This course describes and quantifies whenever possible the air pollution particulate emissions which are the direct result of the incineration process. The incineration process consists of burning solid, semisolid, liquid, or gaseous waste to produce carbon dioxide, water, and ash. It is an efficient means of reducing waste volume. The solid, incombustible residue of incineration is inert, sanitary, and sensibly odorless. Course Outline 1. INCINERATOR EMISSIONS 2. STACK EMISSION REGULATIONS AND THE PERMITTING PROCESS 3. MEASURING TECHNIQUES This course will give you an introduction to waste incinerators and their permitting requirements under federal law.
