Abstract
The burning efficacy of the New Orleans East incinerator, as indicated by organisms in refuse and in residue, is shown to be of high quality as compared with other incinerator studies. A comparison of the organisms in refuse and in residue showed a million fold destruction of total organisms per gram of material tested. Quantitation of heat resistant aerobic and anaerobic spores was also used as a measuring 'tool' for ascertaining burning efficiency. An average of 1 thousand to 100 thousand fold reduction of spores from the burned refuse was obtained.
