This report describes in detail the results of monitoring three small municipal incinerators, including one that incorporates steam recovery. The three incinerators tested were all under 50 TPD design capacity per furnace and were burning typical municipal solid waste. Cost information was accumulated for each facility and, where applicable, revenue from steam sales was included. Operational, performance, and environmental analyses were performed for all units involved. This report is the latest state-of-the-art report on small incineration, should serve as a guide for municipalities considering such a system, and can be used for comparison purposes in future solid waste system evaluations.
