The results are presented of a study of afterburner or fume incinerator technology for control of gaseous combustible emissions from stationary sources. The scope of the study included evaluation of current engineering technology, evaluation of existing afterburner systems, assessment of present practices and problems, determination of major sources and potential applications, and development of research recommendations. The main results of the study are presented as a handbook, allowing the potential user to be able to decide if his particular emission is amenable to afterburning and to obtain a rough estimate of cost and size of equipment needed. The user will also be made aware of potential problems and recommended design features. (Author)
