The incineration of polymers - a combustion engineer's viewpoint: M34-20/135E-PDF
“The incineration of polymers can present difficult combustion problems and can lead to the emission of corrosive or poisonous compounds into the atmosphere. Typical municipal waste presently contains about 1.5% polymers, mostly in the form of plastic packaging materials. This can be adequately handled by well-designed municipal incinerators, and a typical system is described. Industrial incineration of pure polymers presents more serious problems, and each case should be dealt with separately. The factors which should be considered are outlined, and the combustion properties of some common polymers are described. Sometimes pilot-scale research may be necessary to develop a suitable incineration system"--Abstract, p. i.
