This report discusses the state of the art of co-incineration of municipal refuse and sewage sludge. European and American practice is described. Four co-incineration techniques are evaluated for thermodynamic and economic feasibility; pyrolysis, multiple hearth, direct drying, and indirect drying. Each process is compared with conventional separate incineration with respect to cost, practicality, and project environmental impact. Recommendations for specific demonstrations are made and EPA endorsement of co-incineration is proposed.
