Miscellaneous hazardous waste management units include units that do not fit within the definition of the more typical waste management units described in 40 CFR part 264 (containers, tanks, incinerators, etc.). These also include thermal treatment units other than incinerators, boilers or industrial furnaces, and geologic repositories other
• Treatment should be viewed in the context of the waste management hierarchy • Measures should first be taken to minimize • Addition of the waste charging system, heat recovery boiler if used, and ash Waste Incinerators • Air Emissions trace metals: As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Hg, Mg, Ni, Pb
In contrast, however, incineration is an ultimate disposal method in that the combustible compounds in the waste gas are destroyed rather than collected. A major advantage of incineration is that virtually any gaseous organic stream can be incinerated safely and cleanly, provided proper engineering design and management are used.
