Treatment of Off-gas from Radioactive Waste Incinerators

English STI/DOC/010/302 92-0-125389-3
46.50 1989

Description

The field of gaseous effluent treatment systems for incinerators is wide ranging. Efficient treatment systems extract contaminated air process gases and retain them by physical or chemical means. Off-gas cleaning systems have been developed to a high technical standard. The primary purpose of this publication is to describe the current design of off-gas cleaning technologies used in incinerator facilities for low level solid and liquid wastes.
Contents: 1. Introduction; 2. Waste characteristics; 3. Incinerator types and characteristics of off-gas streams; 4. Environmental and regulatory considerations; 5. General descriptions of technologies for off-gas treatment; 6. Component design aspects and performance characteristics; 7. Summary of individual systems and operational experience; 8. Safety and operational upset conditions; 9. Problems and development needs; 10. Conclusions; Appendix A: Individual systems and operational experience.
