An Introduction to Incinerator Emissions and Permitting

COURSE NO: C03-043
An Introduction to Incinerator Emissions and Permitting
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to waste incineration and permitting requirements for incinerators. It describes and quantifies whenever possible the air pollution particulate emissions which are the direct result of the incineration process.


The incineration process consists of burning solid, semisolid, liquid, or gaseous waste to produce carbon dioxide, water, and ash. It is an efficient means of reducing waste volume. The solid, incombustible residue of incineration is inert, sanitary, and sensibly odorless.


This 3 PDH onlinecourse is intended for mechanical engineers, civil engineers, other design and construction professionals, and operating technicians seeking an introduction to waste incineration fundamentals.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Learning about the types of incinerator waste material
  • Learning about emission factors for refuse incinerators without controls
