AbstractUnder the proposed project Altex will develop a Solid Waste Remediation System (ASWRS) for onsite disposal of bulk solid wastes generated at Patrol Bases (PBs) or Combat Outposts (COPs). The system is designed to recover heat and use innovative approaches to dispose of the waste in an efficient and environmentally friendly manner with no or minimal amount of JP-8. Under the proposed Phase I the system design will be refined and a proof-of-principal test unit will be fabricated to test the critical aspects of the ASWRE and fill the data gab defined by the design activities. The data will be used to finalize the system design and define the ASWRS specs including weight, volume, cost and fuel usage. These activities will define the technical and the economics feasibility of the ASWRS and assesses its manufacturability. These Phase I will provide a foundation for a Phase II under which a prototype will be fabricated for limited field testing.
