These wastes can take the form of solids, sludges, liquids, or gases. So, the range of hazardous wastes, and their effects is large and diverse. Attributes of hazardous wastes are: irritation, corrosivity, and bioconcentration. The observable effects are a function of exposure, the longer a person is exposed, the more serious the effects. Nearly all industry produces some waste and since no one is likely to independently shut down an industry that makes the waste, we need some guidelines and regulations.

It consists of a refractory-lined circular steel shell, with refractory hearths located one above the other. Solid waste or partially dewatered sludge is fed to the top of the unit where a rotating plow rake plows it across the hearth to dropholes. The uncombusted material falls to the next hearth and the process is repeated until the combustion is complete. Fluidized-bed incinerators (FBI) are applicable to the destruction of halogenated organic waste streams. This type of incinerator consists of a vessel in which inert granular particles are fluidized by a low velocity air stream which is passed through a distributor plate below the bed.

A review of current laboratory work follows. The work discussed to date has been aerobic but there are anaerobic bacteria that degrade many compounds with certain advantages over aerobic degradation. 37 38 Biotechnology for Waste and Wastewater Treatment They have a different type of metabolism. This will be discussed prior to the laboratory work. Included in this section and not in the pilot studiedin-situ section is work on 1, 1 ,1-trichloroethane, which is an insitu study. It is placed here because it is an example of anaerobic degradation.
