The Hazardous Waste Engineering Research Laboratory (HWERL) has conducted full scale and pilot scale boiler testing to determine hazardous waste destruction and removal efficiencies (DRE's) and other associated boiler performance parameters during the last five years. The effort investigated several anomalous boiler performance areas dealing with non-steady and off-design boiler operation and included measurements of volatile and semi-volatile organics in the flue gas as well as the fate of some heavy metals introduced into the system. The tests were performed at pilot scale and investigated hysteresis effects, phenomena detected during earlier full-scale testing. These hysteresis effects are defined as the propensity for a boiler to retain certain organic components of the feed material (beyond the duration to a typical sampling protocol), to be released over a longer time frame in an unspecific manner. The effort attempted to identify the presence of these effects beyond random variation, background concentrations and sampling problems such as sample contamination. These tests were partially successful at characterizing hysteresis phenomena as well as establishing a qualitative significance of these effects on the accuracy of DRE and other performance measurements.
