The report gives results of estimating particulate flue gas loadings for combined firing of shredded municipal waste (MSW) and oil, using existing data on particulate emissions from oil-fired electric utility boilers and from waterwall (steam generating) incinerators firing either waste or waste-plus-coal/oil auxiliary fuel. Control device performance was estimated for several planned oil/MSW resource recovery systems. On the basis of these estimates, installed particulate emission controls, designed for coal, are predicted to be significantly less efficient for control of particulate emissions from combined firing of oil/MSW. Anticipated control difficulties result mostly from relatively high particulate loadings, high flue gas volumes, fine particulates, relatively low particle density, and relatively high fractions of carbonaceous low-resistivity particulate.
