Abstract : In December 1986, the mobile waste incinerator system, MWP-2000 was used to successfully treat soil contaminated with 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodi-benzo-p- dioxin (TCDD) at the Naval Construction Battalion Center (NCBC) in Gulfport, Mississippi. The contamination resulted from earlier spills at a herbicide orange (HO) storage area at NCBC. The mobility and availability of this plant provided a means of demonstrating the incinerator technology at full size under field conditions as part of the research, test, and evaluation phase of the U.S. Air Force Environmental Restoration Program. This report covers the verification test burns, which was the first phase of three phases. The MWP-2000 incinerator system is designed to destroy and detoxify solid, semisolid, and/or liquid wastes. Major components of the system are (1) a waste feed system, (2) rotary kiln with outlet cyclones, secondary combustion chamber (SCC) with an auxiliary feed system, air pollution control train, storage tanks and other support equipment. Soil is fed to the kiln where it is exposed to temperatures in the 1200-1800 deg F range. Soil and gases exit the kiln, where the soil is collected and the gases pass through a cyclone, to separate out particulates, and enter the SCC. The gases are raised to a temperature of 2100-2200 deg F in the SCC to complete destruction of primary organic hazardous constituents that are present. Exiting gases flow through the air pollution control train and out the stack.
