The report covers the field demonstration activities of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Mobile Incineration System (MIS) from February 1986 to June 1989 at the Denney Farm Site, Missouri. The activities discussed in the current report include: modifications made to the MIS to double its capacity and to improve its reliability; the 1987 trial burn for Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and Toxic Substances Contract Act (TSCA) wastes; tests to show the feasibility of processing brominated sludge and cancelled pesticides, including testing for metals emissions; delisting tests for the brominated sludge; site and incinerator closure activities; and the accomplishments, problems encountered, and solutions implemented during the operation of the MIS. In addition, a system availability analysis is presented. The information contained in the report is of benefit to those in the public sector who are considering or are currently applying incineration technology as a remedial alternative.
