Incineration is often proposed as the treatment of choice for processing diverse wastes, particularly hazardous wastes. Where such treatment is proposed, people are often fearful that it will adversely affect their health.
In the Kepone case, as in other instances of toxic contamination, the victims confronted problems of care, compensation, and clean-up. The case illustrates two major causes of a chemical disaster: organizational pathologies of public bureaucracies, and irresponsible production by private corporations. ment program may include several options phased in over a long period of time during which refuse quan-tities, constituents and the overall economic picture sanitary landﬁll established and operated according to Municipal Solid Waste Incineration.

The Kepone Incineration Test (KIT) program was undertaken to evaluate incineration as a method of destroying Kepone and Kepone-containing materials and to determine the range of operating variables required for complete de- struction.

Later, Kepone waste and other chemicals were found to have been dumped into the. James River by Allied and Life Science. Life Science was fined $. Kepone, but had also severely contaminated the James River estuary. To assess the potential risk to the public, Virginia initiated a finfish-monitoring program in late Over Kepone incineration test program book next 40 years o samples were collected from the James River and Chesapeake Bay and analyzed for Kepone.
Kepone production was eventually banned worldwide File Size: 3MB. In the aftermath of the Kepone disaster in Virginia, it was decided that co-incineration offered the best approach to the disposal of the contaminated sludge that was stored in the Hopewell lagoon.
A facility available in Toledo, Ohio appeared to be that most convenient for a series of test burns to establisl the necessary conditions for a large scale disposal by: 1.

Few people in the air pollution control field will deny the significant contribu' tion of domestic, commercial and munici'. Kepone, also known as chlordecone, is a toxic, nonbiodegradable insecticide that a chemical plant in Hopewell, Virginia dumped into the James River from until The chemical's negative effect on the environment was documented and eventually publicized, leading authorities to shut down the Allied Chemical Corporation plant that produced Kepone and to order fishing bans and advisories.

Additional Data. Incinerator Testing Programs Abstract This paper is a discussion of the widely varied and uncoordinated efforts to study and evaluate Incinerator design through field and laboratory tests and test pro grams.
The Incinerator industry has not been placed in its proper perspective. Air pollution, fire hazard and com. Scientists still study Kepone, and a professor at the University of Akron, Greg Wilson, is working on a definitive book to be published next year.
For most people, it's a distant memory. But in. Kepone: a chemical disaster in Hopewell, Virginia. Reich MR, Spong JK. One of the most costly chemical disasters in the United States involved a small, single-product manufacturer, ironically named Life Science Products Company, which made the pesticide Kepone for Allied Chemical Corporation.
Life Science operated only 16 months in and Cited by: 8. Kepone, also known as chlordecone, is an organochlorine compound and a colourless solid. This compound is an obsolete insecticide related to Mirex and DDT.
Its use was so disastrous that it is now prohibited in the western world, but only after many millions of kilograms had been al formula: C₁₀Cl₁₀O.IDENTIFICATION: Kepone, also called chlordecone, is a tan to white crystalline solid.
It is odorless. Kepone is not very soluble in water. USE: Kepone was previously used as an insecticide. The manufacture of kepone in the US has been prohibited since The registration to allow using kepone in the US was canceled in Kepone ALS Environmental may or may not test for Kepone (CAS # ).
