The report assesses future trends in MWC use by investigating current and projected levels of municipal waste generation. In projecting the need for new MWC facilities, attempts were made to define the probable configurations (including emission controls) and locations of future sources. The time frame for the characterization of trends in the MWC industry is generally the present through 1995, with limited data being available for the period to 2000. Included in the analysis of potential MWC growth are: an assessment of the existing and predicted quantities of municipal waste generated nationally; an assessment of the impact of land disposal programs on MWC demand; an assessment of factors such as pending air emission or solid waste regulations affecting resource recovery of municipal wastes; a description of the existing MWC industry and its effect on future growth.
