Energy recovery is emerging as a viable solid waste management alternative for many smaller communities in the United States; however, the implementation of such projects requires considerable investment in front-end planning and development, which many municipal officials cannot make while significant doubts exist as to the suitability of the solid waste management alternative for their communities. The objective of the guide is to provide these officials with the means to perform a preliminary assessment of the feasibility of energy recovery with a minimum amount of effort and cost. The guide is intended for communities with populations ranging from approximately 30,000 to 200,000. The technology discussed in the document is limited to the consideration of modular incineration, which is generally the most appropriate technology for small communities.
