Abstract:Passionate public discussions of the environmental acceptability of waste incineration reflect not only the growing awareness of ecological problems but also a certain opposition to large scale technical processes. This paper attempts to define requirements for low pollutant waste incineration and to draft technical measures suitable to meet those high standards. Low pollutant waste incineration can only be achieved if the applied technologies are aimed at both the reduction of stack emissions and the quality of the combustion and gas cleaning residues. Appropriate technical processes have been developed. Their assembly into a state of the art system demands great care in evaluating and balancing such different aspects as technical performance, ecological acceptability and expense.
