The purpose of this project was to study processing equipment and systems to convert municipal solid waste (MSW) into a fuel or a fuel feedstock. The first phase was to review the present state of the art and identify the research needs required to advance the technology of waste-to-energy systems. Test plans were then formulated and field tests conducted to meet some of the research needs. The study is intended to provide information useful in the design, selection and operation of fuel and feedstock preparation equipment for existing and future waste-to-energy systems. Volume I presents the results of the first phase of the project and covers two principal subjects: (1) the present state of the art, and (2) the additional research needs concerning processing equipment for waste-to-energy systems.
