An estimate of the energy potentially recoverable from waste oils, solvents, and other hazardous wastes is presented, along with a discussion of some of the technical, environmental, and Institutional barriers to energy recovery. A suggestion is made that electric utility furnaces with their high temperature and reliable operation might be used to safely destroy certain hazardous wastes. Other hazardous wastes may have to be carefully excluded from planned refuse derived fuel projects.
