The report discusses the combustion practices expected to result in decreased emissions of organic compounds from municipal waste combustion facilities. The objectives of the study were: To determine the current state of combustion control of municipal solid waste combustion technology; To formulate a combustion control strategy based upon 'best engineering practice' that will minimize the emission of trace organics from waste-to-energy plants; to define the research which is necessary to develop and verify this combustion control strategy. Although the focus of the study was concerned with the best combustion practices which will minimize the emissions of organics, including polychorinated dibenzo (p) dioxin and furans (PCDDs/PCDFs), the interrelationship with other pollutants such as particulate matter, metals, NOx, other organics, and carbon monoxide was also considered. The study focused on the design of new units and the operation and monitoring of new and existing units from the viewpoint of the combustor/boiler subsystem. The report discusses current technologies for mass-burn refuse- derived -fuel, and starved-air combustions, and the strategies for achieving improved, combustion from these technologies.
