Of the 260 MMT of hazardous waste generated annually in the United States, 1.70 MMT are disposed of in incinerators, 3.50 MMT are burned in boilers and 0.35 MMT are burned in other industrial processes. The paper is an overview of the technologies that can be used to combust hazardous wastes. The paper describes the USEPA regulations that affect incineration. Technologies for accomplishing the combustion of both solids and liquids are discussed. The capabilities of industrial boilers to effectively destroy wastes are addressed. The advantages and disadvantages of the use of cement kilns for waste disposal are presented.
