Several materials and a variety of different energy products can potentially be recovered from municipal solid waste and sold to produce revenue. The recoverable forms of energy include solid, liquid, and gaseous fuels as well as steam and electricity. The materials that are considered to be the primary recovery candidates are paper, ferrous metals, glass, and aluminum. This report discusses the markets for these energy and material products, focusing on those characteristics that affect marketability. Discussed are descriptions and locations of potential markets, the product quality required by those markets, and approximate market prices. The report then addresses marketing techniques, including how to conduct a market research and obtain a purchase agreement.
