This research was initiated to determine the operating conditions necessary to effect complete thermal destruction (greater than 99.99%) of pentachlorophenol (PCP)-treated wood in a controlled air incinerator (CAI) and to provide a basis for evaluating the applicability of other incineration systems to the destruction of PCP-treated wood. The treated wood in question was scrap from used ammunition crates in Korea. It has been proposed that a substantial amount of such wood be disposed of by incineration in a unit located in that country. A major concern in such incineration is the potential formation of such toxic compounds as chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans. Test results showed a combustion efficiency of >99.99% for PCP in the primary chamber under test conditions with no detectable production of tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) or tetrachlorodibenzofuran (TCDF) at detection limits in sample extracts of 1 and 5 ppb, respectively.
