The report contains the results of a study of air emissions from hospital waste combustion. These results will allow the EPA to assess the need for and feasibility of regulating multipollutant emissions from hospital waste combustion. Information was gathered from State and local environmental agencies, equipment vendors, the open technical literature, the American Hospital Association, and visits to three incineration facilities. Information was sought concerning feed characteristics, combustor designs and operating characteristics, emissions of air pollutants, applied and potential control technology, numbers and locations of hospital waste combustors, and applicable regulations. The report provides a description of the industry and characterization of hospital waste, information about the processes and equipment used for hospital waste combustion, data concerning air pollutants emitted from hospital waste incinerators and their formation in the combustion process, a discussion of air pollution control techniques and possible control efficiencies, a summary of regulations affecting hospital waste combustion and model plants for EPA's use in assessing regulatory strategies.
