The book contains test data collected at 23 stationary incinerators, conducted both by EPA and private industrial clients. These tests were conducted in accordance with requirements established under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). In addition to incinerator data, results from 11 lime, cement, and aggregate kilns plus 11 industrial boilers are included. Most of these tests were conducted by EPA. This compilation of data was the first time that such a compilation of data from so many combustion sources was ever accomplished. These data were to be used in conjunction with other EPA guidance available (e.g., EPA Guidance Manual for Hazardous Waste Incinerator Permits, PB84-100577. Professional judgment must be exercised by the user to avoid giving too much credence to questionable data, which have been flagged insofar as possible. The reader must be aware that all data in the handbook are for tests prior to 1986.
At head of title: Handbook. Distributed to depository libraries in microfiche. "September 1986." Includes bibliographical references. "EPA/625/6-86/012."
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Center for Environmental Research Information has preparedthis test burn data book for use i the permitting and testing of hazardous waste incinerators regulated under the Resouce Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The test results summarized represent hazardous waste test burns conducted at 23 full-scale stationary incinerators in the United States. nine of these tests were designed and conducted by EPA and its contractors as part of EPA's Regulatory Impact Analysis of the RCRA incinerator regulations. The others were conducted separately and individually by private industrial concerns and their contractors as part of their Part B application requirements for obtaining full operating permits under RCRA. In addition to the incinerator data, this book also presents results of tests at 11 lime, cement, and aggregate kilns and 11 industrial boilers. The EPA Hazardous Waste Engineering Research Laboratory conducted most of these tests as part of an overall research program aimed at determining the efficiency of these thermal unites for cofiring (and thereby destroying) hazardous wastes as fuel supplements or replacements. This is the first itme a data book containing results from a wide variety of combustion tests has been assembled. The book is intended to be used as a data source for reference purposes in developing and reviewing trial burn plans. It should be used in conjunction with other EPA guidance documents on hazardous waste incineration, such as the EPA Engineering Handbook for Hazardous Waste Incineration (EPA-SW-889) and the EPA Guidance Manual for Hazardous Waste Incinerator Permits (EPA-SW-966). The user is cautioned to exercise professional judgment when using the data in this document. Some of the data are of questionable value, and accordingly, every effort has been made to identify or flag such information. The user is also cautioned to critically evaluate the procedures and methodologies used to generate the data in this document, and to design future trial test burns in accordance with current guidance. Finally, since the data for this document was assembled in 1985, the results of several additional incinerator trial burns have been reported to various EPA Regions and authorized States. Thus, additional data are available for expansion of this data base, if desired. EPA Regional and State RCRA permit writers should be contacted for details of these more recent test burns.
