Abstract
An experimental program was carried out in 1975/76 at the St. Lawrence Cement Co., Mississauga, Ontario in which waste chlorinated hydrocarbons, containing up to about 46 weight percent chlorine, were burned in a rotary cement kiln. Materials burned included mixtures of ethylene dichloride, chlorotoluene and up to approximately 50 percent polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB). These materials were destroyed in the cement kiln with at least 99.98 percent efficiency in all cases. Emissions of high molecular weight chlorinated hydrocarbons were not detected. Three light chlorinated hydrocarbons, dichloromethane, chloroform and carbon tetrachloride, were found in the emissions in the part per billion or lower range. The quantity of precipitator dust requiring disposal, as well as emissions of particulate matter, increased during the test. A reduction in fossil fuels used while burning chlorinated hydrocarbons was noted.
