The paper discusses the use of combustion techniques for controlling air emissions of chlorinated dioxins, chlorinated furans, and other trace organics from municipal waste combustion (MWC) facilities. Recommendations for good combustion practice (GCP) for controlling trace organics were initially published in June 1987. These recommendations provided key criteria for the design, operation, control, and verification (compliance testing) of three types of combustors: waterwall mass burn, refuse derived fuel, and modular starved air combustors. The paper summarizes the technical considerations on which the initial GCPs were based. It also discusses current activities in revising the initial GCPs and in developing GCPs for other classes of municipal waste combustors. GCP is one of the pollution control options being considered for MWC air pollution standards. Standards which are to apply to new MWC facilities (as well as emission guidelines which are to apply to existing MWC facilities) are to be proposed in November 1989 and promulgated in December 1990.
