Incineration tests of selected chemical wastes were conducted at the fluidized bed incinerator facility operated by Black Clawson Fibreclaim, Inc., in Franklin, Ohio. These tests were performed under contract with Systems Technology Corporation to determine the effectiveness of thermal destruction of two different industrial liquid wastes: (1) an aqueous phenol sludge, and (2) an aqueous solution of methyl methacrylate monomer. Each waste was burned at two different conditions to determine the effects of normal operating and equipment variables. Analysis of combustion gas samples indicated destruction efficiencies of over 99.999 percent for each waste constituent. Standard EPA Method 5 tests were performed on stack emissions to determine particulate loading and composition. No organics were detected in the scrubber water or ash. Test results indicated that either waste can be effectively destructed in a fluidized bed reactor. Estimated cost of destroying 13.2 million liters/year of aqueous methyl methacrylate was $6 million capital investment and an operating cost of $255/metric ton. Cost of incinerating 23.8 million liters/year of aqueous phenol waste was estimated to be $6 million capital investment and $124/metric ton operating cost.
