A comprehensive review of municipal incineration as it is practiced in the U.S. and several foreign countries is presented. The quantity of refuse generated and its present and future composition, as it relates to the incineration disposal method is reviewed. A study of incinerators in operation and under construction yields descriptive information on continous-feed, batch-feed, ram-feed, metal conical, and waste-heat-recovery incinerators. The design of the incinerator and of its basic components is discussed. The air pollution control devices for removal of particulates and gases are discussed. The operation, management and maintenance of incinerators are discussed. The particulate and gaseous incinerator emissions, and the methods used for their measurement are described. The review ends with presentation of data on incineration research and pilot projects. (APCO abstract)
