The report determines the technical and economic feasibility of burning prepared municipal refuse as supplementary fuel in large suspension-fired utility boilers. The study included consideration of the physical and chemical characteristics of raw refuse, and of refuse with certain of its components removed. Consideration also was given to the characteristics of the ash and residue resulting from the combustion of refuse, and to the potential effects upon operation and maintenance of the components of boiler units. The relative economics of the full-scale application of the process also was assessed, and an evaluation made of the effects upon public health and air pollution control.
