Greetings,

Here in Ohio, we're discussing the usage of the portable incinerators, from an air pollution standpoint.  I've been working with a colleague in the Ohio EPA Division of Air Pollution Control.  I'd like to know if anyone is aware of any recent research on the effectiveness of portable incinerators, or if they are being used in other states.  And if you would like to share incineration options in your state, I would be interested in hearing them.

Thank you,
Deb
