The Course Manual, addresses the training needs of municipal waste combustor (MWC) operators. The training program focuses on the knowledge required by operators for understanding the basis for proper operation and maintenance of MWC's with particular emphasis on the aspects of combustion which are important for environmental control. The training program includes general introductory material relative to municipal solid waste (MSW) treatment and MSW as a fuel. The bulk of the program addresses the principles of good combustion. The potential sources of air pollution emissions and their control are discussed. Instrumentation, automatic control systems, control room operations and practices, and the troubleshooting of upsets are presented. Special system considerations are included: water teatment, electrical theory, and turbines and generators. Finally, risk management procedures such as preventive maintenance and safety considerations are addressed.
