The report gives results of an investigation of the formation of products of incomplete combustion (PICs) during 'recovered' trichlorofluoromethane (CFC-11) incineration. Tests involved burning the recovered CFC-11 in a propane gas flame. Combustion gas samples were taken and analyzed for volatile organic compounds as well as polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/PCDF). Test results confirm that incineration can be used to effectively destroy recovered CFC-11; CFC destruction efficiencies of greater than 99.9999 (six nines) were consistently demonstrated for CFC-11-to-propane molar ratios of 0.66-0.6. Additionally, low levels were detected when sampling downstream of the flue gas scrubber. Results of a secondary goal of the study, to determine the fate of chlorine (Cl) and fluroine (F), were inconclusive.
