Title Remedial measures for wastes containing polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and dibenzofurans (PCDFs): destruction, containment or process modification
Bibliographic information 1983, Vol.27, No.1, p.57-72. Illus. 51 ref.
Abstract Destruction measures discussed are photolysis, microbiological techniques, incineration (land-based, at-sea), chemical methods (alkaline dehydrochlorination, catalytic reduction with iron chlorides, catalytic oxidation with ruthenium tetroxide, micellar catalysis with chloroiodides, chlorolysis), landfill. Alternative manufacturing processes for 2,4,5-trichlorophenol are discussed on account of the risk of reactor explosions.
