Sewage Sludge Incinerator Application NoteIndustrial Processing - Sewage Sludge Incinerator
The solid residues from sewage treatment are destroyed by burning in a boiler. The flue gases are scrubbed of particles, acid gases and, finally, mercury. The preferred method for mercury removal is to pass the gases through a scrubber containing powdered activated carbon (PAC). However PAC oxidizes readily and can catch fire if it becomes overheated.

Industrial Processing Application Note - Municipal Solid Waste IncineratorIndustrial Processing - Municipal Solid Waste Incinerator
Municipal solid waste (MSW) disposal plants incinerate garbage and generate power using a moving-grate boiler. Because of the nature of the fuel, the feed system for the MSW does not always provide an even flow of refuse onto the burner grates, and it is difficult to view burning material for a consistent fuel flow rate.

Liquid Waste Incineration at Hazardous Waste Plants -Application Note ENIndustrial Processing - Liquid Waste Incineration at Hazardous Waste Plants
Hazardous organic chemical wastes are destroyed by high-temperature incineration in a variety of kilns. The high temperature and extended residence time in the kiln ensure full destruction of the material. To meet the regulated disposal requirements, specific temperature and time limits must to maintained to ensure complete destruction of material.
