To resolve the operational problems such as agglomeration, fouling, sintering and corrosion due to low-melting eutectics formed by alkali and alkaline-earth metals in the wastewater, evaporation-crystallization method was used to remove alkali and alkaline-earth metals and decrease demand of assistant fuel before incineration. Salty concentrated liquid was recycled to be re-evaporated. The removal efficiency of Na+ in NaCl is 99.88%. The ratio of organic compounds volatilization is higher than 99.00%. Organic waste steam was incinerated in fluidized bed combustion (FBC). Combustion efficiency is influenced by bed temperature and air flux. As the temperature is increased from 650?C to 900?C at the air flux of 20m3/h, combustion efficiency is increased from 88.74% to 99.90%. When the air flux is increased from 20m3/h to 30m3/h, combustion efficiency is decreased, especially at the lower temperature. Reduction of the concentration of organic compounds can decrease the heat value of the steam, and then, reduce combustion efficiency.
