An incineration test program was conducted at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Incineration Research Facility to evaluate the potential of incineration as an option to treat contaminated soils at the Purity Oil Sales Superfund site in Fresno, California, and the McColl Superfund site in Fullerton, California. The soils from these sites are contaminated with up to several percent sulfur and with some hazardous organic contaminates. The Purity site has lead contamination from 760 to 10,200 mg/kg. The tests were conducted in a pilot-scale rotary kiln using a single stage ionizing wet scrubber for exhaust particulate control. Test results suggest that incineration would be an acceptable treatment option for the McColl site materials.
