The document is an evaluation of the Shirco Infrared Thermal Destruction Technology and its applicability as an on-site treatment method for waste site clean-ups. A Superfund Innovative Technical Evaluation was conducted on a 100-ton per day unit during a removal action at Brandon Florida. Also, a pilot-scale unit, 1-ton per day unit was demonstrated at the Demode Road Superfund site in Rose Township Michigan. Operational data and sampling analysis were carefully monitored to determine the technology's suitability for use in clean-up of waste materials at other sites. The unit, generally speaking, can decontaminate organic contaminants, retain metals in the ash, require feed preparation, and meet applicable incinerator performance standards.
