The report provides a generalized description of at-sea and land-based incineration of organochlorine wastes and an assessment of their corresponding impacts. The data base for at-sea incineration was obtained during a series of burns, between April 1974 and March 1977. Data describing land-based incineration were obtained from a review of the literature, and a brief survey of companies involved in commercial use and manufacture of incinerators. The report includes: (1) typical organochlorine waste compositions, (2) descriptions of emissions produced during at-sea and land-based incineration, (3) a simulation of corresponding air quality changes, (4) a description of predicted paths of transport of emission constituents, (5) estimates of water quality changes associated with both types of incineration, (6) an assessment of the potential for malfunction which could produce adverse environmental effects, (7) a general discussion of the kinds of environmental impacts associated with the incineration processes, and (8) identification of areas where there are needs for upgrading existing systems and data gaps which limit the comprehensiveness of the analysis.
