Abstract
As a result of the actions of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in banning the manufacture of PCBs and in requiring that PCBs and PCB contaminated material still in service be withdrawn as soon as is practical, there is a large and growing reservoir of PCB-contaminated hydrocarbons in the United States. In any case, many of these contaminated materials possess significant energy content and therefore could serve as fuel for some industrial processes. In this era of very high fuel costs, there is great demand for PCB-contaminated materials to be used as fuel. A further impetus in this direction is the fact that the PCB Disposal Regulations (referred to herein as the Regulations) specify that incineration is the preferred method of disposal of PCBs and of PCB-contaminated materials. In view of these considerations, it is highly desirable that a series of co-firing experiments be carried out on a coal-fired high efficiency power boiler. Such a test series is described in this document.
