Assessment of incineration as a treatment method for liquid combustible and other liquid organic waste streams must take into account the availability of technologies that offer suitable treatment and destruction alternatives to conventional incinerators. The report reviews existing and emerging thermal, chemical, and biological hazardous waste destruction processes that can be used to treat or destroy the same types of liquid organic wastes that are presently destroyed in incinerators. The report addresses the following questions: (1) What technologies other than incineration are now available, or may be available in the near future, to treat, destroy, or recycle combustible liquid hazardous wastes. (2) What is the likely commercialization rate of each of these technologies. (3) How do these technologies compare to incineration in terms of cost, capability, benefits, and environmental and human health impacts.
