The volume provides a two-part assessment of the market for incineration of liquid organic hazardous wastes. The first part is a profile of the current incineration market and the second part is an economic analysis which projects the demand for and supply of incineration capacity under alternative regulatory scenarios provided by the Agency. The market profile focuses on market size, market shares, volumes incinerated, available technologies, and EPA's regulatory program for incineration. The economic analysis is an evaluation of incineration capacity utilization comparing estimated on-site and commercial capacity (i.e., supply) with estimated volumes to be incinerated (i.e., demand). This comparison is done for baseline market conditions, and a series of cases projecting demand and supply in response to several RCRA regulatory amendment scenarios. The study concludes that future demand for incineration capacity will significantly exceed current capacity as land disposal alternatives are restricted under new RCRA regulations.
