Abstract

Simulations of high-temperature chlorocarbon combustion in a three-stage model incinerator using a detailed reaction mechanism show that chlorine may need to be considered as a product under fuel-lean conditions, although it is well below HC1 levels. Chlorine emissions are significantly reduced under fuel-rich conditions, but at the expense of a similar increase in CO. Operation slightly fuel-lean with the controlled addition of high-temperature steam at conditions representative of the first stage reactor exit is generally found to yield a lower combined total of Clx and CO emissions.
