This technical bulletin is one of a series of reports presenting information gathered in visits to resource recovery facilities around the United States. This study effort has been sponsored by the California State Solid Waste Management Board (CSSWMB). As a number of California resource recovery facilities approach the implementation stage, the CSSWMB has recognized the need to learn from existing projects. In late 1980, five sites were chosen and visited by staff members from Brown, Vence and Associates, consultants to the CSSWMB. These sites included both small and large scale facilities, a number of differing technologies, and projects in varying stages of implementation or operation. The subject of this technical bulletin is the Akron, Ohio RDF-dedicated boiler waste-to-energy project.
