Dioxin Treatment Technologies
DIANE Publishing, Mar 1, 1991 - 80 pages
Presents the status of national efforts to cleanup dioxin-contaminated sites and the technologies that have been used, proposed, and researched. Covers thermal and nonthermal treatment techniques as well as approaches such as stabilization and storage. Discusses development of these technologies as well as advantages and disadvantages of their use. 23 charts, tables and illustrations.

Page 27 - After the pyrolysis chamber, the product gases are scrubbed with water and caustic soda to remove hydrochloric acid and particulate matter. The remaining gases, a high percentage of which are combustible, are drawn by an induction fan to the flare stack where they are electrically ignited. In the event of a power failure, the product gases are vectored through an activated carbon filter to remove any undestroyed toxic material. The treatment system that is currently being used for testing purposes...
