Incineration offers advantages over other hazardous waste treatment technologies, and certainly over landfill operations. Incineration is an excellent disposal technology for all substances with high heat release potentials. Liquid and solid hydrocarbons are well adapted to incineration. Incineration of bulk materials greatly reduces the volume of wastes. Any significant reduction in waste volume makes management simpler and less subject to uncertainty.
If wastewater is too dilute to incinerate, yet too toxic to deepwell or biotreat, it is a good candidate for Wet Air Oxidation. Unlike other thermal processes, Wet Oxidation produces no smoke, fly ash or oxides. Spent air from the system passes through an adsorption unit to meet local air quality standards. Operating results show destruction approaching or exceeding 99% for many substances, including cyanides, phenols, sulfides, chlorinated compounds, pesticides, and other organics.
This section focuses on the various types of incineration, wet oxidation, and supercritical water oxidation processes.
