The present report represents the continuation of the first major effort to examine the solid waste problem from the standpoint of systems analysis. An overall solid waste generation and evaluation model was developed, demonstrating interrelationships between land use, technology, economics, population, and other system elements. Practical implications were drawn from this model, as they relate to planning, public health, and application of technology. The following topics are discussed: Planning and economics; Operations research in solid wastes; Anaerobic digestion; Biological fractionation of solid wastes; Incineration -- pyrolysis-combustion; Wet oxidation of organic solid waste materials.
