This report is the result of six separate investigations of disposal of municipal refuse by incineration in the District of Columbia. Heat and can-metal recovery are examined in depth, since utillization of by-products is an important aspect of solid waste disposal by any method. The economics of providing such facilities are also considered in relation to the overall scheme of the proposed plant. Size reduction of bulky metal objects and of oversize burnable waste would contribute greatly to the efficiency of the plant; however, this would call for installation of specialized equipment. The economic practically of utilizing such processes is discussed. The report includes information regarding the potential problem of air pollution. There is estimation of the chemical constituents of effluent gasses and of the air pollution hazard. An evaluation of various abatement devices is also given. All factors, such as performance standards and aesthetic objections, are reviewed for this feasibility study on the disposal of municipal refuse in a specific area. (Author)
