This report describes the medical waste incineration process starting from the point of generation of the waste and continuing through the handling and transportation of the waste, the combustion process, and the disposal of the ash. This report is designed to provide an overview of the medical waste incineration process, describe the types of medical waste incinerators (MWI's) and their components, and to discuss the combustion process as it relates to MWI's. The report is also intended to describe current practices associated with medical waste generation, segregation, handling, and transportation. Other specific purposes of the report include identifying and characterizing the pollutants, as well as describing the sources of emissions of these pollutants and the factors that affect emissions of specific pollutants.
