Abstract:

An explosive waste incinerator EWI can be installed in the existing Badger AAP Contaminated Waste Processor CWP. An engineering evaluation of installing a rotary kiln furnace to dispose of waste energetic material has shown the installation to be possible. An extensive literature search was completed to develop the known proven methods of energetic waste disposal. Open burningopen detonation was not an option. Current incineration practice including thermal treatment alternatives was investigated. Existing and new equipment was reviewed for adequacy. Current CWP operations and hazardous waste to be disposed of were determined. Preliminary plans were developed for the proposed 1.5 million incinerator addition. Operating cost of the proposed 150 lbhr facility is estimated at 1.30 per pound. Comparisons were made with other AAPs EWI. AN
