The report discusses post-combustion pollution control systems applicable to municipal waste combustion facilities. It describes each generic control system, design and operating considerations, and control effectiveness on selected pollutants. Control systems are discussed for particulate matter control, gaseous controls, and the more advanced multipollutant control systems. The report summarizes the effectiveness of the control systems for particulate matter, selected acid gases, selected organic pollutants, and selected trace heavy metals. Since the data from commercial municipal solid waste incinerators are limited, pilot plant data were also considered in reporting the control effectiveness of some pollutants. The report also addresses the operation and maintenance of flue gas cleaning systems.
