The EPA Mobile Incineration System, which consists of a kiln, secondary combustion chamber, air pollution control unit, and separate continuous stack gas analysis capabilities, was rigorously tested in 1982-1983 using PCB-contaminated liquids and other chlorinated organic fluids. Destruction and removal efficiencies of at least 99.9999% were consistently attained at a heat release of 10GT/hr. As a result of these favorable performance data, a project was initiated to evaluate the technical, economic, and administrative feasibility of on-site incineration of dioxin-contaminated materials. During 1984, the system was extensively modified for field use and performance-tested with a variety of uncontaminated soils and other solid wastes at the EPA facility in Edison, NJ. Based on the results of laboratory and pilot plant studies conducted to establish optimum kiln conditions and the available literature, the EPA system was judged to be more than adequate for detoxifying dioxin-contaminated solids and liquids, and thus could be expected to accomplish a successful dioxin trial burn.
