Title:ASSURING PROTECTIVE OPERATION OF INCINERATORS BURNING DIOXIN-LISTED WASTES
RCRA Online Number:11699
Date:09/22/1992
To:Directors, Regions 1-10
From:Lowrance
Organization of Recipient:EPA
Description: The incinerator regulations do not specifically set a specific destruction and removal efficiency (DRE) for dioxins and furans. The 99.9999% DRE is demonstrated during the trial burn on principal organic hazardous constituents (POHCs) that are more difficult to incinerate than dioxins and furans. Spiking POHCs at high concentrations in the trial burn waste is standard practice. EPA recommends the use of the product of incomplete combustion (PIC) approach from the BIF rule as guidance for incinerators.
