REPORT OF THE INTERAGENCY AD HOC WORK GROUP FOR THE CHEMICAL WASTE INCINERATOR SHIP PROGRAM

The United States is faced with a serious and massive hazardous materials disposal problem. The public health and the nation's environment are being threatened by the accumulation of uncontrolled, ever increasing volumes of hazardous waste. Incineration at sea aboard specially designed or modified ships has been demonstrated to be a safe, effective, and environmentally acceptable means for the destruction of liquid hazardous organic chemical wastes. The Interagency Ad Hoc Work Group for the Chemical Waste Incinerator Ship Program was established in February 1980 to conduct a study of at-sea incineration technology and to examine various alternatives available to the Federal Government leading to the design, construction, and operation of the findings of the Interagency Ad Hoc Work Group for the Chemical Waste Incinerator Ship Program.
