Abstract : This volume describes the projects as a whole. The overall goal of the project was to determine the reliability and cost-effectiveness of a 100 tons/day rotary kiln incinerator in processing soil contaminated with dioxins and other hazardous constituents of Herbicide Orange. The demonstration project consisted of three phases: (1) demonstration of the effectiveness of the incinerator to process the soil; (2) Demonstration of the ability of the incinerator to meet Resource Conservation and Recovery Act requirements; and (3) Determination of the cost and reliability of using the incinerator on a long- term basis. Five verification test burns were conducted and evaluated for a range of operating conditions. One hundred tons of contaminated soil were processed. Soil feed rates ranged between 2.8 and 6.3 tons/hour. Average kiln temperatures for the five test burns varied between 1,355 and 1,645 F. The Secondary Combustion Chamber average temperatures for the five test burn varied between 2,097 and 2,174 F.
