Abstract
THE RESEARCH PROPOSED HEREIN IS A STUDY ON THE POSSIBLE BENEFITS TO MASS BURN ENERGY RECOVERY INCINERATION OF INDUSTRIAL/MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE BY THE REMOVAL OF METALS AND OTHER NONCOMBUSTIBLES FROM THE WASTE PRIOR TO INCINERATION. THESE FACILITIES TYPICALLY SUFFER FROM HIGH LEVELS OF EXHAUST STACK EMMISSIONS, THERMAL INEFFICIENCIES, AND HIGH MAINTENANCE COSTS. STEAM PRODUCTION EFFICIENCIES, EXHAUST STACK EMISSIONS, COMBUSTOR TEMPERATURE PROFILES, AND WASTE THROUGHPUT WILL BE MONITORED AND COMPARED TO UNTREATED FUEL VALUES. THESE RESULTS WILL INDICATE THE POSSIBLE BENEFITS AND POTENTIAL PROBLEMS IN INCINERATOR OPERATION UTILIZING A PREBURN SEPARATION PROCESS. SHOULD POSITIVE BENEFITS BE INDICATED THE SOLID WASTE SEPARATION PROCESS WHICH IS DESIGNED TO ALLOW RETROFIT TO EXISTING INDUSTRIAL/MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE MASS BURN INCINERATORS.
