The study provides a baseline description of both land-based and ocean incineration technologies, identifies key issues regarding performance capabilities and operational techniques, and highlights the differences between the technologies with respect to these issues. The study focuses on the most common types of incinerators currently in use. On land, these are liquid injection incinerators and rotary kilns with liquid capability. For ocean incineration, the designs reviewed are the Vulcanus I and II and the two vessels under construction by the Tacoma Boat Company. Another ocean design in the conceptual stage, proposed by SeaBurn Inc., is also treated very briefly.
