This full and summary report presents the results of a series of field performance tests supported by EPA conducted to (1) verify EPA hazardous waste incinerator trial burn protocol by actual on-site use and (2) to document actual field incinerator performance on a typical operating, state-of-the-art incinerator destroying real-world toxic and hazardous industrial waste. The results of EPA's testing series reported here showed a number of interesting features associated with modern industrial liquid and solid waste incineration technology. First, EPA's testing protocols were proven essentially workable in the field except for highly volatile and very low (eg. under 100-300ppm) concentrations of principle organic hazardous constituents. Secondly, this incinerator, the Hamilton County, Ohio Metropolitan Sewer District (Cincinnati MSD) unit essentially met current EPA regulatory policy except for inert particulates in most circumstances. The overall activity also quantified costs of conducting typical trial burns for this and similar units.
