Abstract Data are presented from the testing of full-scale hazardous waste combustors in California. The following conclusions may be drawn from this data: * Data from California facilities show that a Destruction and Removal Efficiency (DRE) of 99.99%, HCI removal of 99%, and particulate emissions of 0.08 grains/DSCF can be achieved if there is adequate residence time, combustion temperature, excess oxygen and adequate air pollution control equipment. * For a range of facilities, factors that influence combustion (temperature, residence time, stoichiometry) do not significantly influence DRE at the levels of concern (above 99.99%). * For a range of facilities, factors that indicate combustion efficiency (levels of CO and Total Unburned Hydrocarbons in the stack gas) may correlate with DRE, and with each other. * For some isolated facilities, data may correlate between factors that influence or indicate good combustion and with the measure of combustion efficiency, DRE.
