    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This guide addresses incineration as a means of waste disposal and specifically discusses incinerating oil spill wastes at temporary field locations.

    Formerly under the juridiction of Committee F20 on Hazardous Substances and Oil Spill Response, this guide was withdrawn in September 2010 because it is dated and no replacement is necessary.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide addresses incineration as a means of waste disposal and specifically discusses incinerating oil spill wastes at temporary field locations.

    1.2 The purpose of this guide is to provide the user with general information on incineration as a means of disposal, not to define a rigid set of standards. It is intended as a reference to plan or execute disposal by incineration.

    1.3 This guide outlines procedures and describes some equipment that can be applied to a land-based field incineration process. Included in the guide is a description of typical oil spill wastes that can be incinerated; an outline of procedures to select, prepare, operate, and restore a temporary site; and a summary of general site safety considerations.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary information is given in Section 7.
