This report is a technical, economic and environmental evaluation of two small modular incinerator systems with heat recovery. One unit in North Little Rock, Arkansas has a thru-put of 100 tons of municipal solid waste per day and recovers steam. The other unit is a 25 TPD device located at the Rockwell Plant in Marysville, Ohio, and burns in plant waste to produce steam for heating and cooling the factory.

Contents Notes
This program involved a technical, environmental, and economic assessment of the feasibility of utilizing small modular incinerator systems for solid waste disposal in municipal and industrial applications. The assessment was implemented by (1) overviewing the state-of-the-art, (2) selecting two operational sites (one municipal and one industrial) representative of the state-of-the-art, and (3) subjecting these two sites to a rigorous field evaluation. The two facilities selected for this study were a municipal incinerator plant with a Consumat system in North Little Rock, Arkansas, and the industrial incinerator facility with a Kelley system in the plant of the Truck Axle Division of the Rockwell International Corporation in Marysville, Ohio. This selection was the result of a nationwide survey to find those two facilities which best satisfied several criteria. The principal selection requirements were a solid waste processing module with heat recovery and a capacity of 50 tons or less per day and its being representative of current technology, designs, and operational procedures.
