Abstract:

TIAX and CQ Inc. propose to develop a solid waste preprocessor (SWP) system based on briquetting technology. Briquetting is a time-proven solid fuel preparation technique used widely around the world with a variety of feed stocks. This project addresses the two key challenges to developing a preprocessor system for the Army's waste to energy conversion system. The first challenge is to define the critical parameters of the required preprocessing steps that produce satisfactory briquettes. The second is to identify process equipment that can accomplish or be modified to accomplish these steps within size, weight, and performance requirements of the OFWECS. Phase I will define, through interaction with WEC developers and process testing, the critical parameters of the required preprocessing steps that produce satisfactory briquettes. An Optional Phase I will further identify process equipment manufacturers for the required components and develop plans to modify the equipment to be within the size, weight and performance requirements of the OFWECS Phase II will develop a prototype preprocessor/briquetter system based on the process parameters and preliminary design generated in Phase I that meets the requirement of and can be integrated with the WEC.
