This report describes the results of the evaluation of the equipment and facilities for the firing of refuse-derived fuel and the assessment of the gaseous aqueous, and solid waste discharges associated with firing refuse-derived fuel during the St. Louis-Union Electric Refuse Fuel Project. Data Collection and testing at the Union Electric Company's Meramec power plant commenced in October, 1974 and continued through November, 1975. A corner fired pulverized coal boiler with a nominal 125 MW generating rate was used for the test program. A major portion of the effort was directed to the assessment of the emissions and potential environmental impacts associated with the burning of coal plus refuse derived fuel in the boiler, including an assessment of the efficiency of the electrostatic precipitator used as a pollution control device. This included evaluation of both conventional pollutants such as total particulates but also potentially hazardous pollutants. The test program included sampling and analysis of all input/output streams including coal, refuse-derived fuel, ash, and water used for bottom ash removal. It also included monitoring the boiler performance, the electrostatic precipitator performance, the firing system performance, and documentation and analysis of the costs associated with firing refuse-derived fuel.
