ABSTRACT
The article indicates how an improved design on incinerator and the elimination of dioxin forming materials enables the reduction to more acceptable labels in the U.S. It describes a single 20-foot diameter incinerator eliminates dioxin emissions and could reduce waste disposal costs. Moreover, the reduction of the dioxin forming waste materials such as vinyl plastics from the incinerator feed enables individuals living near the facility to less likely develop life-threatening illnesses.
