This report presents the progress made during the component design phase of a program to develop an economical and environmentally safe waste-energy system known as the CPU-400. It discusses the hardware development and low pressure testing performed to evaluate CPU-400 operational characteristics in a large scale pilot plant. Significant accomplishments made during this contract period included: the final procurement and testing of hot gas system components such as the full scale vertical combustor, three particle separators, and ash removal equipment; the final design and procurement of a computerized process control system; the procurement of a turbo-electric system, including the completion of all design required for its incorporation into the pilot plant; the completion of a survey of gas turbines for the prototype plant; and the successful performance of long duration, low pressure testing of all components integrated into the pilot plant system. Other work accomplished during the contract period included the quantitative and qualitative analyses of off-gases from the solid waste-fired combustor, the testing of a subscale granular filter, and the improvement of the solid waste processing systems throughout rate.
