Fundamentals of Waste Incineration and New Technologies


Comply with statutory regulations by understanding the fundamentals of waste incineration and new technologies.

This 90-minute webinar provides an overview of the roles of waste characteristics, incinerator design, and operation to comply with statutory regulations and whether additional treatments are necessary, such as air pollution control and ash treatment.

You’ll also learn the factors leading to emissions of acid gases, metals, particulate matter and incomplete combustion products and those affecting ash quality.

This course is designed for professionals who need to be familiar with waste treatment options, or are interested in learning more about incineration technology, including:

  • Environmental Managers
  • Permitting Officers
  • Incinerator Operators
  • Those considering installation of a new incinerator
  • Operations personnel
  • Those responsible for procurement of waste treatment technology

This webinar provides an overview of the roles of waste characteristics, incinerator design, and operation to comply with statutory regulations. Upon completion of the webinar, you’ll:

  • Understand waste characteristics and incineration technology as a waste treatment option.
  • Identify cases when additional treatments are necessary.
  • Understand what factors affect complete combustion and ash quality.
  • Understand what factors lead to emissions of acid gases, metals, particulate matter, and other products of incomplete combustion.

The knowledge you’ll gain applies to all waste incinerators, but small-scale solid waste incineration will be emphasized as in certain cases, it can be the most difficult to deal with.

Why is this topic important to environmental professionals?

Environmental professionals working within remote areas or other situations where waste treatment options may include waste incineration. This webinar provides an overview of these technologies and how you can comply with regulations.

What is the course format?

This is a recorded webinar that is 90 minutes in duration. Upon purchase, you will be emailed a link to the Recording Information page where you can view and download the recording. You’ll also receive access to the slide deck used in the webinar recording.

When did the live webinar take place?

The live webinar took place on September 2, 2015.

Do I need to buy separate course materials (e.g. textbooks, guides, etc.)?

All of your learning materials are included, so you don’t need to buy anything extra.
