Abstract
Following the Federal Government's decision to ban general use of DDT in Canada, many government agencies were left with stocks of surplus DDT formulations. The largest stock in the Department of National Defence was 107,000 gallons of DDT/kerosene solution; in order to dispose of this, the Defence Research Establishment Suffield had built an incinerator specifically designed to decompose chlorinated hydrocarbons. This paper describes the background history and design of this incinerator facility and outlines its construction and operation. It includes a report on the successful results of the first two months' operating experience, and discusses future plans for destruction of unwanted chemicals.
