Abstract : A preliminary investigation is presented of direct liquid injection incineration as a waste treatment technique for the disposal of three selected USAF industrial wastes: metal finishing; petroleum, oil, and lubricant (POL); and photographic. Two commercially available pilot plant incinerators were used for the testing. Waste flow rates varied from 18 to 50 gallons per hour. Results indicated that particulate emissions control devices would be required for the incineration of the selected wastes. Cost estimates are computed for the three wastes and ranged from $0.001/lb POL waste to $0.01/lb of metal finishing and photographic wastes. (Author)
