Abstract:

A system for destroying small stocks of DDT-kerosene solutions in situ was developed. The system is designed to be fabricated from commonly available materials, i.e., an oil burner, pipe fittings, sheet metal, a water pump and refractory material for lining the 55 gal drum used as a furnace. The system is capable of burning about 5 gallons of DDT solution per hour. Tests of the effluent from a prototype system by the Army Environmental Hygiene Agency showed that the emissions were below the prescribed safe limits.
