Thermal treatment

  • thermal treatment
  • 1) Heating and cooling a metal or alloy to obtain desired properties or conditions. 2) Treatment of hazardous waste in a device which uses elevated temperatures as the primary means to change the chemical, physical, or biological character or composition of the hazardous waste. Examples of thermal treatment processes are incineration, molten salt, pyrolysis, calcination, wet air oxidation, and microwave discharge.
Abstract from DBPedia
    Thermal treatment is any waste treatment technology that involves high temperatures in the processing of the waste feedstock. Commonly this involves the combustion of waste materials. Systems that are generally considered to be thermal treatment include: * Cement kiln * Gasification * Incineration * Mechanical heat treatment * Pyrolysis * Thermal depolymerization * Waste autoclaves
