1. Apparatus for incinerating difficult-to-dispose-of waste products, said apparatus comprising:

  • a. particle delivery means;

    b. a modified furnace; and

    c. combustion product withdrawal means,wherein said particle deliver means transfers small particles of said waste products from waste particle storage to an ignition tube positioned within said modified furnace, wherein said ignition tube is connected to said particle delivery means through an upper furnace wall, wherein said ignition tube is looped into a coil shape such that said small particles travel through said ignition tube in a downwardly spiraling motion and such that said small particles travelling through said ignition tube contact interior ignition tube walls of said ignition tube, wherein said combustion product withdrawal means is affixed to said modified furnace, wherein said combustion product withdrawal means removes combustion gas products formed by the incineration of said small particles from said ignition tube at a lower furnace section such that said combustion gas products are directed up past said ignition tube to contact exterior ignition tube walls of said ignition tube, and wherein said combustion gas products are transferred out of said upper furnace section and into heat recovery means.
