorinated methanes and two mixtures of chlorinated ethanes and ethenes were burned under high and low oxygen conditions in a Turbulent Flame Reactor (TFR).
