Abstract:

The study revealed A combination freezingincineration process is unsuitable at this time since the needed freezing technology has not been established. The Zimmerman process is unsatisfactory because the effluent therefrom remains toxic. A combined submerged combustion-incineration process is feasible if a cheap source of natural gas is available. The evaporationincineration process is effective but expensive, capital investment being estimated at 445,000 for a capacity of 50 tons TNT per day and operating costs being estimated at 45 cents per 100 pounds of TNT. The Atomized Suspension Technique appears promising, but pilot studies are needed to establish its efficiency. Author
