This report presents the results of a preliminary assessment of the feasibility of resource recovery, in particular, a low-BTU hot gas system, as a means of displacing natural gas used in the City's electricity generating plant. This work involved assessing the technical feasibility of three waste-to-energy concepts under various assumptions of waste throughput and utility boiler operating levels. In addition, study-level estimates were developed. The final aspect of this study involved identifying the major tasks to be performed by the City and the utilities commission prior to implementing a resource recovery project. These activities reflect the results of three site visits to the City of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, and discussions with City officials and personnel from the utilities commission, City of New Smyrna Beach, Florida.
