An overview of the conventional and emerging thermal treatment technologies for hazardous waste destruction is presented. ICP (Inductively Coupled Plasma) technology has a high potential for the destruction of such toxic chemicals as PCB or halogenated organic compounds, and has been successfully tested in pilot demonstrations in the U. S., but many scientific and technical problems remain to be solved. The scientific basis of the technology for hazardous waste destruction and technical issues needing further study are discussed.
