Environmental Performance Test of Hazardous Waste Incinerator in Indonesia

Kardono Kardono


One of the effective ways to reduce industrial hazardous and toxic wastes is to burn them in the incinerator. Advantages of hazardous and toxic waste incineration cause incinerator business in Indonesian to evolve. Besides, it is triggered by the availability of supporting regulations, such as the Regulation of the State Minister of Environment [1] that allows business people to have licenses to treat hazardous and toxic waste through incinerator. However, the operation of the hazardous and toxic waste incinerator must meet the performance test as regulated by the Government of Indonesia [2], such as destruction removal efficiency (DRE) of principal organic hazardous constituents (POHCs), combustion efficiency, gas residence time, concentration of emitted particulates and heavy metals, HCl and other gaseous pollutants. This paper presents the procedures and results of a case study of the trial burn test (TBT) conducted for the hazardous waste rotary kiln incinerator typically done in Indonesia.
