Abstract The Institute of Gas Technology (IGT) is developing an advanced multipurpose incinerator that combines the fluidizedbed agglomeration/incineration and cyclonic combustion/ incineration technologies that have been developed separately at IGT over many years. This two-stage combination results in a unique and extremely flexible multipurpose incinerator for solid, sludge, liquid, and gaseous wastes. This system can operate over a wide range of conditions in the first stage, from low temperature (desorption) to high temperature (agglomeration), including gasification of high-Btu wastes. In the combined system, solid, liquid, and gaseous organic wastes would be easily and efficiently destroyed [>99.99% destruction and removal efficiency (DRE)], whereas solid inorganic contaminants or solid residue would be contained within a glassy matrix, rendering them benign and suitable for disposal in an ordinary landfill. This technology is different from other existing technologies because of its agglomeration and encapsulation capability and its flexibility with respect to the types of wastes it can handle. Both the fluidized bed as well as the cyclonic incineration technologies have been fully developed and tested separately at pilot scales.
