Presently waste incineration is one of the most commonly used techniques for residual waste processing. It is an important step of making inert and compacting the waste before disposal. More strict legal regulations for the reduction of emissions requires the improvement of existing process control. This chapter presents several methods and approaches to improve the current status of process control systems, especially the application of machine intelligence methods. These methods comprise Neural Networks, Fuzzy Control and Machine Learning techniques.
