Abstract
The overall purpose of the study was threefold: To define and evaluate present and projected air pollution problems resulting from the incineration of municipal refuse; To analyze all methods and techniques for reducing atmospheric emissions from incinerator systems from the viewpoint of both present and advanced technology and basic economy; and To evaluate the study conclusions and recommend detailed research and development programs designed (a) to improve present incinerator control device systems, and (b) to develop new low air pollution processes for use in the thermal reduction and conversion of municipal solid waste. The study resulted in recommendations (cited in Chapter III) which should prove of value to existing plant owners, municipalities evaluating various alternatives in contemporary incineration systems, and to the federal, state, and private organizations which are looking for the latest advances in incineration technology, especially from the viewpoint of air pollution control.
