Hazardous waste incinerators are regulated under the Resource Conservation Recovery Act (RCRA). On the other hand processes that produce energy and only incidently burn hazardous waste materials are currently exempt from the RCRA incinerator regulations. EPA has initiated a Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) to determine if and to what degree regulation of such processes may be required. As part of the RIA study, EPA has conducted field tests of industrial processes that burn hazardous waste materials. This paper describes the testing and results of testing of two industrial boilers and a lime kiln that burned hazardous waste materials during the test program. Data on emissions and plant operating conditions that existed during emission measurements are presented. The hazardous compounds burned ranged from non-halogenated solvents to high chlorinated materials such as trichloroethylene. Calculated destruction efficiencies for the hazardous compounds were in the range of from 99.929 to 99.9999.
