Laboratory determined thermal decomposition profiles and kinetic data for a list of 20 selected hazardous organic compounds are reported. All data were obtained in flowing air at mean gas-phase, high-temperature zone residence times ranging from one to six seconds. The extrapolated temperatures required for 99.99% destruction of the parent compound at two seconds mean residence time, T(99.99)(2), ranged from 600C for 1,1,1-trichloroethane to 950C for acetonitrile. The process and parameters potentially controlling incineration efficiency are discussed, and four previously proposed methods of ranking compound incinerability are critically reviewed.
