Characterization of solid wastes materials is necessary in the planning, designing, operation, and evaluation of refuse processing and disposal systems and facilities. A literature survey of existing methods revealed that a generally new macroanalytical technique would have to be developed for the determination of carbon in solid wastes materials. An investigation into the basic types of carbon methods revealed that the dry combustion-purification-gravimetric approach, which also yields the hydrogen content of samples, is the most promising. This report is an account of the development of such a carbon-hydrogen method.
