A study was conducted to assess the applicability of various approaches to resource recovery to selected waste generators. The resource recovery systems and technologies were limited to those operating in the small-scale range, defined as less than 100 tons per day input, or those approaches considered to be low technology, defined as having more than 50 percent of operation and maintenance costs associated with labor, i.e., labor intensive. The generators included institutions, commercial sources, office building complexes, multi-unit residences and small cities.
