Ten innovative technologies for thermally destroying hazardous wastes were selected and described in the paper. These technologies were either supported by EPA's RCRA or SARA programs or developed by industry since 1980. Two of the important criteria used in selecting these technologies are that they are (or had been) at least at the stage of pilot-scale demonstration and appear to be promising in terms of destruction effectiveness. The 10 technologies are: Oxygen-Enriched Incineration, Westinghouse/O'Connor Combustor, Fluidized Bed Combustion, Circulating Bed Combustion, Molten Salt Combustion, Infrared System, Advanced Electrical Reactor, Plasma Arc, Wet Air Oxidation and Supercritical Fluid.
