-Size requirement for the incinerators is 750-850 kg capacity
-The burn rate should be 80-100 kg/hour
-The primary chamber should have an operating temperature of 900-1200 degree C
-The incinerator should have a high temperature secondary chamber and 2 second gas retention time at 850-1150 degree C so that it is suitable for high risk materials
-The incinerator should have temperature monitoring and thermostat control for ease of operation and assurance of burn temperature to confirm correct operation
-The incinerator should be capable of burning any of the hazardous wastes listed in the subsequent section
-The incinerator should be capable of burning diesel oil and should include a large fuel tank (10-500 litres) and generator (3-40 kV) set that can be carried on the trailer with the incinerator so that the unit requires no external electrical power supply
-The incinerator should be trailer mounted so that it is a portable unit
