Changes in waste disposal patterns prompted by newly enacted legislation has resulted in a significant change in the composition of hazardous wastes presented for incineration. Metal-containing wastes that were historically landfilled are now being incinerated with increasing frequency. To study the distribution patterns of metals that are subjected to incineration, a series of pilot-scale incineration tests were performed at EPA's Incineration Research Facility. Utilizing the variables of: combustion temperature and feed chlorine concentration, a series of eight tests were completed to evaluate the behavior of: arsenic, barium, bismuth, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, magnesium and strontium.
