Following an expanded introduction to the hazardous waste management area, the authors carefully lead the reader through the technical jargon, basic theory, calculational principles, and process design considerations. The reader is effectively ``walked'' through a hazardous waste incineration facility, examining in detail the incinerator, waste heat boiler, quencher, air pollution control equipment, and ancillary equipment. Generously supplemented with over 70 illustrative examples, ranging from trial burn procedures to detailed incineration applications. Concludes with a presentation of design principles, followed by two comprehensive design examples of a hazardous waste incineration facility.

Introduction to Hazardous Waste Incineration, Second Edition

The control of hazardous wastes is one of today's most critical environmental issues. Increasing numbers of engineers, technicians, and maintenance personnel are being confronted with problems in this important area. Incineration has become an available and vital option to meet the new challenge of containing hazardous wastes. Introduction to Hazardous Waste Incineration, Second Edition provides a reference work that examines the basic concepts, principles, equipment, and applications pertaining to hazardous waste incineration.

Uniquely serving as both an essential guidebook for practicing engineers and a text for engineering students, this new edition contains updated information in the area of standards and regulations, equipment, materials handling equipment, instrumentation, control performance testing, final permit, and facility design. The authors' aim is to offer the reader the fundamentals of incineration with appropriate practical application to the incineration of wastes, in addition to providing an introduction to the specialized literature in this and related areas.

Complete with illustrative examples, this informative Second Edition highlights:

  • Recent history of standards and regulations, including the recently enacted MACT Standards for hazardous waste combustion
  • Incineration principles, including stoichiometric calculations, and thermochemical considerations
  • Equipment that may be found in a waste incineration facility (i.e., incinerator, waste heat boiler, quench systems, and air pollution control equipment)
  • Design principles and their application to a hazardous waste incineration facility
  • Practice problems at the end of each technical chapter

Introduction to Hazardous Waste Incineration, Second Edition offers chemical and environmental engineers working in the hazardous waste control area, as well as technicians and maintenance professionals, the necessary literature to cope with some of the complex problems encountered in waste incineration today.
