A series of three tests directed at evaluating the incinerability of the toluene stillbottoms waste from trichlorophenol production previously generated by the Vertac Chemical Company were performed in the Combustion Research Facility (CRF) rotary kiln incineration system. This waste contained 37 ppm 2,3,7,8-TCDD as its principal organic hazardous constituent (POHC). Flue gas 2,3,7,8-TCDD levels were less than detectable at all locations sampled. Corresponding incinerator destruction and removal efficiencies (DREs) were greater than 99.9997 percent, based on individual sampling train analyses. By analyzing combined extracts from four simultaneous sampling trains, it was concluded that 2,3,7,8-TCDD DRE was indeed greater than 99.9999 percent. These results suggest that incineration of the Vertac waste is capable of achieving the required DRE and should be considered a treatment option for this waste.
