The authors provide an overview of thermal treatment, a discussion of EPA incineration regulations, and discussion of several specific thermal processes. Included are discussions of rotary kilns, liquid injection systems, industrial boilers, industrial processes using waste as fuel ocean incineration, and new thermal processes. The discussion addresses how the systems work, what the capabilities of the system are, and to what extent they are being utilized. The paper is of interest to those interested in a broad overview of incineration today.
