The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Incineration Research Facility in Jefferson, Arkansas, is an experimental facility that houses two pilot-scale incinerators and the associated waste handling, emission control, process control, and safety equipment; as well as onsite laboratory facilities. During fiscal year 1990, two major test programs were completed at the facility: an evaluation of the thermal-stability-based principal organic hazardous constituent incinerability ranking for the Office of Solid Waste (OSW), and an incinerability evaluation of five contaminated materials from the Purity Oil Sales and the McColl Superfund sites for Region 9 and the Office of Emergency and Remedial Response (OERR). In addition, results of two test programs completed in FY89 were reported: an evaluation of the fate of trace metals fed to a rotary kiln incinerator equipped with a single-stage ionizing wet scrubber for air pollution control for OSW, and an incinerability evaluation of arsenic and pesticide contaminated soils from the Baird and McGuire Superfund site for Region 1 and OERR. Several facility and equipment construction and upgrade efforts were also completed.
