In the search for disposal alternatives, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is evaluating the potential use of high-temperature processes for the incineration of hazardous wastes. Many kinds of waste have already been disposed of in boilers and cement kilns; this report considers the many other potential processes, such as metallurgical furnaces, brick and lime kilns, glass furnaces, and sewage sludge combustors. Each process is examined against such criteria as time/temperature profile, geographical location, product quality considerations, institutional factors, and environmental impacts. Promising alternatives are identified.
