An evaluation of the feasibility of the economics of establishing a resource recovery system in the TVA region is presented. This system would consist of collecting, transporting and processing of the municipal solid waste: (1) processing municipal solid waste and burning the fuel fraction with coal in a conventional TVA power boiler modified for that purpose and (2) converting municipal solid waste to a synthesis gas with subsequent conversion to fuel grade methanol for use in TVA's gas turbines modified to accept such a fuel.
