NTIS: PB 190 645 :8 pages
A refractory-lined, garage-type automobile incinertor with a natural gas afterburner for air pollution control was cooperatively constructed and tested by the Bureau of Mines and the Wasatch Metal & Salvage Company in Salt Lake City, Utah. The incinerator is capable of relatively smokeless burning of 32 to 60 cars per day, depending upon the degree to which the cars are stripped prior to incineration. Preliminary burning campaigns indicate the cost of incineration to be approximately $2.75 Per car.
