Handbook: Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) Procedures for Hazardous Waste Incineration

Resource Conservation and Recovery Act regulations for hazardous waste incineration require trial burns by permit applicants. A Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPjP) must accompany a trial burn plan with appropriate quality assurance/quality control procedures. Guidance on the preparation and review of OAPjPs, design of QA/QC procedures, and assessment of trial burn results is contained in this handbook. QA/QC procedures are defined for process monitoring, sampling, and analysis for both the initial trial burn and for later continuing operation of the incineration facility. Pollutant categories discussed are: principal organic hazardous constituents (POHCs), metals, particulates, acid gases, and combustion gases.

Engineers, chemists, environmental scientists, facility personnel, and EPA staff at various levels should find this handbook useful. It has been written with the EPA or State permit writer's information needs in mind, but would be of considerable interest to the permit applicant.
