The paper gives results of the characterization of organic emissions resulting from the pilot-scale incineration of trichlorofluoromethane (CFC-11) and dichloro-difluoromethane (CFC-12) under varied feed concentrations. (NOTE: As a result of the Montreal Protocol, an international accord implemented to reduce the production and use of stratospheric ozone depleting substances, considerable quantities of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and halons may be accumulated and ultimately require disposal or destruction. Incineration is a potential destruction technology; however, little is known of the combustion emission characteristics from CFC incineration.) A 293-kW (1 million Btu/h) incinerator was made available to the EPA for the characterization, which focused on determining the destruction efficiencies (DEs) and major products of incomplete combustion (PICs) for each CFC evaluated.
