The paper describes five combustors, results of some completed research, and plans for future studies at EPA/AEERL's RCRA-permitted facility at Research Triangle Park, NC. Research is conducted to examine the effect of operating parameters such as residence time, temperature, turbulence, and waste characteristics on incineration of principal organic hazardous constituents (POHCs), the formation of products of incomplete combustion (PICs), and the transformation of trace metals. The five combustion systems include a rotary kiln incinerator simulator, a package boiler simulator, a horizontal tunnel combustor, a two-stage fluidized-bed combustor, and a commercial package boiler.
