Contents Notes
"The Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER-EPA) is considering establishment of a criterion for land disposal of waste or residue. This criterion is based on the achievement of residue quality equivalent to that from effective incineration. The purpose of this study was to provide data on the quantities and characteristics of solid and liquid discharges from hazardous waste incineration facilities. A total of 10 facilities were sampled comprising major incineration designs and flue gas treatment devices. All inlet and outlet liquid and solid streams were sampled and subjected to extensive analyses for organic and inorganic pollutant concentrations. Laboratory analyses for solid discharge streams also included leachate evaluations using standard EPA toxicrty tests for metals and a draft Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) for volatile and semivolatile organics and metals. Monitored data on incinerator facility operation was then used to determine the discharge rates of detected pollutants."
