Abstract:

At the request of HQ SACSGPB, source testing for particulate, chloride and visible emissions was conducted on the hospital Pathological Waste Incinerator. Testing was accomplished on 30 Aug 89. The survey was conducted to determine if the incinerator will meet the hospitals future needs. Incinerator usage will increase due to the closure of Mather AFB. Results indicate that the incinerator met both particulate and visible emissions standards. There is no standard for chloride emissions in the Yuba Air Pollution Control District. However, the incinerator will not be capable of handling an increased workload. A long term disposal method for pathological waste needs to be developed.
