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.

What Is the HWI Software Package?

The HWI Software Package is contained on the disk (sometimes referred to as a floppy disk) that accompanies this book. This package consists of three programs and two data files. The three programs are briefly described below and are discussed in detail in Sections A.3, A.4 and A.5. Two of the programs, HWI and HWITRL, serve as the basis for the USEPA Air Pollution Training Institute's self-instructional course, ST-458. The materials for this course are provided in a file named SETUP, which is also contained on the floppy disk and is provided as part of this package with permission of the Air Pollution Training Institute. The setup program also allows easier installation of the HWI and HWITRL programs to the hard drive.

The three programs that make up the HWI software package are:

1. HWI - This program performs the hazardous waste incinerator calculations. Communication between you and the program is handled in interactive fashion; all data are inputted in response to prompts that appear on the monitor screen during execution of the program. The data file HWLDAT supplies required information to HWI.

2. HWITRL - The "TRL' stands for tutorial. The purpose of HWITRL is to familiarize the user with the HWI program. The solutions to two problems, as they would he solved using HWI, are simulated in step-by-step fashion. Some explanation of the theory behind the calculations is also presented on the monitor during the execution of HWITRL.

3. HWIF - This program is an expanded version of HWI and allows for waste blending, a secondary combustion chamber and quenching of the gas products. The data file HWIF.DAT supplies required information to HWIF
