  Handbook, Guidance on Setting Permit Conditions and Reporting Trial Burn Results (EPA/625/6-89/019) January 1989

This handbook provides guidance for establishing operational conditions for incinerators. It provides a means for state and local agencies to achieve a level of consistency in setting permit conditions that will result in more uniform permit conditions nationwide. This handbook has been developed to assist permit writers in translating trial burn results into site-specific operational conditions in an incinerator permit.

Contents include a detailed discussion of control parameters, design considerations, and suggested reporting formats. These parameters are presented along with guidance on how to develop permit operating conditions using the trial burn data. The guidance also assists applicants in planning trial burns in order to address the key operating parameters that must be measured. It also emphasizes the necessity to test worst-case operations so that permit applicants can tailor their proposed operating conditions to the needs of their facility.

This document is part of the Hazardous Waste Incineration Guidance series prepared by EPA to assist both the applicant and the permit writer in the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act process leading to a final operating permit for hazardous waste incinerators.
