Abstract Tests on the pilot-plant scale showed that concentrations of toxic pollutants in the combustion products are low when chlorine-containing organic wastes are burned under correct conditions. Residual pollutants in the exhaust gas (chlorine, hydrogen chloride, nitrogen oxides, phosgene) can be removed in scrubbers with dilute alkali.
