The report focuses on technical assistance to the City of Mobile in establishing the feasibility of resource recovery. The study reviews the City and County's collection and disposal systems, surveys the industrial and institutional energy users, reviews existing technologies, develops a preliminary system definition with 'first order' economics for a Mobile project and assist the City in legal/institutional concerns. A modular/waste heat boiler system with a discrete fossil-fuel-fired superheater with a throughput of 250 TPD7 is recommended in order to produce turbine-quality steam.
