A new process for the destruction of hazardous waste makes use of supercritical water SCW as the medium for a rapid and highly efficient oxidation reaction. Destruction efficiencies of 99.99 and greater have been achieved for a broad spectrum of organic chloride compounds and solvents. This report presents the results of bench scale tests of the SCW system on a variety of compounds which yielded information on destruction efficiency, performance capacity, reaction kinetics, fate of inorganic heteroatoms and system corrosion. Keywords Supercritical water Hazardous waste, Destruction Oxidation, Hazardous materials.
