||The St. Louis Union Electric System is the first demonstration plant in the U.S. to process raw municipal waste for use as a supplementary fuel in power plant boilers. In addition to producing a fuel, ferrous metals are recovered from the waste for use as a scrap charge in steel production. Two separate facilities comprise the system--a processing plant operated by the City of St. Louis, and two identical boilers (tangentially fired), which were modified to fire shredded air classified refuse along with coal at the Union Electric Company's Meramec Plant near St. Louis. EPA contracted with MRI to conduct a test and evaluation program. This program includes equipment and facilities evaluations and environmental assessments at both the refuse processing plant operated by the City of St. Louis and the refuse firing facility operated by Union Electric Company's Meramec Plant. This interim report presents (a) test methodology, (b) equipment and facilities evaluation, and (c) environmental evaluations.
