This paper discusses the sampling and analytical methods for, the implementation of, and the results of the initial trial burn conducted with the EPA-ORD Mobile Incineration System. The system was developed to destroy hazardous substances and toxic wastes on site. The trial burn program consisted of five tests with different liquid feeds, (including tetrachloromethane and PCBs) to evaluate the system's capability for destroying organic hazardous substances while controlling emissions of HC1, particulate matter, and hydrocarbons in compliance with the requirements of the Federal RCRA and TSCA, as well as those of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
