The paper gives results of a survey of available waste incineration and emission control technologies in the U.S., Japan, and Western Europe. Increasing concern over landfills as a waste management option and the decreasing availability of sites have focused attention on incineration for destruction of hazardous wastes and volume reduction of other wastes in the U.S. Incineration requires the control of air pollutant emissions, which can be minimized by combining in-furnace and post-combustion control technologies. Since future potential regulation of both hazardous air pollutants and acid rain precursors may cause extensive retrofit or early termination of existing waste incineration installations, planning for new or modified installations should recognize the various control technologies available in order to minimize future outlays if regulations are tightened.
