Presented are the results of a feasibility investigation on thermal degradation of selected USAF liquid wastes in a fluidized bed incineration system. Aircraft washrack wastes, paint stripping wastes, herbicide orange, petroleum, oil and lubricant wastes POL, municipal garbage and sewage sludge were used for testing in Combustion Power Companys 3-foot diameter LSW-500 fluid bed combustor. Results show that with proper liquid waste injection locations and procedures POL wastes or shredded and air classified municipal garbage can be used as fuel to dispose of non-fuel liquid wastes without requiring supplemental fuel. When using solid waste as fuel to dispose of liquid waste or when using limestone to control HCl an additional particulate emission control device downstream of the first and second stage inertial system will be required. Combustion Power Company is presently developing a dry scrubber for this purpose.
