The report is an assessment of emission control costs for municipal waste combustors (MWCs). The details of the cost estimates, including their development, components, and cost premises, are addressed. A model plant approach was used in the sizing and costing of the emission control systems. Due to differences in the feed waste characteristics, combustion parameters, and emissions, separate cost estimates were required for mass burning (MB), modular (MOD), refuse-derived fuel (RDF), and fluid bed combustion (FBC) type furnaces. Cost estimates were developed for control of particulate matter (PM) emissions only and for control of both acid gas and PM emissions from the MWC model plants. Controlled PM emission levels of 0.03, 0.02, and 0.01 gr/dscf, corrected to 12 percent CO2, and 90 and 70 percent reductions of HC1 and SO2, respectively, were used to develop the control cost estimates. Costs were developed using the cost information received from a number of air pollution control equipment manufacturers.
